    Hi everyone,

    Im currently moving house, and have been looking for new accommodation online,
    I found a Lovely place for very little money... The phone number provided was not in use, so i send an [email protected]

    The seller replied saying that its his past mothers house, and he lives in the UK (i live in Ireland)
    and that he wants two months rent in advance..... Haha, i dont even get to see the apartment before i rent it!!
    I also recieved an email from the website that lists all the houses, They said that it may be a scam...
    .....I think they are right..
    He wants the transaction to go through E.brokers.com

    Is there anything i can do to stop him doing this to someone else??

    Regards
    Neb.

    I don't know about the UK, but over here we have the Better Business Bureau that you can file a complaint with.

    Is there any such organization there?
