Anyone used airbnb.com to do an apartment rental? i found one that seems too good to be true....
i'm looking in manhattan for mid-september and this was one of the cheapest ones on the list. looks too nice for how little he's charging. the owner signed up for the site this month and i don't think he's rented it before. i've contacted several people from airbnb and vrbo and this guy is the first to respond quickly and that his place is available. is it a scam? http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/587458

To be true and answered right away. But my impression was that airbnb was much more legit than Craigslist. But part of the legitimacy was lent by reviews. How do you pay on airbnb? The Craigslist scam always involved the owner not being in town an,d you were supposed to pay by western union or Moneygram. Anyway, if you have a bad feeling, henisprobably a scammer
