I got scammed on Airbnb and it was a totally legit listing. I only communicated with the people through the Airbnb app. When I got to the house and met the folks they seemed cool. When I went out for dinner, they stole all my stuff and locked me out. They told Airbnb my dog was violent and they were scared. I tried multiple times but I couldn’t get any refund and my luggage and laptop and camera, everything was stolen. They are still on Airbnb offering the same listing. I’d say Airbnb needs to be made illegal in every state. That’s the only time I used them so in my eyes they have 100% scam rate. There is no protection if you use them. The renters were even able to change their refund policy after I paid and the new rules were instantly considered valid. To make it worse, they sent me an email saying God bless, Jesus loves you. Also, once they canceled my reservation I wasn’t allowed to leave negative feedback. So, no one will ever know by looking at their listing.

I called Police today with the same issue, and they said it is not a Police matter, but a personal matter. This is disgusting
Police didn’t do shit, happened to me in La. I’m still trying to get my stuff back.
Looks like airbnb is a good place to get your ass mugged, raped or killed. Another way to screw people with a computer/device and the internet.
Seems fake, why didn’t you call the police?
exactly, that’s what i thought!
