    LOL.. while we are speaking, reddbod's indicating thread has been removed but another ghost comes up again...

    A superb 2 bed 2 bath apartment, with excellent transport links

    I m not sure if the scammers are also reading this, as it looks like their ad have been more "brilliant". at least there's no fireplace in Wanchai this time!

    I haven't found any flat in other countries before, but key is not available in town and ask for ur personal info and $ is definitely a NO NO in HK! haha...

    Alrite... i hv replied to those scam ad before... sigh..

    Tamara de Kerros - still at large

    Same for me...! This scam by Tamara de Kerros is still filling inboxes everywhere. Such a shame that a few ruin it for all!

    So beware expats, craigslist is a hotbed of scams and deceptions.

    You will not get a 2 bed 2 bath flat in Wan Chai for HKD7500 - NO WAY!

    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 and myself. I am a Swiss citizen, i inherited the flat from my late father, as being is his child. He was actually residing there only, until his death. Which is why i am offering the flat for lease. I am residing here in Madrid, Spain with my fiance. Who i am about getting married to in less than two months, and presently working at the Hospital Universitario La Paz here in Madrid.

    The flat is up for a total of 7000HKD per month. 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, and ideal for family, couple and friends. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils

    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. Also i will like you to know that the rent charges is not really an issue here , 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.

    Address: 141-147 Johnston Road, Flat E, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. And please note, Monthly Rental is only inclusive of management fee and government rate. The minimum lease term is 2 months, and a maximum of 2 years with a possibility of extension

    Kind Regards,
    Tamara.

    "Her" response when I insisted on seeing the apartment:

    Thanks so much for your warm response.

    Actually, i can understand your point regarding the viewing of the flat and meeting. But unfortunately, that would not be possible for now. As i am so much committed to my work and our wedding preparation for now. And there is no one over there with the keys, as i have all the keys here with me, like i told you earlier.

    I would suggest for now, you visit the building and neighborhood to determine your interest . So as to have an idea of the living situation around there. As i do know your worries and reservations at this point. Though you can understand, i was suppose to lock up the flat since there was no one presently occupying the flat after the death of my Father. And moreover, i never had any intention of renting out the flat. It was my fiance who recently advise i should lease out the flat. Just for someone to occupy the place, and take up the maintenance. And often send me feed backs regarding the state of the flat, just to put off my worries.

    Let me know what to you feel. So we could start up with the renting process, if you are still keen taking up the lease. As for the keys, like i said earlier. I am willing to post that to you as soon as we both reach a mutual agreement.

    Cheers,
    Tamara
