However, pleas rest assured that Trulia is not part of any scam conspiracy. You may want to do a little research on them before making such glaring accusations. Here's their stock trading ticker symbol TRLA.
Also, as others have mentioned, you may want to consider using a RE professional to help you locate a suitable and realistic rental. It seems as though you are being lulled into unrealistic rental opportunities which is exactly how folks get stung. If it sounds to good to be true run the other way. A good RE pro would not lead you down that path.
This is all I can do to safeguard unsuspecting tenants looking for rentals. Trulia has no way of knowing who's the scammer & who isn't & it's too time consuming for them to scour through every new rental listing that is uploaded to see which one might be real & which one might be the scammer.
