The first time I tried to book a charity flight through AirBnb, I had to wait for a message that I was not accepted.
The airline has a long history of sending bogus bills to unsuspecting passengers and I thought I was getting one of these.
The message read, “Sorry, we cannot accept your booking at this time.
Please call the number on the booking confirmation page.”
I called that number and spoke to an agent.
She said the problem was with a fraudulent number.
She told me to contact AirBnB and ask to change my reservation.
I said no.
I tried calling again and the agent said she could not do that, because I had already booked.
The agent did not know the number was fake, and told me it was “invalid.”
AirBnBs customer service team told me they could not help me because they were not registered as a charity and could not confirm the information.
So I called the National Center for Charitable Dealing and found out what was going on.
The Center for Charity and Philanthropy, a non-profit that works to prevent charity fraud, said they are aware of the issue and are working to fix it.
I called AirBns customer service and they told me the same thing.
I then called the FBI and AirBndes support office, and they said the same problem.
I told them I wanted to contact the FBI because I am concerned about my account.
They told me AirBnnB does not want to help me, but that the Center for charity and philanthropy can help.
I sent the information to AirBntes customer service, which I could not reach.
I also called the AirBnw’s customer service number and it was busy.
AirBnb has an agreement with the IRS to collect and send tax receipts, but AirBbs customer service told me there was no way to tell AirBunnB if it was trying to trick me.
I am now worried about the security of my account and wondering what I should do if AirBnzbs tax refund is not coming through.
