Here’s a message I got on AIRBNB to host that has scam written all over it:

Hello
I hope this email reaches you well! My name is (website hidden) and I am visiting Toronto on vacation and business. This is my first time in Toronto and so far I love everything this city has to offer.

Your apartment is very intriguing it is clear that you take great pride in providing a comforting and stylish environment with a premier location. In addition, your knowledge of Toronto is invaluable, a true asset.

I was hoping to request the room for booking starting Friday, August 28, 2014 until September 13, 2014.

Best,
