I thought I'd ask here because a lot of assembler members are much more experienced and wiser than I
Ok so I'm desperately trying to find somewhere to live in London for my uni, I've been loooking on gumtree for flatshares and the like.
Sent off loads of emails and things and only got a single reply from someone claiming to be a woman who lives in a flat and has two spare rooms. Fair enough seemed ok.
Then she sends me some form to complete to see if I was elligible for one of the rooms whioch looked like it had been written by a five year old but i filled it out nonetheless.
This morning she emailed me saying that the council had approved my form, which is odd considering i only emailed it to her at about 11pm last night.
She is now asking to send her the deposit via western union, the address for the western union transfer is in brighton and like I've never seen this palce aside from the pictues I've been sent, £780 is a lot of money to trust soemone with when I've never even seen the place even if it is like really cheap for a deposit. So basically does it all sound a bit too good to be true and incredibly dodgy because frankly something isn't right here. If so what on earth should I do?
