Not sure how this person got my details, but offered me rental in an area I was looking for flats.
Claimed to be living in Switzerland, and using AirBnB to facilitate a rental which was priced too good to be true. Requested I send him personal details, and then someone from AirBnB would be in touch with me to take a deposit before i viewed the property.
Loads of red flags on this one, except it's well written in perfect english with perfect spelling. Don't be fooled!

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
