Private accommodation can sometimes involve scams. Beware of attractive properties with (too) attractive rents, usually below market prices. Do not send money when in doubt, and beware of emergency situations where prospective tenants are pressured to pay quickly.

Never provide your RIB, bank statement, etc.
