You can also work with an agent, if it is a legit rental they may be working with an agent and they can do the leg work for you so you don't get involved in a scam.

THERE ARE QUITE A FEW SCAMS CURRENTLY ON THESE WEBSITES IF IT SEEMS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS .ONCE YOU CONTACT ME WITH THE ACTUAL INFO I CAN CROSS REFERENCE IT WITH THE REGISTERED HOMEOWNER AND LET YOU KNOW IF IT IS A LEGITIMATE RENTAL YOU CAN THEN USE THE AGENT OF YOUR CHOICE TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTION
