What are the best ways to avoid fraud (primarily, no shows, refusing to pay)?
I get many cancellations from booking.com. I also get an abnormally high number of reservations from booking.com, holding their reservations, and never arriving.... "no shows."
Then, when I try to charge for the first night cancellation penalty, the credit card is invalid.
I continue to try to get payment from the guest, and in the meantime, booking.com charges me for the cancellation penalty which I haven't collected.
