Florida woman says Airbnb host in Tulum tried to sex traffic her friends
Wow! What would you do in this situation?
A St. Petersburg, Florida woman named Amber Jackson got scared for her life while vacationing in Tulum, Mexico, thinking she might be a victim of sex trafficking.
She was checking into her Airbnb that she had rented with her girlfriends when she noticed what looked like blood on the front door. After asking the concierge team about it, they assured him it was just paint, but Jackson wasn’t so quick to believe them.
That wasn’t the only strange thing they had noticed during their stay at the vacation home. Once inside, Jackson noticed that the keypads weren’t set for the rooms, it would essentially give anyone access to their rooms at any time. Jackson reconfigured the keyboard herself and felt more comfortable so they went out to have fun with her friends.
After getting out they decided to go home and that’s when they found a strange man standing in front of the house pretending to be security. By then they had already been there for three days and had never seen security another evening.
Jackson immediately called the owner and the concierge team, but no one answered all night. The women were so scared that they protected themselves with knives while they slept. The next morning they gathered their things and left early.
It wasn’t until Jackson contacted Airbnb directly that she finally got a response from the owner who only offered her a refund of $67 when the total was $3671.65. Jackson then posted a bad review for the house on Airbnb, but noticed that his review had been deleted.
She wants to warn anyone else who is planning to stay in the house and she is worried that she has been the victim of sex trafficking and wants others to know.
After Jackson posted her story online, several other women shared similar stories after staying at the same house! The owner has now changed his name and profile picture on Airbnb to escape the multiple bad reviews.
