If you find a rental scam on Zillow, open the home details page, hover cursor over "edit" and chose "report problem with listing".  In the drop down menu you can chose "rental scam".

Here's a link to the Zillow FAQ on avoiding scams and internet fraud.   The one you describe is extremely common on every internet site, so renter beware.
