We do our best to make sure that only real people with an actual room for rent can list a room on Roomi. Most room listers on Roomi verify their account by providing a copy of their lease or utility bill + ID and connect their Facebook/LinkedIn. Other users can see what verifications the room lister has gone through, the room will be displayed with badges.
Our security and safety team also requires address verification from the room lister.
Remember to never send or transfer a check or money without a lease and seeing the room.
