I have been getting requests from Airbnb about additional information about my bank details. They say that payments will be paused until I provide this information. Does anybody know if this is a scam or not.
Thx for helping,
What I think is dodgy is that it's vague, it doesn't seem urgent, so I didn't deal with it, thinking if it were urgent they'd keep sending messages...meanwhile they held quite a few payouts before I realized what was going on. They do have an explanation on their help site but here's part of what it says. There's not much more info than that. Appreciate if anyone discovers the specifics of it.
In some cases, we’ll ask you to provide additional account details and information. This is something that’s required to keep your payouts coming.
As a licensed payments business, Airbnb is also required to ask for this information in order to comply with global financial services regulations.
