Wtf is up with AirBNB?
My mom, sister, and her fiance were all banned from AirBnB without ever using it.
My mom tried to use it for the first time and as she was purchasing a place, she was given a technical error screen. She then got an email saying she was banned and this was final and there was no obligation to tell her why.
My sister then tried, and same story. Her fiance tried, same thing. I finally tried and even I was banned.
I've used it quite a bit before and have only had good reviews. AirBnB wont tell us anything.
WTF kind of scam are they running?
After this experience I am glad cities are cracking down on them. Ive read elsewhere that others experience it too with the same bs response.
I will gladly use a hotel from now on. Theres not much of a diff in prices anyway. Atleast hotels cant (or at the very minimum dont) ban my whole family without some type of reason.

- Twitter OomnjHotels are 100x better for all kinds of travel. For extended vacations - get a vacation house instead of an Airbnb. Dunno why people use them
- If you and your family suck as much as this post you wrote, I'd ban you all too.
- Comcast G0kuI can make an educated guess about what happened.
2-3 years ago, airbnb acquired a stealth mode online security startup called trooly
They used to look at people’s online data and identities to assign them a “trust score”
Its possible that one of your family members has a bad online reputation. It could also be the case of a stolen identity
- Amazon Bill.Love how "we are not obligated to provide an explanation for the action taken against your account."
That is true, but it is a courtesy to a customer to understand why. Especially in a case like this one where there appears to be some kind of error, but without a reason you have no way to correct or defend yourself if you so use the service and someone makes a false statement.
- Expedia heresJonnyYou don’t seem to understand the definition of a scam. As to why you’re banned-could be a glitch or someone has a bad ml model evaluating potential troublemakers
- Booking.com f@ke_newsCheck where is the next event that their CEO is going to, go there and make a complain in front of the audience. Recently that approach seems to get a lot of attention.
- New nope |Yeah it's likely the initial person was flagged for something and then everyone else was flagged because they were trying to create accounts from the same computer or IP address or for the same house. Companies don't share information because people can sue them based on the reason. Give no reason and there's no ammo.
