Can my account be transferred without my agreement?
I am an owner of a small company renting a number of properties. For each of the properties I set up Booking.com accounts and do my best to get the best reviews and scores - for all of them they range between 9.7 and 9.9 in Booking.com. One of my partners (owner of one of the properties) decided to try renting the apartment on his own. He asked Booking.com to transfer all reviews (in this situation we are talking 33 reviews with average score of 9.8) to his newly opened account. Even when I protested local representative of Booking.com agreed to the transfer.
Now I am thinking of all Booking.com partners in the area who have to start their accounts from the beginning and work hard to get good reviews and high scores. For months or years the mentioned owner will get unfair advantage over them.
Now let's think of Booking.com guests who will chose 9.8 apartment and might be surprised that the service is not as good as in the reviews.
My question is if it was right practice of local Booking.com representative to transfer reviews and scores without agreement of person who started property account from scratch and if such an action is fair to other Booking.com partners and guests.
Please help and let me know if you heard of a similar issue.
