Caution: A number of con artists have been using this site to search for targets.  One of the main tactics is to ask for payment to be wired to an account and then deactivating their email address.  This is still a relatively rare occurrence but it has been happening recently enough to warrant this advisory note. 

The Editors of H-France advise you to use caution when interacting with prospective landlords overseas, even if they advertise on this site.  Most reputable landlords can provide references from previous tenants or accept payment through a more protected means such as Paypal.
