Scamming Website

DENVER, COLORADO -- On any day, if you check Denver Craigslist, you will find 100s of posting with really awesome pictures and deals. If you leave a number, only answer you will get is a link which diverts you to the Roomster website. I registered for a 15-day trial and looked into 100s of ads on their website. Wrote so many emails. I never received a single reply on any of the ads listed. Overall satisfaction: NONE. Think before you spend money with these scamming websites.

AIKEN -- Watch carefully and read the small print. They advertise a three-day trial but it is really a way to get you to sign up for a recurring subscription for 30 monthly. Beware! I couldn't recover my money and never got one decent roommate inquiry.

BOCA, FLORIDA -- I found an ad on Craigslist that seemed like a good deal so I then contacted the lister who sent me a text saying to first sign up on this site and then they would call me to set up appointment. So reluctantly I did and viewed the other listings as well. I sent messages to others on site and have yet to receive any responses back. It's basically a scam and you should definitely report the ads from Craigslist. Don't waste your money.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Two separate times people have showed up on my doorstep wondering if this is the place they're going to rent. It's a scam. Both ended up in tears. Those who run the website should be indicted.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- Avoid roomster.com at ALL costs! This site is terrible for finding a roommate or place to live as it is the slowest site I have ever visited and the fees to contact another member are outrageous. On top of that, when you sign up for a certain period membership, they automatically charge your credit card without warning for the next period. I signed up for a 3 day membership for $5.95. When it expired they automatically charged me $29.95 for a 15 day trial.

I signed up for a 15-day trial and approved payment for $14.95. The service was useless. People didn't reply. Or the ads were clearly not real. Then I got notification from PayPal that I was charged $29.95 for another 30 days. Their marketing is shady because they don't state that a 15-day trial period automatically locks you into a 3-month plan.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Roomster is a SCAM. I signed up for the 3-day subscription and my account was charged $90 extra. When I noticed the charges I contacted customer service. I was told that there was nothing they could do about these charges even though I hadn't used the account after 3 days. I have never been more disgusted with the customer service from a company until now. The ads are mostly fake as well. Don't waste your time and money on this site!

WORST SITE EVER

They suck. I did not find anyone to buy my apartment lease, and they charge you multiple times and never tell you until you look at your account. And when you ask for a refund, they say they told you about the charges. They charge you so much they overdraw your account. This is the worst site and I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING IT! You are better off using KSL or Craigslist.

Every interested person is a very hot woman – yeah, right. Of course never heard back from any of them.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Need to fill a room in San Diego for 1070 a month. Interviewed a few people and picked the best fit. This site is legit, I would have had to move out of my apartment otherwise.
