Beware of criminals who may attempt to use this notice board (as they use other media) to perpetrate scams. Some scams involve seemingly genuine looking advertisements, but if you reply you get an email asking potential tenants to send money before even viewing the property.
I suggest that you do not part with any money until you have visited the property and you have a proper signed contract in your hands. This won't guarantee against fraud, but it will avoid some of the scammers.
If this happens to you please tell the police, and let me have the details of the advertisements so that I can delete them.
Another scam currently doing the rounds is to email you asking you to call back on a premium rate (eg 070) number - you get to pay to listen to a recorded message containing lots of waffle, and there's no real room or tenant on offer of course.
