I am starting to research the various roommate sites and Craigslist for a short-term share in the New York City area. I am seeing some ads that look similar with many of the same details. Most of what I've seen here is being done to people who have the rooms for rent.

Does anyone know of scams I should watch for from the side of the renter? Thank you so much in advance.

If they ask to send you a cashier's check for the deposit and rent, it is a scam
