    Well everyone, I have indeed been scammed

    I tried all day yesterday to reach this 'landlord' by mobile and they have either blocked me or bought a Pay-As-You-Go phone and done away with it. They've also stopped responding to my emails. My final contact from this person the day before was a very odd text suggesting we go out to dinner at a restaurant after the viewing and that they would pay - the bank thinks this was a way to make sure I attended the viewing so that they could potentially rob my house.

    I have been in touch with my bank's fraud team who are contacting the branch that the transfer was made to and opening a fraud investigation against that account, so that's something at least. I have also made a report to Active Fraud.

    There's no guarantee I'll get the money back but lesson learned I suppose. What awful people exist in this world.


      Check her out on the local authority website to see if she’s a registered landlord.


        im so sorry to hear this - hope you get the money back


          Really sorry to hear this, hope you get redress:

          I 'ates cheats...
          I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


            Thats awful, so sorry to hear this.


              Gutted for you, i do hope the banks and pull something out of the bag and get your cash back, good luck.
