How does Zillow decide if a landlord is worth to rent out a home?

In other words, how do i know my information is safe with the person im sending it to? They stated they are over seas and we have to communicate via email and phone. And the property keys will be mailed to me... HELP! Idk if its legit?!

Zillow has a number of hoops a landlord/property manager has to jump through to post a free listing, but many scammers still make it through the hoops.  This is why Zillow provides a link on the top of every rental listing providing their FAQ on scams and internet fraud.

Scam. Don't send any money. That has happened quite a bit here.You'll be out your money and nothing to show for it.

It is a SCAM, do not send money to anyone. If you choose to send money, you will not hear from them again. There are many people that have fallen victim to this scam.
