Hello Parkergoddard, most likely if it is to good to be true it probably isn't true. An address can be verified with any licensed agent as to who you should be dealing with and their credentials.
Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.
You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest.
You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with less than first, last and security deposit of any rental with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.
