There are a lot of Airbnb scams out there, but Afar is sharing ways to avoid them.

They say to avoid getting scammed, you must book pre-vetted homes.

Also, check the host’s profile and read all the reviews.

In addition, they suggest making sure you are on the website, not paying in cash or Venmo, knowing your rights, and making sure the listing isn’t too good to be true.
