How do I report a Scam found on Zillow?

I've been in contact with the "so-called landlord" of 4560 Voyageur, Erie, PA.  It is listed as a rental property. After reading the email a red flag went up so I made a few calls... This property was confirmed a scam by Howard Hannah (real estate agency) in Erie, PA.  The house is listed for sale through their office and is NOT available for rent.  The poster of this house is also using the interior photos of the house for different houses on Craigslist that are supposedly for rent but are not legit.

Glad you were able to nip this in the bud!  Our MLS has made it harder to "steal" photos from their site because of scams like this and others.

When I first passed my licensing exam, I got a solicitation e-mail from them.  Glad to know my initial impression was confirmed.
