I had several of these reservations from North African countries and they are fake. Booking told me that they often make these reservations in order to apply for a visa to enter the country (they must show the embassy that they have a place to stay - even though they have no intention of visiting). They search for places that do not require a credit card to book. Booking said to simply send a message giving them 24 hours to pay a deposit (give them the exact date and time deadline in the message). Then contact Booking after 24 hours and explain. Booking has always cancelled the reservations for me when I followed this procedure.
