EUR1 SCAM ARTIST – email@example.com (Paris)Date: 2009-06-02, 10:20PM CESTWarning! Watch out for this person “firstname.lastname@example.org” advertising/responding with the ad belowThe photos he gives when you request do not match his description. He says to wire his “Mom” money in the UK by Western Union wire transfer. He rushes you into making a decision. says you will share with lady but then later says that lady is his “Mom” who is in the UK. He didn’t answer all my questions properly. He tries to come across as organized and legitimate by saying his family lawyer will draw up a contract and asked for a copy of my passport! Who hires a lawyer for 4 day rental in a flat???I received FANTASTIC responses from many lovely Parisian’s who did not request a deposit and were very helpful and sincere. Be very careful with this person and investigate before perusing!.
