Is the person willing to show you the interior of the house and not just communicating saying they are out of town?
Is the person renting the property a licensed NY real estate agent or Realtor? Ask for credentials.
A real agent/person renting a house will not be in a hurry to receive personal and confidential information. They will show you the property and perhaps ask for a credit report.
