It is obvious that the Seattle Craigslist Roommate ads hat refer inquiries to Roomster or Roomies is bogus.
Fake ads to build interest and memberships.
I am seeking a compatible Roommate but not in a big rush so I have been doing research and viewing ads on Craigslist. So many of the ads have been on Craig's for over 8 months - several of the continuing ads have the same typo's.
I sent my phone number as requested by the ad & immediately began to receive emails for phone sex, Asian beauties etc.
This business model is a great concept although dishonest from the beginning so I could not expect an improvement by submitting my credit or bank card information.
A valid background check requires a social security number therefore; Buyer beware.
In summary, I would not recommend Roomster to a friend.
