Some crooks just tried scamming me. They promised the most gorgeous apartment in Manhattan but refused to show the place to my friend unless I wired them some money. Almost fell for it as the ad was so promising, the place was gorgeous, free pick up when I land and when I checked out the address, it was a real apartment building.
BEWARE OF SCAM on Apt Rentals
My friend who lives in the city googled the building and the picture on the website and the model apartment is the one the crooks used to put on their ad. Just a warning, please be careful and do not be tempted, they will be so nice when they reply to your request. Most of them really know the city well so they may have some people working with them in NY or they just do a thorough search about NY so they will sound like they are legit.
IF THEY DO NOT TO AGREE TO SHOW THE APARTMENT BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO RENT IT, DO NOT TRUST THEM. THEY ARE SCAM! if they do not have paypal, they are scam!
BE VERY CAREFUL !!! GOOD LUCK !!!
