To Whom it May Concern, Airbnb has been a fun and excellent experience for me. As a single hard working 62 year old female, Airbnd has helped me stay in my home, help me pay my mortgage, utilities and other household expenses. It has also help families/my guests have a safe environment to stay at an affordable cost with much needed flexability. I feel confortable that Airbnb has safety tools on their website to protect my name, address and phone number from anonymous solicitors. Hosts and guests must go through Airbnb's background check before registration is completed. I have not has a bad experience with my guests or Airbnb. I have an Airbnb 5 star rating. Again, what an oportunity Airbnb is for middle class earn extra money and help others. Thanks Airbnb from Susan Petty in Kansas City Mo
