Yes, this sounds like a scam. Can you provide us with the complete property address so we can remove the listing as soon as possible? You can post the address in advice or contact me via my Zillow profile.

99% of the time it is a scam and you should run not walk away. You will put your personal information at risk, lose any deposit money you give them and have no way to get it back from the out of country scam artist.

There is information here on avoiding scams on Zillow. You can alos help others by posting the email address of the scammer and the address of the property. Also, if you flag the listing page, Zillow will remove the scam ad.
