hi, my friend and i moved to Amsterdam about two months ago and we dealt with the same situation, there are so many frauds and scams here.
basically if they ask for you to send them any money (via western union or any other form) before you even view the house, then its a no go!!
Majority of them say they are in the U.K and tell you their sad life stories (cue worlds smallest violin) of how they , or someone in their family is sick. Then when you try to ring them the connection is poor quality or brakes out often.
There are THOUSANDS of them here so watch out!
Mainly i just want to stress that if they want money before you have even met them/viewed the house then its pretty much gonna be a garanteed scam!
hope that hellps
