I told them to delete all data they have on me.
airbnb said:
Hi Mark ,

Thank you for your email dated February 20th, 2019.

Hope this message finds you well. My name is Florencia from Airbnb team.

We understand that you would like to exercise one of your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), namely the right of erasure your data.

As a data controller, Airbnb has to verify that the person making the request is, in fact, the data subject entitled to make them. We have implemented identification and verification procedures to ensure that we do not edit, delete, or hand over personal information at the request of, or to a person impersonating a data subject.

We kindly ask you to re-send us your request and to attach a photocopy of your proof of identity.
Of course, "Florencia from Airbnb team" is probably, in reality, "big fat slob Miguel from mother's basement", but I can't be @rsed to demand certified copies of his passport and employment contract (yet).
I replied:
What a very "clever" and slimy demand.

How, exactly, will a photograph of me prove my identity, when you don't know what I look like?

The e-mail address that I use to log in is all the proof of who I am that you need, because it is the only thing you have that connects me to my account.

Do not try to get clever with me; it will only inspire me to take harsher action against you.
They're already in for a sh1tstorm of trouble, because my "buddy at the Ministry" agrees that the way they are coercing people to hand over their passports contravenes more than one current law.

If I might make a suggestion: don't use their services, and especially don't pay for anything through them, because it's quite likely you'll lose your money, when they shut the site down and run for mouseholes.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
