BEWARE of SCAMMER offer to House Sit an apartment in Le Marais, Paris
A scammer calling herself Tish Heavens, or Gruen Matthias, or the like, suggests you pay a ’security deposit’ of 380 euros via MONEYGRAM or Western Union, in return for HOUSE SITTING ‘her’ apartment in Paris rather than doing a swap.

1. she is a fake and a scam artist and it attempting a 419-scam (for scam help see http://scambuster419.co.uk/ and http://www.fraudwatchers.org)
2. the email she sends (below) has photos attached as shown below which are lifted off a web site
3. the size of the apartment she describes in her mail is much smaller than the photos reveal the real apartment to be
4. she sends the same details and agrees to let many people use the apartment at the same time
5. the phone numbers, names and addresses ’she’ provides are erroneous
6. this persons think they are clever, and can be, but don’t be tricked into doing anything other than perhaps wasting their time - sweet revenge
6. ’she’ uses Yahoo or Hotmail which are all but untraceable for us, but you can report the details to : abuse@yahoo.co.uk
7. The UK Metropolitan Police also want other people to report this person to them, as part of their case against these fraudsters : fraud.alert@met.police.uk

the email sent : “thanks for your interest in our home .I am Tish Heavens.I am disable and currently living with the eldest of my daughters (Garvy) in the UK.my husband ( Keith) searches and auctions antiques and is presently studying Culture languages in Bristol,he thinks it’s a disturbing idea that i live alone with no care or assistance concidering my present condition, so i will be staying in the Uk for as long as he will be away ,i also am taking the opportunity to be with Garvy because she has just put to bed.Its Keith’s idea that we leave our home locked up because of the terrible experience we had with the last tenant and the expenses the carelessness of the realtors left us to bare alone. But i seem to think otherwise,that’s why we have decided to look for someone responsible and genuine to occupy and take care of our property like it were his/her own. We are not exactly looking for a swap since we already are comfortable with where we live at the moment but we are more concerned about finding responsible and genuine person/persons to occupy and respect our home and properties.Our home is 2 bedroom in the heart of The Marais and the Louvre : rue Rambuteau is one of the 3 bests streets of the heart of the Marais.
