Prostitutes Turn Airbnb Apartment Into BrothelS

Airbnb—the service that allows you to get some easy money by renting your place to strangers—has risks. You know your things can get stolen, your place can get trashed, your sofa can get infested by someone else's pubic hair—and now, your apartment can get turned into a brothel.

Kernel Magazine is reporting that a private apartment in Stockholm was rented via Airbnb and then turned into a call girl cozy nest.

The owners were on a four-week vacation when they arrived to find a note by the police: 'your house has been a whorehouse for a month and we had to raid it. Sorry about that!' More or less. Apparently, the police had been following the suspects for a while. When they broke into the house, the prostitutes were in bed with two punters.

The owners—two young Svenska women—then found a bag full of condoms that the policemen obviously missed. Useful evidence, at least. According to the owners, the Airbnb users looked "very high class, with business suits… it was strange that they would rent an apartment when they clearly could afford a hotel."

At least they were nice and clean, unlike the "psychotic criminals and identity thieves" who trashed a woman's apartment last summer. [Kernel Magazine]
