Hi Ofer

I guess this is the apartment in the 'Santa Barbara' development in Limassol?

You'll need to check with your bank as to whether there any problems transferring money to Russia.

But I would strongly urge you to appoint a lawyer in Cyprus in Cyprus to look after your interests. It may be that this is a scam - you need a lawyer to thoroughly check it out out.

The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office publishes a list of English-speaking lawyers that you can find by clicking here.

My personal recommendation is the firm of L.G. Zambartas (the last one on the above list). You can find their contact details by clicking here.
