Details of Scam Report
Found a single family home rental property on Trulia listed for $700/Month. Thought it was too good to be true but requested information through Trulia anyway.
Got an email response from replying to my request the next day. However, the rental listing on Trulia was gone and I noticed that the property was actually on sale on MLS, Trulia, Redfin, and other sites. This just made me more suspicious.
After I replied, got a follow up scam email asking me to fill out a rental application.
