It's good you checked here instead of with the "advertiser".
1) Address is not valid-no 1055 Bentoak Lane.
2) Price is way below market for almost any decent neighborhood in Silicon Valley.
3) Trust your gut-if it seemed too good to be true, it usually is.

The majority of listings on Trulia are scams. Be careful.

Does that include the 1056 Bentoak Ln. "property"? Anybody know if this is a scam too? Seems too good to be true

Thank you again, Robert:

Mr. Juarez also makes a very good point. According to the records of the County Recorder of Santa Clara County there is no 1055 Bentoak Lane.

There is a 1053 and a 1058 Bentoak Lane, but no 1055

This is definitely a scam.

Seems too cheap, Robert. Have you driven by the house? Have you posted the correct address? A Google search gives no results for the address you have given.

Yes

That is a rental scam. Bentoak Lane has Lynbrook High School, one of the top 100 high schools in The United States of America.

The advertised rent is a small fraction of the true fair market value rent and is designed to get desperate people to send their deposit money and prepaid rent money to the scammers who then disappear with your money.

to eliminate the scammers always make certain that every person that you are dealing with is licensed by The State of California Department of Real Estate.

I recommend that you flag that advertisement as fraud.

Thank you,
