    I've just seen something similar on Gumtree though the address is not metioned there until you send the user and email. I did so and got the same email back as flc_r except from a Patricia Sadler. Must be Louise sister.
    I've reported the ad as fraudulent.

    OH MY GOODNESS

    I have the exact same e-mail, but it reads:
    Good to read from you on your interest on my apartment, which i am leasing out for rent

    The apartment is still very much available for rent. Just to give you a little low down about the apartment. MY Late father resided in the apartment, whom i inherited the apartment from as being his only child. I am a French citizen by birth. I am presently residing in the united state of America. Due to my new job offer, as an Air Hostess to Jet Blue Airways. And also i am about to get married to my fiance over here in less than three months from now.

    The flat is up for a total of 6500HKD per month including management fee and government rates. which i also think is fair enough considering the location. I just need someone with an open heart, love and clean to occupy the apartment and put all my worries off concerning the maintenance of the apartment for now.

    The flat comprises of two bedroom. Excellent condition inside. Good sized lounge, with a sofa, DVD player, stereo, and washing machine. Can sleep a max of 4. Ideal for family and friends. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils. These are some of the measurement of the apartment.Reception room 17'0" 16'0" ( 5.18m x 4.88m , Kitchen 13'0" x 11'0" ( 3.96m x 3.35m ), Bedroom 1 13'0"x 11'7" ( 3.96m x 3.53m ), Bedroom 2 12'10" x 10'5" ( 3.91m x 3.18m ), Bathroom 6'10" x 5'10" ( 2.08m x 1.78m ), Guest WC 5'0" x 2'10" ( 1.52m x 0.86m.Kitchen 13'0" x 11'0" ( 3.96m x 3.35m )

    Just to let you know, the keys are right here with me. But there wouldn't be any problem with that. As it can be posted to you, after all necessary agreement has be reached and signed into lease as advised by my lawyer over here in the state. Also i will like you to know that the rent charges is not really the issue , but your absolute maintenance of the apartment, because it is good to keep the property in good condition, just for the memories of my father. Who committed so much putting those facilities in place, so i wouldn't want an violation of my property if finally rented by you.

    The Apartment is situated at Cimbria Court, 24 Conduit Road, Flat 5A fifth floor, Mid-level West, Hong Kong. Around there are many supermarkets, bakeries,pharmacies, cafs, shops, and restaurants. And also there is also a mini bus stop in front of the building

    And please note the main utility bills are not inclusive in the rent, As you will have to personally settle the bills at your convenient time. which shouldn't be a problem if we later reach an agreement.And presently for now, there is no outstanding bills. So you would be starting the lease with a clean slate As you would be starting the lease with a clean slate

    The minimum lease term is two months, and a maximum of two year with a possibility of extension.

    Kind Regards,
    Anne-Sophie.

    I was checking out places on craiglist and I found one in Cimbria court for $7000. I sent an email requesting details and the reply is below:

    When reading this I was very excited to have found a decent place then my instincts start kicking in. This thing is too good to be true and the Ad on craiglist has been banned. So like any other skeptics, i start diggin in then i find this thread....GEEZ!! If it's too good to be true ...they pretty much are....

    Oh by the way she replied with this email address: [email protected]

    I just can't believe the length scammers would go these days.
