We can provide “sting” operations to verify fake listings, illegal listings, or improper behavior with hosts and/or guests who use STR web platforms like airbnb, couchsurfing, love home swap, vrbo, vacationrentals, tripadvisor, flipkey, tripping, wimdu, roomorama, or any website offering rental arrangements between parties.

Our team can discreetly contact hosts who may be illegally operating Short Term Rentals within jurisdictions who do not allow such activities and can provide evidence of fraud, scams, or inappropriate listings so that legal action may be taken or the offending parties may be evicted or have their listings removed from STR platforms.

Our Private Investigators can arrange bookings, meet with hosts using surveillance gear and capture audio and/or video evidence of illegal or improper listings or behavior.

Web platforms like Air BNB are not actually “hospitality companies” as they claim; these platforms are merely the user-interface for software and internet-based platforms to connect buy and seller. They do not operate under the same restrictions as real hospitality businesses like hotels, travel agents, airlines or other legally registered and licensed entities who must adhere to fair business practice and offer an expected level of customer service.

Air BNB and  website-platforms offering rental arrangements between parties couchsurfing, love home swap, vrbo, vacationrentals, tripadvisor, flipkey, tripping, wimdu, or roomorama are not able to verify and police and arbitrate their listings. Fair customer arbitration is impossible due to the scope of the platform and this has lead to a drastic increase in fraud, scams and the victimization of guests who are unable to receive timely customer care. When web-platforms like airbnb are making money from illegal listings, rascist hosts, illegal properties or flat-out scams they have little enticement to try and clean up their platforms.

BNB PI can help by allowing concerned guests, property owners or citizens to hire the investigative service to provide surveillance, sting operations for properties that are running as illegal hotels, investigate and report illegal and fake hosts and guests who use web-platforms to perpetrate scams and steal money anonymously behind the protection of terms and conditions that web platforms have designed to ensure they can deny all responsibility and still keep their money making scheme alive.

BNB PI Private Investigation Services can help obtain information on the credibility, identity, or background of a host or guest or STR member. Background checks and search and recovery to discover deceit, uncover fraud and help garner evidence to punish criminals or scofflaws involved in the STR industry either as hosts, guests or others involved in STR platforms.

We provide investigations by compiling and searching through databases and public records and connect-the-dots between illegitimate listings or fraudulent misrepresentations which have become prevalent on STR platforms like airbnb, couchsurfing, love home swap, vrbo, vacationrentals, tripadvisor, flipkey, tripping, wimdu, roomorama, or any website offering rental arrangements between parties.

Our Sting operations allow for verification of published materials and to perform vigorous background checks that can be used as hard evidence to confirm suspicions of fraudulent or illegal BNB listings on web platforms.

The verification process used by web platforms like like airbnb, couchsurfing, love home swap, vrbo, vacationrentals, tripadvisor, flipkey, tripping, wimdu, roomorama, or any website offering rental arrangements between parties is sketchy at best. Hosts and guests can create fake listings quite easily and create poipular listings by hiring fake guests to comment and leave good reviews for their properties.

Our hotel sting operations can help by gathering evidence that can be actionable against illegal hosts who reduce property value and neighborhood enjoyment by creating hotel-like environments in areas where private residents are not allowed or licensed to do so.

Our hotel and STR sting operations involve our team going undercover on platforms like airbnb to pose as guests who are seeking accommodations. These sting operations are initiated by property-owners or municipal councils who are trying to curtail the growing problem of illegal listings of short term rentals. The BNB PI team can gather the names and contact information of the hosts or associates or entity involved in the illegal hosting activity and can allow law enforcement and bylaw departments to act to shut down illegal listings.

Our extensive knowledge of STR platforms and our wide-reaching team of well-established and well-aged guest accounts allow us to penetrate into the details of illegal hosts without arousing suspicions.

STR web-platforms like airbnb, couchsurfing, love home swap, vrbo, vacationrentals, tripadvisor, flipkey, tripping, wimdu, roomorama, or any website offering rental arrangements between parties are not interested in hospitality or customer service; they are interested in profits and avoiding all responsibility of licensing, identity verification, tax evasion or reducing affordable housing options for the population. Trying to reach customer service is next to impossible and can often take days or weeks to get responses when their platform revolves around instant-bookings and the time sensitive issue of booking and check-ins. While the popularity of these platforms has taken over people tend to forget that something called AIRBNB is merely a brand that is being marketed as a lifestyle in a new economy and is not a hotel or hospitality service in the traditional sense.

Because such platforms are virtual businesses they only offer virtual guarantees and virtual customer service. Time after time people have felt the scams and frauds and have been ripped off by illegal listings even after a listing has been reported and BNB PI Private Investigation Services can help win the battle against web platforms that disregard common business procedures and ethics merely to enrich their creators.
