Fraudulent Listings on Airbnb

I was interested in two listings in London. Both were fraudulent. They posted email addresses in the photo section with Airbnb in the script. When I messaged them through official channels they asked me to email them directly to check on the dates. I then got official looking booking emails that connected you to what looked exactly like the Airbnb payment portal. Payment was then asked for by wire. The apartments are probably from real estate listings (too good to be true). I paid but because it didn’t feel right I cancelled the wire an hour later. That’s a whole other issue that I’m dealing with my bank about. They said they didn’t get the money. I am not sure if they did yet. They sent me a second bank to which to wire money. The first bank was in Norway, and the second was in England. Based on the sophistication of the software I am sure that this scam is not limited to London, but has infected their entire listing database. I informed of this scam and their response was to send me scripted safety tips. I sent them copies of all the mirrored web pages and email addresses and banking info. I did not request they refund my money I just asked for the assistance and I have never heard from them.

FRAUD: Ana Y Oscar, Granada, Calle Alvaro de Bazan

I booked my room on Airbnb. the link of the host is the following: The hosts Ana Y Oscar stole my money. I arrived in the room that looked 10 years older than in the picture. Anyway was ok. The problem was that the room was on a nightclub! So I could not sleep. I had to walk out the apartment at 2:30 in the morning and get another room and of course pay again. The hosts were unfriendly and pieces of sh… They didn’t give me the money back. Furthermore, given that I cancelled the second night, airbnb doesn’t allow me to write my negative review on the website. Don’t go to Ana y Oscat, they are thieves!
