First, upfront this came via Vrbo but I love y’all’s input so I’m asking….
Clearly I think this is sketchy. I don’t know why they’d be doing this, though? Party? Dates are in early December so not a “dine and dash” scam on the surface.
Here’s the skinny (some items are not notable alone, just giving all the dets): new profile (2021) & therefore no reviews, celebrity (moderately) name who just died (so can’t google for any clues), 2 people for a 4/2 that sleeps 6, mechanical sounding message, Sat-Sat booking, sent an inquiry (about if dates are avail when they can see they are) when I have IB turned on so pointless message. Even more strange, was given option to “send pre-approval” Screenshot attached. CS explanation was system glitch, maybe , & would give me no further info (verified = phone and email, hmph, hardly)
I asked what was bringing them to town, full name and ages of both persons, if they had any questions on my House Rules, etc. No reply so far.
What’s your ruling on legitimacy?
