Found a flat to rent on gumtree and sent an email to the person that advertised the flat and i received this reply hahahahah :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Hi
My name is Ramson Thomson the owner of 2 bedroom flat, I want you to know that it was due to my transfer that makes me, my Wife and Son to leave the house and also want to give it out for rent and looking for
a responsible person that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money for the rent but want it to be clean at the time and the lucky Tenant that will rent it should take it as if it were its own.. So for now, We are here in West Africa (Nigeria) in our new house and we put all our worries off concerning the maintenance of the apartment, since We are not residing there for now.We left some Facilities and electronics which include the rent,and a DVD player,air conditioning, alarm system. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils,a refrigerator-freezer, four-hob and oven, microwave,dishwasher and washing machine, My Computer Connected with Internet Access Also the keys to the House are right here with us, and the lease document. Which we will send to you after all necessary
agreement has be accepted. Also We want you to know that the rent charges is not really the issue ,but your absolute maintenance of our apartment is most important thing, so you have to get back to us with the Application form below
FILL IN THE RENT APPLICATION FORM
1)Full Name
2)Full Address & Phone Number
3)How old are you?
4)Are you married?
5)How many people will be living in the house?
6)Do you have pet?
7)Do you have car?
8)Occupation?
9)When do you want to move in?
10How long do you want to stay in my apartment?

One Mr Grid called me about the apartment,I told him that I can't give him the apartment because he loves smoking,drinking and don't want him to get drunked and damaged my property one day. So If you are
still interested, Note that the rent is going to be £400 including utilities and No extra fees.
Await your urgent reply so that we can discuss on how to get the document and the keys of the house to you.
Thanks
Thomson

sounds geniune
Mr ramson could of said he was in france and it be more belvieable then.
Scammers would never say they are from nigeria or somewhere like that because they no we are on to them.
So go for it tom im sure they dont want your details for a passport do they.
Also ask for a tenancy agreement to be faxed to you.

:lol::lol::lol: Lmao defo sounds like hes trying to have your pants down.. :spanking:


:rofl:


lmao. gooood afternooon maddam. I wouldnt even entertain that Tom. its almost as dodgy as a western union bank transfer.

Was looking to get a dog a few months ago and saw one that said it was quite local so sent him an email and he sent me one back saying the dog is free but was in scotland and he was taking it to a courier to send to me but needed the delivery fee sending to the "western union in nigeria" with in the hour, he even added the words "rush to the bank now" straight away i knew he was trying to have my pants down so i sent him another email with just two words in, the first started with "F" the other was "OFF" i never heard from him again for some reason.. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

Yes a mate of mine want a dog and there was one going but it was in canada.
They said the dog will be in uk in next 24hrs and will arrive to you buy courier.
He went along with it until i pointed out a dog needs to be in quarateen when they land in the uk.
The scammer asked for courier charge to be forwarded to him and then the dog would be delivered
