A company that provides such services, is the accumulation of base addresses of owners willing to rent an apartment for a certain period of time. The information the company has the right to sell the customer. Having received the required list with numbers and addresses the client himself is conducting search operations and negotiates with the landlord on the hiring of apartments. This type of companies work on the scheme, which is often used by fraudsters.
