Dear future students!

If you are searching for a room on the private market, please be aware of scammers!

On certain websites, scammers are offering flats/rooms to students. They ask you to pay a security deposit as well as 1-2 monthly rents. They say that they will send you the key to the flat/room via post because apparently they are not living in Kiel.

Do NOT transfer money BEFORE you have received the key, met the landlord or signed a contract. These people are scammers, you will most likely never see the money again!
