The worst phishing scam we're seeing now involves Homes listed for sale, being used by con-artists to advertise as rental properties on Craigslist. Once contact is made, they ask for personal info in order to "run a credit check". The rental market is tight and that helps to drive their phishing scam. There is frustrating little that can be done to track these people. If you have the callers number, you could report it to the police. I hope they may have someone working on this. People looking for rentals on the internet should be sure to at least drive by the house to see if there is a real estate sign, or look up the address on this site, Zillow, and Realtor.com to see if it is a listing. Legitimate landlords and property management people will meet you at the property or in their place of business face to face.
