They claim to be god fearing people who have enough money that they an rent a nice flat to people who are deserving and in need of a good place to live. They will ask you to send a money gram to show you can pay for the apartment deposit of 600 Pounds and 400 pounds for first months rent. She will talk about how it's her/his lawyers suggestion for this process and that it's all perfectly legal. She will then show you the apartment when you arrive in London or wherever she is telling you they are. then if you want to sign a lease she will drive you to get the money gram and it's all good from there. SCAM SCAM SCAM. your money will be gone the next day and you'll never hear from them again.

Thanks for the reply and the information provided.I can make a perfect reservation for you for the said period of time you are willing to stay in my flat and also i 'll like you to know that my flat is a one bedroom flat not shared.I and my lawyer have both agreed to make a reservation for you so you don't need to be worried as long as you have promise me that you will take proper good care of my flat just the way it is. However, my lawyer asked me not to collect any money from you as long as you have not sign a contract neither have i taken you round my flat so he decided to make a confirmation of your financial ability before we proceed with the reservation. Henceforth, my lawyer and i have decided to carry out a simple test on financial ability to pay for my rent before coming for viewing. I would not ask you to send your bank statement. At least 1 month rent of 400GBP and security deposit which is £ 600 which is refundable after your 1st week stay in my flat,would be required from you to transfer through the Money Gram. You can make the transfer with your family member or friend's name as a sender and your name as a receiver to an address in London and you can as well use my flat address. Once you have done this, scan the receipt to me and if you do not have scanner, you may write out the details on the receipt as i will send it to my lawyer to verify if it's truly genuine and available in your custody, after verification, then we can proceed for the reservation and you can easily pick up the money at the nearest Money Gram Post Office when you arrive to London and also, i will refund back to you the cost of transfer when we meet. I look forward to reading from you soon. Regards Mr/Mrs Kelvin +447509382635
