I just got this and given the wording strongly suspect it is a scam. Being extra cautious is also a good idea following the recent ProZ security alert. I'd advise people to treat this with caution. Need I say I don't have any "space" to rent...

Dear Sandra,

I work at the high end fashion label Roksanda Ilincic in London; we are
currently stocked in Galeries Lafayette, Selfridges, Liberty and Harvey
Nichols. We come to Paris for fashion week and PRE collections to show our
collections. Please find more information about us at our website:

We are currently looking for a new space come February, where we will be
wanting to show our collections as well as share the space with a fellow
leading international designer from London, who shows both Womens and Men's

We do not have a fixed budget at this stage as we want to find the right
space first. If you were also available to send through some images of your
space, that would be fantastic.

We think that it is a beautiful space and are very interested in coming to
see the space. My colleague will be over tomorrow, so do let me know when
would suit you best for them to pop in.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need any further
information, or if more suitable I will call to find out more information.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Gaby Brewer
Press Liaison

spam is not a scam Nov 28, 2012

Nobody offers you anything so it isn't an ad, nobody asks you for translation services so it isn't a scam, it's just either a spam or a misdirected scam. Do you have a space to rent for them in a very attractive place? If not forget it - there will no business.
Life is too short for such things...
