Imposter Airbnb

He said his name was Jose Luis Salcedo.When. He first texted me, he didn’t even know the locations address for where I was interested in. I played along but then it got more suspicious. He said his daughter used to live there and he’s the owner but it’s a single apartment in a maybe 5unit building. Just didn’t add up. The link he sent looks real and he says you can chat live with someone for help but I’m sure that’s just him. The website is fake and all the links on it lead back to the same page.This is the email he sent me. He only ever got my name, email and number."Nice to hear back from you. All sounds good and i feel that we are ready to proceed. You should know that i want to use Airbnb services in order to book, inspect and sign the lease. They will be in charge of everything and the entire transaction will be done thru them, so we are both safe and secure. The reason why i am doing like this, is that we dont live in the US anymore and we really need to rent this property for long term. My daughter used to live there but now we are relocating in Spain and we no longer need it. Please send me your full name so i can contact Airbnb and initiate the transaction and they will get in touch with you with necessary steps and instructions you need to follow in order to check the property and sign the lease. Rent price is $1,000 with all utilities included.I look forward to get your reply."

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on, it is strongly advised to avoid Imposter Airbnb in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Imposter Airbnb. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Imposter Airbnb is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
