Remember you are sending your personal information to criminals.
Here is the "Kuhscheiße" he is sending his intended victims:
I just read your e-mail regarding my apartment for rent.
I bought this apartment for my daughter during her studies in Germany, but now she's back home permanently, so I'm renting the place for unlimited time.
Before we go any further I would like to know how many persons you intend to share the flat with, and for how long.
The flat is fully furnished and renovated, exactly like in the photos. Also, very important, the utilities (cold/hot water, electricity, wireless broadband Internet, digital TV, 2 parking spots in garage, air conditioning, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, etc.) are included in the price of 550 EUR/month. The kaution is also EUR 550,00, and you get it back, when you decide to leave the apartment (you will have to give me at least 30 days notice). As for me, you can rest assured that I will never ask you to leave the apartment.
You can use my furniture, or you can also use your own if you prefer. If you decide to use yours, you will have access to a large and well ventilated cellar, where you can store my furniture.
Now, a little bit about myself: My name is Peter Grant and I'm a 58 years old graphic designer from Oxford, planning to retire in the next 2 years.
I have a lovely wife, Christine and a 25 year old daughter, Linda. I am very proud to say that soon I'm going to be a grandfather :).
Another member of our family is an 6 year old Labrador which we all love, so, I won't mind if you will keep pets.
The only inconvenience is that my job doesn't allow me to leave Oxford even for one single day. We just hired some new staff and I'm in charge of their training.
But this won't affect you at all. I can make arrangements to rent the apartment from Oxford (on my expense of course).
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
All the best from Britain!

Thank you for your reply.
After analyzing all the applications together with my wife we decided that you would be suitable to rent the apartment.
As I said, the total price which you'll have to pay for one month of rent (warm miete) will be €550, no additional costs.
The rent will be paid monthly, directly to my British bank account.
In order to view the flat and settle a deal, you will need the keys, and the contract .
Since I am unable to come to Germany personally, and my daughter is already back here, I've hired a major real estate agency from Oxford, specialized in international rentals, to represent me.
They are called EZ Rentals Europe Ltd, and their website is: http://www.ezrentals.24.eu/
This agency will handle the delivery of the keys, the inspection of the flat and also the payment .
Here's how it works :
1 - To start this transaction, I need your full name, address and telephone number. I will also need to know the rental period so I can put it in the contract.
2 - I will go to the EZ Rentals office to drop off the keys and documents of the house, along with the contract
3 - EZ Rentals will check the documents to make sure I am the actual owner of the flat, then, they will send you an invoice (rechnung).
4 - At this point you'll have to pay the kaution (550 EURO) as a security deposit to EZ Rentals, according to the instructions from the invoice.
This will be a guarantee that they don't send an agent all the way to Germany for a joke. The deposit will be just a formality, and it will not commit you to renting the flat.
The money will remain in the custody of EZ Rentals until you have checked the flat and confirmed that everything is ok.
5 - After you pay the deposit, and send them the details, EZ Rentals will send an agent to Germany in the next 24-48 hours (Monday to Friday) to meet you and help you inspect the flat. .
You can also decide which date and time will fit your schedule best for the inspection.
7 - If you will be satisfied with the flat, you will sign a copy of the contract and pay the first month of rent to the agent. (the following rents will be paid directly to my account)
However, if you are not pleased with the apartment for any reason, the EZ Rentals agent will give you the money back on the spot, and I will get my keys and documents back.
I will pay for the services of the agency, so there will be no extra costs for you.
Also, in case you have another apartment right now, and you cannot move out immediately, we can make the deal as I explained it now, and consider it only an inspection and reservation. You will move in when you are ready and pay the first rent then.
If you want to begin, please give me the details which I requested above, so I can make the arrangements.
I have attached a copy of my passport to this email as a sign of good faith.
I am waiting for your quick response, because there are several others interested in the apartment, and I need to know if I can count on a deal with you.

EZ Rentals specialises in providing Letting and Management Services for high quality residential houses and flats.
We eliminate risks associated with Internet transactions by acting as a licensed, neutral, third party.
A normal rental agreement using EZ Rentals Ltd will contain:
• length of the agreement
• rent amount
• amount of additional costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.)
• term of notice
• amount of deposit
• in the case of furnished rooms, an inventory of all items (checked in the presence of our agent whether all the items are in good order. If damaged, you will have a documented in writing with all damages , so that you don't have to pay for the damage when you move out)
• the general house rules (which also define the repairs that the landlord is responsible for and those which you have to pay for).
Once the contact is signed both parties are legally bound by it. Before signing, it is therefore essential to carefully read and understand the document even though they are usually long and difficult to read.
Most landlords ask for a deposit which is refunded when you move out, along with interest earned . However, if damage has occurred to the accommodation the landlord is allowed to withhold the sum required to repair it from the deposit.
The deposit can legally go up to three months basic rent plus 16% VAT. However, many landlords only require a deposit equivalent to 1 or 2 months of rent. The landlord must ensure that you receive the current rate of interest for the whole rental period.
Rent & Communal charges
Rent, is the amount paid to the landlord every month.
Additional costs depend on the apartment and its location and are individually detailed in the contract. Additional costs such as heating, gas, water and electricity costs are usually dependent on personal usage and are paid monthly at a predetermined fixed rate. Meters are read yearly and you are refunded by or pay extra depending on what you have used.
Other additional costs (such as garbage disposal, street and house cleaning) depend on the size of the apartment. In some cases, especially in old apartments, this can also apply to some of the individual costs stated above. For example, if a house doesn't have individual measurement of heating for each apartment, then the total cost is split between the apartments according to their relative size.
Most landlords expect rent to be paid by automatic bank transfer or standing order; this is usually specified in the contract.
Rules & regulations
House care taker: In houses with a number of tenants, there is often a house caretaker and manager. The caretaker and manager are responsible for keeping everything running and organizing repairs.
Winter Service and Street Sweeping: If there is no caretaker then residents are legally obliged to remove snow and ice from in front of their house during winter. This is generally stated in the rent contract. If tenants are responsible for removing snow and ice then they are liable for all injuries incurred if they fail to meet their obligations. In some regions the streets also have to be swept once a week.
House Pets: Whether or not pets may be kept in an apartment must be discussed with the landlord and should form part of your rent agreement. If a tenant wants to have a pet in the flat where they already live then the rent contract or the landlord should be consulted to see if this is allowed. House pets are dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, etc.
There are certain periods of notice valid for rental agreements. This period applies if either you or the landlord wish to terminate the rental agreement. However, the landlord cannot cancel the rent contract without a reason.
The legal period of notice on open-ended rent contracts is three months.

3. EZ Rentals will make a detailled inspection of the property's documents in order to certify ownership. If ownership is confirmed, EZ Rentals will accept the initiated transaction. However, if ownership is not confirmed, EZ Rentals will decline the initiated transaction and notify the Tenant to stop all communication with the other party.
4. EZ Rentals will send a written confirmation to the Tenant certifying that the Landlord is the legal Owner of the property to be rented. EZ Rentals will hold the keys, the copies of ownership documents, the copies of Owner IDs and a normal, standard rental contract signed by the Owner.
