Over the past couple of months, aside from all the pet requests when my listing not only says “no pets,” but also has a picture of my cat, I find I’m getting a ton of requests from people who have “verified” accounts but “joined” in January or December and have zero reviews. Since I don’t do IB (because I want to make sure they read my house rules and because of the no pets/no kids policies), I can initiate a conversation with them.
I now have 2 bookings for the next 2 weeks and neither couple has a review and both accounts are new. I’m a bit concerned that they may have had negative reviews. Anyone have any experience with this? There have been too many for 3 months now.
