Ca. 50% of the ads in this section are scams: they are out to get you to send monies, get nothing in return and be unable to trace them and have them sued. This is a fact, and you should be quite careful (some ads are quite real, and even cheap by market value, but be sure to make the difference).

The text of these scams is usually the result of a cut-and-paste theft of real ads published here or elsewhere, with a much lower advertised rent so as to attract victims. Search for some of the characteristic phrases of their ad in Google and you'll be surprised to see the same ad all over the world.

Some ads are crafted by these scammers, but they don't know Paris and provide absurd details about closeness of sites which are actually at the opposite of the city: take a few minutes to check the "arrondissement" and any reference they give to landmarks. If they don't give any (to be on the safe side), and the ad looks bland and/or generic, it is also likely to be a scam. This, and their recognizable haphazard grammar, spelling and punctuation make it easier to identify with a higher degree of plausibility.

If the "owner" tells you s/he happens to be away from Paris, or "about to leave tonight unexpectedly", or any other such story, beware. They may even give you a phone number in the UK, usually starting with +44 70...: this is likely to be a redirect to the Benin or Nigeria (such redirect numbers are also available in the US). French phone numbers are safer.

If they ask you to wire money in order to see the place, ignore it.

If you are abroad and can't see the place - as is the case with many here - DON'T EVER wire a deposit to ANYTHING ELSE THAN A FRENCH BANK ACCOUNT: it is identified by an IBAN number starting with "FR", and can be traced to a real person by the police if need be. Any other means - including the infamous Western Union but also Paypal or any other "international" anonymous system - is likely to be a scam.
