Thank you very much, you all just save me from being cheated.
I received an e-mail from SweetHoney <email@example.com> and another one from
Jue He <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
I can't believe that I almost believe them and take the deal. After I think about the case of rental scam, I google for the forum of scam and luckily I had found this.
The e-mail as follow:
Kindly locate a nearby Western Union agent closer to you and make the payment to Me (S .H . Hoon UK, ) and provide me with the Senders details, including the total amount , MTCN, preferably the scan copy of the western union receipt.
Aternatively my international bank details are stated bellow, but this might take several days before the money arrives in to my account,
BANK NAME : SANTANDER BANK
BANK ADDS : UNITED KINGDOM
Miss S.H. HOON
Endeavour to send the scan copy of the transfer payment receipt as well , i will be looking foward to read back from you asap.
Attached is the rental agreement as requested, read through and let me know if you have any question, upon satisfaction i will provide you with the payment details asap,
The signed agreement and the payment receipt with the copy of my NIRC will be required by the management, before you will granted ab access to the unit, alternatively , and to make this easier and avoid any sort of doubt or breach of trust, you can proceed by putting the rent and the deposit on the name of your friend or any close associate via western union money transfer payable to UK and provide me with the MTCN only for confirmation only online or by phone because without the other details there is no one eligible to pick up the money , upon confirmation of the availability of this fund then we can proceed to the viewing , and if every thing is ok, then you can go ahead and change the beneficiary name to my name, and provide me other sending details.
(NOTE, I DIDNT ASK YOU TO SEND ANY MONEY TO ME INITIALLY)
Let me know if i made my self clear with this .before i proceed with the agreement,
Revert to me asap.
Thank you for your kind interest in my unit, the master bed room is airconditioned and
I would have love to facilitate the viewing, but due to the fact that i am already in UK, for my new job , and the management will only allow you in to the unit only upon presenting on demand the signed copies of the rental agreement and the payment receipt that certify our mutual agreement with the rent and due to the past inconviniencies this have caused the potential residence of the City square in the past
Hence the management insist that all the rental agreement must have been concluded before detailing a potential tenant to come for viewing when the landlord is not around to conduct the viewing personally , the violator is subjected to a fine ,
If you will like to proceed with the rental contract agreement , kindly provide me with your full names and the intended move in date with the desired duration of the contract i will provide you with my IC and the proof of ownership that will guarantee the transaction ,
Kindly let me know if you have any question and how you intend to proceed asap.

And the second e-mail from Jue He email@example.com it sound:
Thanks for your mail, I'd love you to come and visit the flat but at the moment am not around, I had a trip to Newcastle yesterday as my mother informed me my fiance is ill (not feeling fine) so travel to Newcastle to check on his health.Though i have the keys and contract document with me here that is why i asked you to send me the details so that i can start the necessary preparation from our family Lawyer here in UK. My apartment has 2 rooms and a living room,so i use one room while other is for rent and there is also a visitor room in the apartment,which I used as guest room.I have scanned the pictures of my apartment and you should find them below; the living room,bathroom and toilet that is in the rooms that I have for rent and would be for your private use and also pictures of the Kitchen where we deal with our stomach...!!!:)
The rent for the apartment is 900$ while you would also make a security deposit of 700$. This deposit would be refunded to you at the end of your stay in the apartment if nothing is destroyed during your stay. Before we proceed though,there are some conditions and rules and I would like us to decide on and it just requires your consent and afterwards we can proceed with the contract and for you to reserve the room and to move in soon:
1.You shall sign a document ( Tenement Agreement Document) confirming that the room has been reserved for you and thereafter you can then make your payment for the reservation and also for your immediate move in following the contract.
2.You shall have to read the agreement contract which i shall send to you firstly as an attached mail before you make your payment.
For the document to be prepared successfully, I would be needing the following details:

(4) Your scanned ID passport for identification..
I hope you quite understand me and everything?
There is also a washer and dryer in the apartment for the laundry needs and also to the apartment has a car park....Infact,it has being allotted two car spaces.
I wait to read from you soonest to continue the contract and further details about the documents towards having you as my room mate.
Thanks for your mail, I can reserve the room for you until the day of your move in which is July but only if you show me how serious you need the room. I have other offer who is also interested in the room but I think we will be a perfect match (flatmate) and I would love to give the room to you. My apartment is a Two bedroom apartment located on 55 Victoria St, Singapore 188000 to be precise and I am looking for tenants for one of the rooms in the apartment. The apartment belongs to my Mother although she got it from my father after the demise of my Father last year.
The apartment is fully furnished and also the rooms am renting out so you might not need to come with any other furniture but if you intend coming with any stuff, let me know alright?... The apartment has a heating system, water, parking space, security, Electricity, Gas, Phone, Internet Connectivity (Broadband), You would have free and unlimited access to the kitchen, the store room, the guest room, and all areas and part of the house except my room of course... You are also entitled to your own visitors.
The two rooms has the same amenities and are of the same size. The rent for the apartment and also the cost of the utility bills is 900$. Once again, this includes the cost of the utilities as earlier mentioned. The apartment is centrally located and is just some minutes walk to the nearest bus station and also you would have easy and fast access to other locations.
You would also be required to pay a security deposit as is the custom, the security deposit would be refunded to you at the end of your stay in the apartment if nothing is destroyed by you during your stay in the apartment. The deposit is 700$. About Me: My Name is Jue He I am a 25 year old Female. I am the only child of my parents and I live alone in this apartment.This apartment used to be my family apartment till when my Dad moved us all to London where he eventually passed away but I alone stay here in the apartment and have being renting it out for sometime now. My last flatmate left for France last week hence my search for new flatmates.
I am calm and laid back person and my hobbies are reading, swimming and also at times on fridays/weekend, I attend social events but I have not being having the opportunity dues to my work to hang out with my friends. I work as a marketing officer and when I am free I go to the pool to relax my mind and also unwind. I also visit the gym to keep fit at times..
Let me also know more about you because I believe it is essential that we get to know each other before we become flatmates. I shall be glad to send you pictures and also the contract so that we can conclude and be good flatmates.
I await to read your response.
Note: Both of these sucks attached very nice pictures for the interior of the condo. The SweetHoney even e-mail me a copy of property title under her name, a copy of property tax pay to singapore inland revenue authority which under her name and also a copy of Singapore NRIC. (These are for proof of ownership which probably fake) Everything make you feel that, it's real. I'm not sure whether have to make a police report since I had e-mail my copy of NRIC to him/her.
