I have similar yet not exactly the same situation right now. Guy claims to have nice app for rent in Amsterdam, but I cannot see it as he's currently (surprise, surprise) in UK (back in 15 months). However the solution he proposes is deviating from standard fraud: he wants to first sign a contract, then he'll send me keys to app, I can see the app and only if I decide to take it, he wants deposit.
It still smells like huge scam (deal is too good) but I wonder what's the trick (probably he's not owner of the flat)...is there any way to check ownership?
Anybody with similar experience?
