I was looking for a room to rent using craigslist and the listings would say they did NOT respond to emails via Craigslist, you HAD to go over to roomster and chat with them there. Of course, over at roomster you had to PAY for a subscription in order to be able to message someone or read their message to you. There are one or two legitimate listings, but by far MOST are phony listings designed to get you to the site. The photos of the people are also clearly not real. The big-boobed 20-year old posing on the beach is not the person that is trying to rent you a roomif there even IS a real room behind this fake facade!! All the room photos show beautifully decorated rooms. NOT real. Then this morning an ad for an iPhone shows up as having a room for rent. WTF? Roomster's algorithm probably just grabbed an ad from Craigslist that it thought was a room for rent?
I don't know, this whole site is shady. Everything about this site screams of being fake and a scam in order to get your subscription money.
