Some people have already hinted at this, but for good measure I would like to add that you should always check rental laws where you are, because in many cases landlords CANNOT withhold tenants' deposits upon move-out without serious, documented reasons. In California, landlords have a whole set of hoops they need to jump through to retain a deposit. That doesn't mean there are those who won't try to trick you into giving them "free" money though.
