Scammers have found a fertile field in Airbnb
How many of you have used Airbnb as an alternative to a hotel or for an extended stay option? Many times it works out well but like everything once successful the bad guys get into the game and scams begin and it all goes downhill from there. Some scams involve last-minute property switches, properties that are not as advertised, requiring payments outside of the app, and threats about poor reviews. It is time for Airbnb to up their game through spot checks, certified properties, etc. If they don’t they will fail like other online properties that can control the scammers.
