The security of our users is our utmost concern. We use online resources and verification phone calls to make sure the advertiser is legitimate. However, we are an open marketplace, so if you are still suspicious of the listing (too cheap for the area, unrealistic photos for the price) you can report the user from their profile and we will investigate for you.
In the unlikely occasion that it is not genuine, our secure payment system makes sure scammers never get paid - we handle the payment of the first month's rent until 48 hours after you have moved in, which allows you time to inspect the room and make sure it matches the standard of the advertisement. Make sure you never make payments outside of the platform so that you are protected from fraudsters.
Hope this information gives you some peace of mind!
