I'm in charge of a holiday rental apartment and I've received an awful lot of enquiries from scammers as they are very active in the holiday rental department. I've destroyed most of these enquiries, but saved some : if any of you is interested in baiting them, here are infos and e-mail adresses. If you need details on the holiday rental business (leases, websites advertising properties, etc.), please PM me or answer below.

Some of them are witing in French (most probably Ivory Coast lads), but I know some of you are and/or speak French...

Greetings!
I am planning to visit XXXX from Friday, November 28th to Monday, December 8th with one friend. We already have plane tickets to fly there on those dates. We have not made any final arrangements for our trip and found you studio on craigslist. We are also considering spending either our first or second weekend in another area, but are interested in staying in your studio for one week regardless. Do you still have availability for that week? I look forward to hearing from you at your soonest convenience. Thank you for your time.
