AirBnb be aware of a scam on this site (not AirBnb's fault)

I am owner of a house that has rooms in it that I rent out. I had trouble finding my own listing because of a technical error. (My fault!) However because of that I stumbled upon someone advertising my property without my knowledge and I even managed to rent it although I did not pay. They had taken photos in my house but never bothered to arrange the dishes in the kitchen and the towels scattered on the terrace. He/They may well have been guests at one time.

I have been in touch with AirBnb by phone but so far no one has bothered to contact me. Criminal postings such as this should ring alarm bells with AirBnb as it undermines their security.

So be doubly aware that when you rent it may not be from the real owner.

I am trying to trick him into contacting me directly in order to make a complaint to the police.

Will keep you all posted but please let others know about this.
