We’ve had quite a few phishing emails recently from unscrupulous folks pretending to be Airbnb and asking us to follow a link and sign in due to some made up reason. Of course the link will take you to a page that may or may not resemble an Airbnb looking site, but checking the URL it is not www.airbnb.com (Or dot, what country you’re from). It will no doubt be something like www.AirbnbHostHelp.com or something along these lines.
If you receive one of these, forward it through to Airbnb and the delete it straight away. Don’t respond and don’t click any links.
As far as I’m aware, Airbnb will never send you an email asking you to follow a link and sign in. If you’re unsure, double check with them by going to your dashboard and sending a message to support.
It’s not just Airbnb style phishing emails, we get them from banks and other online stores.
