    Any idea of weekly rent on Montauk? Trying to judge if work earnings would cover it but can only see old posts which mentioned $140 p/w with 5 in Motel room - but that's from 2012. Anybody got any more up to date rates? What are people paying in Ann Breyers / Tipp Inn?

    Be wary of Craigslist. Had property offered to me in Montauk for reduced rate. Seemed - as they say- too good to be true. Did loads of research and eventually found ad for another unit in the same block of condos and emailed that person . He told me that the owner of the unit I was intending to rent was NOT the owner and real owner never advertised on Craigslist. I was sent a lease etc by scammer which seemed legit. Got name, bank acct number, phone number etc from them and all my questions were answered . Basic fact, seemed too good.
    I went to a lot of trouble to check that it wasn't a scam. Luckily I found out. Please everyone, be careful! Btw prop address on Emerson Ave , Montauk. In case anyone caught!
    Back to the drawing board...

    Hi j1ers!
    So I'm an Irish lad who's been living in NYC for the last two years. This summer I am moving to Montauk to bartend for the summer season. I have found a basement in a house through a friend of mine. Basically it will be myself and my girlfriend in one bed and then with a curtain or divider I need two people to fill the other bed. Preferably two girls. I am 24, and while I will obviously want to have a great summer in Montauk I'm going out there to work and save money. I am looking for two people to fill the other bed to secure the house for the summer. From May-Sep. a couple and their dog live in the main part of the house itself, this will not be a party house, so it may not suit of you folks, but I'm looking for two mature girls or guys who will be out their to of course have fun but also to work and over 21.

    Hey :) Just thought i'd let you know that I nearly got scammed by a person who gave their email address as [email protected] and gave a name as Dana. It turned out to be a total hoax.

    This might be a totally different person though :) The place I was looking at was a one bed place with room for 6 across from the beach.Reasonable rent. Was looking for a bank transfer and was advertised on craigslist.

    It was obviously too good to be true but luckily I copped on in time :eek:

    It was a close call for me so just thought id let you know...just in case.

    Hope it works out for you (and that we both find accommodation!)

    Thank you so much, definitely sounds like it could be the same people! Really appreciate your reply!

    Re recent post. This is the link to scam posting on Craigslist. Its still there and doesn't seem to be any way of hi lighting it as scam on website. Pass it on if you know anyone else looking in montauk this summer. Nearly caught out and would like to warn anyone else..
