Providing a passport copy when renting?? Help? (Kuala Lumpur)

Hi everyone!

I have been looking around for 3-months accommodation and I have been made an offer in Suasana Sentral Condo; but the person is now asking for a scanned copy of the first and last pages of my passport. Is this normal and is it safe to do so? I'm scared that this may end up with identity theft.... I could give him a copy of it if he's just after the basic information but I would really prefer to remove info that I think is private such as my passport number etc...

Please tell me what you think! Thank you!
