You then are told to fill out a background check (which gives ID thieves a ton of personal info) and wire them money for one month's rent and deposit. However, if you think "well, I'd never send money to someone I'd never met" you should also know there is a variant of the scam that involves people actually showing homes to you and collecting the money there and then.They'll even give you a set of keys (not that they'll work) and a signed agreement.
You just find the prominent "post to classifieds" link (it's at the upper-left corner of the main page), drill down to the appropriate category, and fill out the simple form.
Back in 2009 I wrote a detailed post on this scam, and it appears it is still going on.
In fact, it's more widespread than ever, and the reason is that it is very easy to pull off, and almost impossible to track down the scammer. You scour the Craigslist ads for a rental home and find one that is both beautiful and very, very affordable. You contact the address in the ad and are told that the owner had to leave the country (usually for something like missionary work) and needs money to cover the mortgage.
The scammer will tell you they bought the tickets but cannot use them due to a family emergency.
However, the tickets have been canceled and cost the scammer nothing. To avoid this, purchase tickets direct from the venue, from a legitimate site like Ticketmaster, or from trusted resources like Hotwire, Travelocity and so on.
