A fellow host was blindsided by an organized party circuit where they rent the property with a fake guest (verified but no reviews) and then invite 100s and charge for the party. In this case, there were 300+ people who subsequently broke the floor/foundation, etc.
Is Airbnb looking to better vet guests? Perhaps a more thorough guest rating system similar to what car rental companies do (under 25 age would have a higher security deposit etc.)?
I’m hearing of more and more fraudulent guest issues.
