I heard from a firsthand source on WhatsApp that it is true, and I know I can trust that WhatsApp source because it has already been forwarded many times

My parents rented a 5br house with pool in Orlando near a popup shul for Pesach 2005. $200/night.
Wonder what it would cost today?
Probably x5 in a normal year and x10 this year if booked in the last month. So much more demand this year.

Seems like this was fake news. Yes, there may be a handful of stories but that's all. None of this Hundreds of Families getting messed over business.

My sis just told me she was helping someone book and with a little research found out it would be a double booking. I'm sure the scope is exaggerated but it's not fake news.

Some people – including one website – accused YWN of fear-mongering, over-playing and exaggerating the situation on how many people were actually double-booked. One website – known for publishing fake news for years – went so far as to publish a story headlined “rumors of widespread cancellations false”. Strangely, but not surprisingly, this website then ran an article a day later advising people if there is any recourse. We can now report that the amount of cancellations are exactly as we originally reported – and possibly worse. YWN has been inundated with email after email sent by victims of double-bookings and nightmarish situations.
lol. I am not finding humor in other peoples problems, but the line that i bolded is just too much....

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

The second – and even more disturbing scam – was that people began placing “down-payments” on many homes, showing intent to purchase them, with the condition that they can use it for Pesach. These people have no intent on buying these home, and many are cancelling their “contracts” after Pesach. Their down-payments are less then the amount they would of had to pay to rent a home for Pesach. In fact, YWN has been told that some “brokers” themselves went into contract on many homes to they could rent the homes for a profit. It appears that these “down payments” were done by brokers themselves.

The results of these scams? Hundreds of families finding out a week before Pesach that they have no where to go. One family had already shipped their food on Monday and were flying on Tuesday evening only to find out on Tuesday morning that their home had been cancelled.
Trying to follow the logic, because people rented via a down payment, others now don't have a home?

Did the sellers realize and cancel bookings?

maybe they have a lot more stories sent in or its possibly just fake news. are you surprised? They probably just wanted to defend themselves from the other website by calling them fake news

https://www.airbnb.com/help/article/990/as-a-host-what-penalties-apply-if-i-cancel-a-reservation-for-a-stay
"If you cancel a confirmed reservation, your calendar may be blocked, in which case you won't be able to accept another reservation that overlaps with the canceled reservation."

The truth about these stories of an airbnb being rebooked 3 times, or simultaneously booked to multiple families, are fake news. I believe that this issue is far less than what is being reported, but certainly concerning enough to be cautious. Use reputable sites, get the address and code info in advance, and you should be fine.
