Renters May Be Thieves


Sometimes an Airbnb host makes a deal with a renter who may have a sketchy background. This happened to a host from Oakland who rented out his place to a couple who turned out to be meth addicts who tore up his property and stole his belongings, including his birth certificate, and also abandoned their cat. According to the host, Airbnb officials rescinded their offer to pay for his damages, which didn’t seem to faze the host, as he continues to be an Airbnb user.
