Why when my rooms are closed, did I get a reservation?

Also how long did it take for people to get their verification code?

This is proving to be a challenging site for a sole operator

Also, I have accepted a booking.com booking; directly to my channel manager, NOT via Booking.com as still not verified I charged the guest the booking.com rate and now B.com have sent an email saying they are going to send me an invoice? Can someone explain that for me
