Telephone number +34600886703 is being used as part of a Rental Scam by someone claiming to be "Ernest Watkins" and using the email address ernestwatkins2018@gmail.com. The telephone number is included in the following Rental Scam email that is being sent to victims:
I am afraid that we will NOT return to Canada anytime soon because we are retired and we moved to Spain in 2015. The apartment was bought for my son during his college in Canada. When he finished his studies he decided to study for Phd in Australia. I'm renting an apartment for the first time therefore a professional company will make the necessary arrangements for both us. I think it's much easier and convenient for both us.

In Canada it's your legal right to check the place and verify the documents before I will receive any funds. Therefore I want to use a global real estate company specialized in property management called Savills ( https://www.savills.com/ ). They are an online marketplace connecting landlords with tenants and also they provide the most secure payment platform worldwide. Savills just need my approval and your information so they can proceed with the transaction.
It's the first time for me doing a transaction like this so I want to follow the legal procedure.
Using Savills involves three parties: me as owner, you as a potential tenant and Savills as a responsible third party authorized to handle this transaction. Savills will handle everything. Savills works the same way as the escrow account on which you place the deposit when you rent an apartment, except that instead of a bank, we use Savills .
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE AMOUNT YOU WILL SEND TO SAVILLS IS A GUARANTEE DEPOSIT THAT YOU HAVE THE FUNDS AVAILABLE AND IT CAN NOT BE RELEASED WITHOUT YOUR APPROVAL. I CAN RECEIVE THE FUNDS JUST AFTER SAVILLS WILL RECEIVE A COPY OF THE LEASE AGREEMENT WITH YOUR SIGNATURE.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN THE PROCESS, so I can provide all the detailed steps of the transaction (I am sure that many of the questions you have now, will be answered after I will send you the steps). If you choose to continue, I will do my best to be as transparent as possible during the whole transaction.

We are now located in Spain so if you have any other questions you can reach me any time at: +34.600.886703 (if you are calling from Canada you need to dial 011-34.600.886703) or you can email me your number and I will give you a call.

Thank you and have a great day!

Regards,
Ernest
The email was sent from the email address "Ernest Watkins <ernestwatkins2018@gmail.com>".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.

The email was sent from the email address "Ernest Netkins <alernestnetkins50@gmail.com>".

The email is a example of a Rental Scam targeting individiuals looking for rental properties. The scammer will claim to have a property available for rent at a better than market price. They will claim to be unable to show the property due to having moved away and will usually offer to send the keys using some sort of Escrow service or ask for a deposit, again to be held in Escrow. They will often use the names of real companies in the rental and accomodation sectors such as AirBnB, Flipkey, Rightmove. Legitimate landlords will make arrangements for prospective tenants to be able to view their properties - if you can't physically see the inside of the property without having to pay money to someone then it is a definite scam.
