How safe is to book a stay in Paris

Jump to last reply

Hi everybody! I am trying to make reservations for four nights in Paris. I found an apartment I like, just that the rental staff want me to send a money order to secure the place. However, I do not feel safe doing this because this could mean fraud. I asked the person if they receive Pay pal or Credit cards, and she does not. This makes me a little unsecured. I would like your suggestions on this. Is this very normal in Paris, that you just send a money order to save a spot. The person who is trying to do the booing for me send me the address of the apartment we will be staying as a proof of the agreement. I feel this is not good enough for me to feel safe. What is your input on this? Thanks very much in advance.
