'Don't ruin my weekend': Host scams guest who turns out to be ex-city inspector, gets property red-tagged and costs host over $70,000 in repairs

If you're going to do some shady work, then you should at the very least do some research on your victims. Like, that's villainy 101. You can't scam a scam artist, ya know? You're already getting chased by karma, you shouldn't give it any reason to catch up. But, oh boy, when karma does catch up is it satisfying! This kind of justice got epically served recently by a guest who almost got scammed by the host of a condo he booked for a long weekend. According to this reddit post , he and his frie…

'The neighbor avoided them like a coward': Guy's property is repeatedly trespassed and damaged by neighbor's Airbnb guests

Where is an HOA when you actually need one? Of course, I'm being facetious when I write this because as we have seen so many times here at Fail Blog, HOAs can be treacherous. That being said, someone has to get this dude's neighbor kicked out of the community. Not only was he listing his place as an Airbnb, which is not against the rules of course but I wouldn't want to live next to one, but also he and his guests are consistently trespassing and damaging other people's property. It turns out,…

'The worst customer service we've experienced': AirBNB stiffs customer when host double books them and cancels their reservation AFTER check-in

It's not new knowledge that AirBNB has been on the steady decline. It's more than just shoddy hosts trying to pull some sketchy things. It's also AirBNB host coming in and jacking up living prices and buying up houses that could have been a lovely home. Long gone are the days where AirBNB is romanticized. Now, we harken back the days of hotel, motel, Holiday Inn (cue Bogus Trizzy song). Here is another example (out of many floating around the internet) of an unsatisfied AirBNB customer. This wo…

'He [only offered] 10% off of a future stay': Vacationer gets denied a refund when his rental home becomes uninhabitable; guest goes straight to the top and gets 30% off

They say that by the age of 40, you should have a vendetta against at least one vacation rental company. For some reason, travel always make people turn extra greedy and with all this cash floating around, sometimes hosts of vacation homes lose a sense of genuine hospitality. In this case, one vacationer had to take justice into his own hands when his vacation stay went down the drain– literally.

‘You rented out my home’: Landlord Airbnb's tenant's home while he's on vacation, refuses to cover costs of missing items

When you're on vacation, the last thing you'd imagine happening back in your home is other people living in it, as you continue to pay rent according to your lease.

After filing a claim with the police, OP asked around, searchin…

This dude has what he believes is an excellent money-making scheme, but his mom is going to be so mad at him. U/NicoDeeMaus had a query for the r/AmItheA**hole community.

'We got here first, so we got dibs': Woman kicks entitled friend out of Airbnb for demanding nice bedroom

This friend really believes in calling dibs, also known as the rule of the land in most situations. If you run to the car faster than anyone else, you get dibs on where you sit, or if you call dibs first on movie night, you get to pick the film. But this friend is calling dibs on something else entirely — the room she's choosing to sleep in during a vacation with her friends . U/yayabanana17 wrote to r/AmItheA**hole to settle an argument. As she explained, the group was planning to travel with…

Without password sharing for movie streaming services, how will humanity survive? Families are being torn apart as some streaming services have ceased allowing families to share passwords with each other. Now, something that was once a legacy — having a cheap pass to let all your family and friends mooch off your Netflix account — is no more. Indeed, the younger generations are rolling their eyes and switching to the next cheapest service. That's just one of the mildly annoying things people sh…

This guy is lucky to have a girlfriend with this kind of initiative! She discovered that four adjacent units in their building were being used as an AirBnB ring against management rules.

'Send us our $1,000 back or I'm going to have a sleepover with your parents': Airbnb ‘Super Host’ scam massively blows up in scammer's face after irate guest finds all his personal information online

When traveling, it's always a little nerve-racking planning ahead. You may have done everything you were supposed to do in a very organized fashion, but sometimes life has different plans for you and you have to improvise. Though a very popular choice, Airbnb can be risky when finding a place to stay because it's just regular ole' folks hosting people for some extra bucks—it's not a legit hotel. But sometimes the price is worth the risk… SOMETIMES. Recently, a video went viral of a girl going O…

Airbnb host left me an unfair review and it cost them hundreds

'Host left me an unfair review and it cost them hundreds': Guest gets 'blasted' in email from BNB host for bringing a dog to a pet-friendly home

Since the place did permit pets, the OP thought it would be smooth sailing for the three of them. But upon meeting the owner of the Airbnb , there was an immediate issue.
