Thank goodness you did a little digging Christine is right this is a big scam on craigslist right now that no one seems to know how to fix. Basically they try to rent the house sight unseen and hope you give them the deposit and last month's rent without doing your homework.
I did have this home listed for sale not for rent. The craigslist listing is a scam and if you can find it you should report it as a scam if possible. This has been going on for many years on local listings and it is not just my listing but other agents listings. Always be careful when they say they are out of the country and never send them any money. Hope this helps. Christine
