Just received a request to book for a month beginning next week from someone registered on airbnb as Patsy. The email is “signed” David. So I looked at the profile thinking maybe David is her partner, but her profile only has the most minimal of details and doesn’t reflect a couple. The verification shows only that she has 300 FB friends. She joined this month and no reviews.
David said he needs a place for about a month, he’s buying a home and will need a place until the closing. My gut tells me to decline, but I’m wondering if I can vet him by checking with the closing agent.
Are the dollar signs clouding my instinct to decline this request?
