Elaborate airbnb scam

Post by drumm3rboi88 » Wed Jan 27, 2021 3:27 pm

Hello,

I have recently encountered quite an elaborate airbnb scam, and I am stuck at the moment.

I have tried grabify, but unfortunately, the scammer is using a vpn.

All I have now is a fake website with a payment gateway, I was wondering if someone tech savvy could help me track down who is behind this.

Here is the link:

Tracking down scammers is not something that we do here and what do you plan on doing if you were able to track them down. They are most likely somewhere in Eastern Europe, Africa or the Far East and local law enforcement will not be interested.

The best thing you can do is report the fake website to AirBnB's fraud department, they are in the best place to get it shut down.
