Yes, there are many scams on here and this sounds like one of them. If it sounds too good to be true, it is! I just googled that address and saw it posted for rent on Zillow for $1900/mo.
NEVER EVER pay anyone up front to go see a rental. NEVER sign a lease without ever seeing the property in person. Make sure the person is the real owner (ask for proof). You can look up property addresses in public records and see who the owner is.
