A young man searching for a place to rent in Sydney has been trolled by Aussies after including ‘posed up’ photos in a Facebook ad. 

The 23-year-old moved from Dubai and shared photos of himself to a number of groups seeking somewhere to live. 

In one of the photos he’s seen posing in front of the Sydney Opera House and in another he’s standing shirtless on a beach showing off his toned physique. 

The man described himself as ‘very outgoing, respectful and tidy’ and has a high budget of $600 per week for a studio or private room.
