Fraud apartment to rent (Bristol)

Hello All, Please be careful if you see a loft studio apartment to rent where the owner lives out of the country, somewhere like Denmark. A friend of mine is looking for a place, and answered this ad in Bristol and it sounded too good to be true. She investigated by asking in a few Internet forums and this is what she found out.This is a scam - they ask you to send a photo of a bank transfer to prove you have the funds to pay a deposit and they somehow manage to steal your money in this way. The photo of the apartment in the advert looks lovely and it seems very cheap for a great place. This scam is happening all over Europe apparently.
Take care everyone!
Andrea
