The correct one is below:<br/>----------<br/>REDUCED!! RECENTLY UPDATED 4 BEDROOM, 2 FULL BATH HOME IN 4-STAR SCHOOL DISTRICT WITH LARGE OPEN LIVING SPACE AND LAMINATE WOOD FLOORS.

However, for some reason the map and homes listed aren't lined up correctly. For example, 919 Broadway is at the cross section of Burthe &amp; Broadway not Maple &amp; Broadway. Errors like this make the site almost impossible to navigate. I hope someone can fix this!

How can I get him caught? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-being-scammed-by-a-zillow-property-manager-How-can-I-get-him-caught/391390/ I used the "contact property manager" form on a rental listing I came across in Metairie, LA and received this e-mail back:<br/><br/>"Hello, Thanks for the email. Yes the House is still available and will only be given out to the right person that will take very good care of the place and the facilities. I have really decided to give out the house as a result of my transfer to London (UK).<br/>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I will be giving out the house for $800 with&nbsp; a security deposit of $900.I need to inform you as well that money is not the major reason why I am renting it out but want someone who can take care of it as if he/she owns it. So let me know as soon as possible if you can take good care of it, so that we can discuss the rent further. Pets are allowed. Section 8 is accepted.<br/>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; If you are interested you can go by and view it but you will not be able to go inside cause the keys are here with me in London ."<br/><br/>We instantly knew it was fishy, but went by and looked at the house regardless. We contacted the number listed on the For Rent sign and were informed that the house was actually $1200 a month and the zillow listing was a scam. Somebody is finding houses on other real estate websites, posting them on zillow for a lower price, and then scamming people into paying a "security deposit" in exchange for keys that never come. People have actually been paying this dude the $900 security deposit....<br/><br/>I'm still stringing him along in hopes of getting him caught - I have his fake identity, e-mail, and IP addresses saved. What else can I do? And how is this not completely obvious to zillow staff?<br \><br \>5 replies Fri, 18 Mar 2011 23:23:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-being-scammed-by-a-zillow-property-manager-How-can-I-get-him-caught/391390/ 2011-03-18T23:23:00Z My home is listed on Zillow but it is showing up on the map as the house next door. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-home-is-listed-on-Zillow-but-it-is-showing-up-on-the-map-as-the-house-next-door/401134/ My home is 203 Belleview Dr, Baton Rouge, LA 70806 listed for $142k but on the map it shows up as the house next door with a Zestimate of $107k.
