The only time I would not use CL is if you cannot meet the owner/roommate before the move. If you're lacking time, I'd get my own apartment, and if needed, find your own roommate.
It's not all scams, but always watch your back. If something seems too good to be true it probably is

It's not ALL scams, but there are a LOT of scams on craigslist. It's too high of a probability to use it. One of my employees was just ripped off by a craigslist scam artist on a rental last week. It's very common. There are much more reputable places.
