I am Italian but I live in France, and I need to move to US. I am searching for an apartment in Boston and apparently I found a good one that I like. I did a Skype interview with the other flatmates and they seem nice (I added her on Facebook too).
She asked me to pay at least the first month rent by the 1st of January (I will move there the 10th of January). I understood that this is quite normal in US. She asked me to send the money over Paypal. I could do that but I wanted your opinion whether you think is safe or not to do it.
Let's look at the worst case, what does it happen if she steals money from me? (I don't think it will happen but I like to think about the worst case :) )
Is there a better/cheaper method to send money (which is always reliable)?
Thanks a lot for the help.
