Airbnb is a new travel start-up with a ridiculously stupid idea. An idea that is going to get people hurt. You can open up your home to absolute strangers visiting from out of town:
Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone. Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 33,000 cities and 192 countries. And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.
Do they actually screen the visitors? A complete background check? This will not end well.
