I've told you before but another warning can't hurt. Fraudsters are active on all housing platforms in Switzerland. Also on my pages. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that all offers are genuine. I do my best to blacklist any i catch but I also want to show you how to recognise fake ads.
Location, location, location Be smart, if the price seems very low, be suspicious! If you’re new to Zurich compare this offer to others. Of course there are still some truly cheap and wonderful flats in Zurich. But just be aware! And check the address to make sure that it actually exists.
«Unfortunately, i live abroad…» Often a sure sign for a fraud, be suspicious and never, ever hand over money before you seen the flat and received an official contract.
Pictures Fake ads often just show photos from the inside. Just do a reverse picture search on Google to see if the displayed images were already used for other flats.
Air bnb Currently, many fraudster use Airbnb. Scenario A: They rent a flat via Airbnb and pretend that it‘s their own. Tricky to find that out. Just make sure you don’t transfer money to a personal account. Scenario B: They pretend that the deal is through Airbnb but they sent you to a fake website. In either case, if it feels weird – back off!
Tell me If you discover a fake ad on my page, let me know. Either send me an email to [email protected] and I’ll help you asap. Or let me know via the Spam-Button (see picture below), and i’ll have a closer look.

Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
