Apex Properties - scam?

I recently advertised my property on Open Rent and was contacted by an agency called Apex Properties claiming that they had a potential tenant and that my property would be perfect. I met with the tenant and it did seem like he would be a very good fit. I got as far as signing a badly drawn up terms agreement before getting suspicious - their website apexpropertiesltd.com looks completely made up gibberish. The company registration address does not match up too and several things were just not right (I should say that this is my first property to rent so I now know better).

I would like to see what other landlords think of this (Apex Properties claim to have 5000 properties but I can’t find them on Google) and to warn others.
