Untitled Classified Ads Scam on Other Classified Ads Site, #7531

I responded to a real estate add on Hotpads.com for an apartment rental. (The add seemed to have been duplicated on the site - listing differing rental fees). I answered the ad with the lower rental fee. Received several emails from the email address indicated above asking for a completed application with personal information. Requests to actually see the apartment were ignored and the party continued to press for the application information. I researched online and found an exact copy of the first \"letter\" they emailed to me on several posts of a website that reported scams. The names mentioned and local of residence were changed on most of the emails reported by others.
