I received this reply after sending an email to the CLUG list. I've removed the link to what I would expect is malware or something similar. I thought I'd better notify the list to say someone who knows about this list is sending scam. Hopefully someone can do something about this?

Hello , 

Thank you for your interest in the property listed for rent. You were the second to reach out from the ad. The first prospective tenant no longer had to move because of his home situation. So we give the opportunity to you. We are currently prepared to lease with flexible terms and just completed all new renovations. We will work with you on move in date, lease length and security deposit. 

I understand that you need the exact address of the property but my husband does not want me divulge due to security reasons. We have had a string of break-ins, squatters and thefts at our other properties. We would like to avoid that with this property due to the renovations that have cost lots of money. You are going to be the first to move in with the renovations. That is why we want to confirm you have your latest report before we arrange a walk through. 

All utilities are priced into the lease along with garage parking spaces. The appliances in the kitchen and laundry room were just installed. You have the option to choose your paint color and flooring before your move in 

When you're ready for a personal appointment, then please go to the link below and grab your report. We recommend this site because all of our tenants used it and haven't had any problems. Just fill out the form and indicate that you want the report. We are not concerned with any negative report items, it's more of a formality to ensure you have rental history. You can get your report by CLICKING HERE 

Remember, print out the report and bring it to the tour.. Once you let me know that you have your report ready, then I can personally schedule a showing of the place. 

Thanks again,

Hi all, Sorry for an off topic matter but this relates to the Owncloud, Newcloud and other discussions about cloud storage. I've tried to set up Owncloud but it got too complicated with plugins. I've been waiting for someone to say how easy Newcloud is but haven't seen a response. I've noticed Diaspora could be used as a cloud for storing photos, music, contacts, emails, etcetera, but it doesn't encrypt the data, hence privacy concerns. I then came across Maidsafe, which does encrypt the data. It also seems that if I were to store my smart phone's data, photos, music, etcetera, on my computer, then I could get a distributed, encrypted backup of all that data using Maidsafe. Has anyone used Maidsafe or have comments about this strategy? Thanks in advance for any replies. John. -- linux mailing list linux at lists.samba.org
