Advertencias importantes de seguridad:

     

En cualquier lugar del mundo hay estafadores; lamentablemente, también en Internet. Por ello es muy importante que tenga en cuenta los siguientes consejos de seguridad:

Fraude por fianza: Los arrendatarios nunca deberían transferir al arrendador fianzas o similares antes de la firma del contrato de alquiler.

Como persona interesada en el arrendamiento, en ningún caso debería aceptar fianzas u otros pagos anticipados antes del cierre de un contrato de alquiler.
Antes de la firma de un contrato de alquiler, visite el piso y cerciórese in situ del equipamiento del piso. Conozca al arrendador y/o a los coinquilinos antes de la firma del contrato.

  • Antes de la firma de un contrato de alquiler, visite siempre el objeto de contrato.
  • Transfiera las fianzas una vez se haya firmado el contrato de alquiler y solicite al arrendador el acuse de recibo.
  • Las visitas al objeto de contrato son, en principio, gratuitas. Nunca realice una transferencia al arrendador antes de la visita.
  • Nunca envíe dinero a desconocidos a través de un servicio de transferencia de fondos (por ejemplo, Western Union, MoneyGram o similares).

Fraude por cheque: Los arrendadores no deberían aceptar ningún pago por cheque.

Un cheque no representa ninguna garantía de pago; los bancos no pueden hacer efectivos aquellos cheques no cubiertos o robados.
Por esa razón, los arrendadores deberían mostrarse muy críticos y desconfiados ante historias “aventureras” de las personas interesadas en el alquiler y no aceptar pagos mediante cheque. En caso de que un interesado en el arrendamiento o un arrendatario le envíe un cheque y solicite posteriormente una devolución total o parcial del importe, proceda con mucha cautela. Si se da un caso de esta naturaleza, debe ponerse en contacto con su banco y no actúe precipitadamente ante la reclamación de devolución del importe. Reembolse el dinero una vez su banco haya confirmado que el cheque presentado se ha hecho efectivo. Atención: En caso de cheques extranjeros, el canje del cheque puede tardar varias semanas; es decir, un cheque presentado en su banco puede hacerse efectivo transcurridas semanas.

  • Acepte únicamente transferencias ya que éstas son (incluso dentro de la UE) más económicas, más rápidas y, sobre todo, más seguras que los pagos por cheque.

Por favor, »infórmenos sobre cualquier infracción o anuncio dudoso para que podamos reaccionar adecuadamente y proteger a todos los usuarios.

    I created my profile in wgzimmer.ch in order to get a flat shared in Lausanne, Switzerland. Yesterday I was so happy I got contacted by ZIYU CHEN, she told me to be a chinese lady, 26 years old, and she told me to live with a Swiss girl. The pictures of the room to share were really good, and the price was incredible. I confirmed my interest in the flat, and she asked me, in order to reserve the accommodation I should send her my passport scan and to pay in advance 1 month rental fee and 700 CHF as a refundable deposit. Sadly I got trapped, and I sent my passport scan, but now I realize it is a Fraud! I am so sad, but thanks God I didn’t pay any money! Her email address is Ziyu Chen Be careful!

    Hi!
    I suspect that the “Inserat 1477553”
    the woman asked me first if i,m in Munchen or not,and she told me that the WHOLE flat is free,
    then I told her that one friend of mine is living in Munchen and he wants to visit the flat and seconds later she told me that this is impossible because she is in England and the other room is not available for my friend,
    she pretends to me that I pay the rent and the deposit via transferece account only watching the flat with photos and google maps,
    please investigate if this offer is a scam,
    because I think so!!

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Angeles, I’ve been also fooled this month by this person Heuss Kelly Pfeiffe. I don’t understand if you managed to regain your money? maybe I can also recover my money somehow.. please answer me if you can.

  13. Rachel Says:

    Hello Angeles and Roxana. This man with the id passport c2853yv4n but named Heinz Kelly Meusburger also tried to fool me and rent me a flat on Friedrichstrasse in Berlin, but first I must have to do the payment of the first month and the deposit which alltogether was 900 euros, than i will get the keys-he says. He said he is in England and all he need is me to take care of his apartment. I didn’t do that thanks to Angeles who put his passport id here. Be carefull of that man! And good luck with taking back your money.
