A hostess in Airbnb claimed that I damaged her placemat (I know it sounds ridiculous because it is) and demands $100 via Airbnb, she also made a bunch of other false claims (that I’m a smoker etc). She’s an overall terrible person and I don’t want to give her a cent but Airbnb seems not to understand that what she’s doing is fraud and we’ve been going back and forth with emails for a while. My question is if let’s say she somehow proves that she has the most expensive placemat in the world can Airbnb take money out of my card that I have deleted as soon as I saw the whole thing going down? I would really appreciate your help.
Your rights depend entirely on your agreement. If that agreement says that you deleting a credit card totally ends your possible liability, then you are clear. I can bet your agreement does not include that term and, instead, says that you agree to them withdrawing funds for x, y, or x reason. Your option then would be outlined in the dispute resolution terms.
I hope this works out because if she is really demanding $100 for one placement, this hostess is insane and certainly should not be allowed to use Airbnb. I assume you can note this in your review (again, more agreement stuff).
