Many of the ads here are scams.

Before you reply to the ad:
1. Read carefully the ad. If the offer is way below the market price, and if the description of the neighborhood uses non specific terms (like "the city", "the supermarket", "the train station") rather than known and verified locations/sites, it is likely to be a scam.
2. Google a couple of sentences from the ad. They are likely to show you the same ad in other towns.
3. Search for the photos using Google and Tineye reverse image search.

If you think it is not a scam and communicate with the ad author:
1. beware if s/he tells you "I just left Paris/I am away on business" and asks you to wire money in order to get the keys. You'll lose your money and not get the place.
2. If all appears legit and you have to wire a deposit, never use Western Union and any other transfer than a known, legit, bank. Make sure the owner provides you with an IBAN (international identifier for bank-to-bank transfer) showing that s/he is in France: the IBAN has to start with "FR....".

Let's block ads! (Why?)
