The Catch: When we saw the subject line - "$300 Looking 4 a HOT female roommate!" we knew this would be a good one. Our Craigslist poster is looking for a roommate who is a "good-looking female between the age of 20 to 35" and "EXTRA points" if you're foreign. But wait - there's more: "If you're a cleanly person and willing to clean the entire place (again 3 bedroom, kitchen, livingroom, & kitchen), say one day a week or half a day if you're fast. Also, you'll need to clean in some hot lingerie. That's it. Not much to ask for $300 rent in a phat place!! Send a recent PIC." But don't worry ladies. This 38 year-old white male tells us he's also fun and good looking, and "I'm not a freak in any way and I expect you not to be either. " That's comforting.
