Hi Consie. Congtulations on a successful move!
I am not a paranoid person, but maybe cautious, but I would think that
this is a red flag, too. You could outright ask her why the image from

retrieve it from the website, and just wants in an email, and her choice
of words is misleading.
Best Wishes for enjoyment of your new area.
