WARNING - Compassionate One Bedroom Flat

⭕ Beware - this advert is a scam, probably working on students looking for cheap flats. The ad looks great, nice pics etc. I emailed the owners and asked several questions, does it have heating, double glazing etc... none of which were answered. I then received another email asking can you keep my flat tidy and can you pay the rent? Which I duly replied to and again asked the same questions as before regarding heating etc. Still no answer, but I did get this in relpy.

Quote: Hello

Thanks for the reply and the sincere interest you have in my flat.My
flat is a one bedroom flat,I and my husband have both agreed to have
you in my flat.,it is unfortunate that my past bitter experience of
inviting people to come and view my flat without any form of
confirmation of their financial ability and not keeping up to time as
at when scheduled, has brought about great loss to me. I have traveled
all the way from Portishead to take some interested candidates round
my flat because thats where i work.Some outside tenants do not have
the money to pay the rent and yet they disturb the the landlord to
arrange a viewing with their friend or relative who are in UK,also
some do not meet up with the appointments which has led to the
dismissal of some landlords in office by there employees.

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 or
before making a reservation for any interested candidate. I would not
ask you to send your bank statement neither your pay slip because it
will be inappropriate for me to collect any money from you neither my
lawyer. At least 1 week rent and the security deposit which is £500
which is refundable after your first week stay in my flat, would be
required from you to transfer through the money gram post office.You
can make the transfer with your name as a sender name and your partner
or friend in UK premises as a receiver.

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 its truly genuine and available in your
friends custody, after verification, then we can proceed for the
viewing. Note that the transfer must be confirmed valid before the
receiver picks up the money and also, i will refund back to you the
cost of transfer when we meet.

I look forward to reading from you soon.

Mr/Mrs Carthy

As you can see, asking for money BEFORE you have even seen the flat. Renters - BEWARE
