My new landlord wants me to send him $500 security deposit Western Union. We've communicated by email only. He'll send me the rental key and rental packet when he get's the money. Is this typical? ...

How can I protect myself?

Dont do it, its a scam. If you cannot get someone to physically open the door to the place you want to rent, and they want money wired to them you are going to wind up $500 poorer and nothing to show for it. Let me guess, Craigslist?

Same here. He says he lives in Africa and wants me to send $400 deposit to secure the rent. How did it go with you? Did you research any about the situation?
