I am not saying that this is a scam, but if you do call about this listing, be aware that there are a ton of rental scams out there.

Trulia has this posted on its listings: Avoid rental scams! Situations involving wire transfers or a landlord who is currently traveling and can't meet you in person can be rental red flags. If you think you've found a scam, please hit the "Report error" button above and tell us!
