Rentals are a premium product now. No need to respond to off key inquiries.
I had someone call me about an expired listing...seemed odd. I talked with the sheriffs office - they said that the current scam is to find 'vacant' properties and then 'take a deposit' on them.....
The first rule of thumb is this. Your intuition is probably correct and you should pay attention. Next be very careful when renting a property from any of these web sites. You have the address go drive by see what's up, look for a sign and call.

Trulia is just a 'whiteboard' for posting the rental listings kind of like Craigslist. They have no way to scrutinize or verify who is posting properties for rent. You seem to have a good sense about this posting. Sometimes that is the best deterent to getting caught up in a scam where you could lose money in the process or worse. If it does not feel right you are better off letting it go. Please know not to send money in advance of getting to know who you are dealing with and feel comfortable about the transaction after doing your research on them and the property. Good success to you in finding the 'right' place. Of course you know it is better to own than to rent in most situations. See my blog here - http://j.mp/JFzjYI
