Yes, I have. Back then my friends and I were planning to go on a vacation. We were then looking for a cozy house where the seven of us could stay. Since the place where we're going to is relatively cold compared to where we come from, we decided to search for a house with fireplace. We came across this one house displayed in AirBnB. Our search was filtered based on prices so we thought we'd have the best deal.
So we talked about the owner, and discussed about our plans. To our surprise, she requested for a meet-up. We were having doubts about that but still gave it a go because she told us that it's better to talk about that in person, after all, she's just near the area. We meet up and gave her 50% downpayment.
Fastforward to vacation day. It was raining very hard. It was an overnight trip. When we left the city, weather reports said that the rain is still manageable but when we arrived to our destination next morning, it was already in a state of calamity! We began looking for our house. We walked along the street that's indicated in the address, but the house number does not exist. The house is missing or rather it really isn't there to begin with. We were all soaked and do not know what to do. Luckily, a woman who claimed to be a relative of the woman who tricked us, offered to help us. She let us stay in one of their rented house but the worst thing, it doesn't have electricity and water. There you go, Murphy's Law.
