How do I know that landlord is legit? This landlord is saying that they are located overseas.

How can I trust that this is not a scam?  They are requesting that I email my personal information and they will contact me to see if I qualify to live in the rental.

If you future landlord says that they are overseas, it is 99% sure to be a scam. Any sane overseas landlord would have a property manager. Time to send your emails to your local DA and do not give them ANY personal information.

If a landlord was truly overseas, they would have a local management company that oversees their property.

Whenever the 'landlord' says they are overseas, cease communications with them and do NOT forward personal information like SS numbers, bank numbers, etc.

And DO flag the fraudulent listings on whatever site they are appearing.

The moment the words "landlord overseas" come into a conversation about a rental, run the other way.    If this is advertised on Zillow, please flag it so they can investigate.

This is a useful post by Zillow.
