Another bogus site, but surprisignly good CS
22 April 2017
Reviewer: Mays1 from LA , CA

The site is actually pretty decent. The layout is simple, similar to the old AIM chat layout except for housing. The message center is easy to navigate and send to any potential person you saved.

The customer service was super fast and fixed all the problems they said they would. This was by far the cheapest scam site to say the least.

But the listings....so far have all come up as bogus elaborate fakes, at least the enticing ones with photos and actual descriptions. There seem to be a overwhelming number of women potentials that are all surprisingly good looking or decent. But some are outrageously fake. No way some biking model is making enough money for a 4000/month house and with those bogus lame details.

The biggest redundant scam I saw was the "i'm moving from out of state I need a place by _date" All in copy and paste format with a few details modified. I actually wasted my time sending a email to some. Some subsequently went offline or deactivated soon there after.

Also the site blocks you from putting a number or email account. So basically you are left to only using there site email system or putting your... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would not recommend Roommates.com to a friend.

Deceptive, unethical and should be reported as illegal.

There are no good points. It is a fraud from the very onset. It is, to begin with, not FREE. And, even when you pay $20 for the upgraded "Choice Membership", you get nowhere at all because, although you are now able to view other's profiles, and answer messages, they are not. You see, most people do not pay; they are too cheap I suppose. In 3 months I received only one message. And, I must say, without any modesty, that I had the most gorgeous condo, on the lakefront, than anything I saw as my competition. I thought I would be bombarded with offers. But, no one can reach you, or even see the pics of your place without the upgrade, which I paid for 3 months until I told them that I would perhaps sue them for causing me to lose thousands, yes thousands of dollars on rent. They quickly returned my membership money; but I wasted all those months. I would say that returning my membership money is quite an admission of guilt, wouldn't you agree? They are, for lack of a better term, a real scam.

In summary, I would not recommend Roommates.com to a friend.

Not Free at all!

I was misled by their Free Sign Up. I canceled my account once I realized what they were doing. Here is my response as to why I did:

There is no functionality except to see a match or listing but only basic information without upgrading. There is no way to communicate with prospects without upgrading. In fact there is really nothing useful that can be done without upgrading. Why do you allow people to even post for free. I was VERY dissatisfied and your service is useless to me and I found it underhanded and misleading. If you had just said that this is NOT a free service up front, it would have at least been honest. I will be using another service and posting my experience regarding Roommates.com.

In summary, I would not recommend Roommates.com to a friend.
