Dear Peter, it is indeed very unfortunate that you accused me of a scam, while you chose to hide the true facts of the case.You had booked a studio unit with me, the cheapest one that I have. Remember your booking was from Christmas day onward, which any one will know is the Peakest of Peak Season in Goa , as is the same with any touristy destination. While you landed early morning on Christmas day and because of the Mad rush, I was unable to take you in for a few hours which I expressed. However, when you called me again within a few minutes of your agreeing, I immediately took my car , picked you up and put you up for a few hours in a Palatial 3 bedroom Villa which was booked by a big group from PM 25th December. After a few hours when I called you to shift back you wanted to stay on in that palatial Villa ,all by yourselves (the two of you). You did not even have the decency to tell me to get the other guests adjusted in that Villa. I did mention to you that it was a Villa and there was a price to pay, but looks like, in your enthusiasm of staying there all by yourself and your Lady Partner, you , rather mischievously, chose to ignore my information. To give you the benefit of doubt, due to language issues, I grant you that you did not understand me. But how on Earth could you even imagine that a fully equipped three bedroom Villa overlooking the Sea is ever going to be the same cost as of the Studio , the cheapest one which you booked? Is the scam from me or from your end?
That you preferred to call a Senior Defence Officer, A Scamster, who actually went all out of his way to make you both comfortable, and did whatever he could to satisfy you, talks volumes of your narrow mindedness. Nobody ever in my whole life has awarded me this, and I object to it in the strongest way possible. Paying a discounted extra price for the stay in a Villa, is what you are talking about? Was that scam? Wasn't that something you ought to have offered on your own, anyway? Obviously, now I feel the scam was from your end and not mine. Just a few thousand Indian Rupees hurt you so much that all your age and maturity have been kicked out of the window. to choose to accuse me of cheating?
How on Earth you could compare a small studio unit with a palatial three bedroom Villa with state of the art, fully equipped kitchen and what have you?
Further, why should you ever think that I accused you of stealing a 20 Indian rupee worth hat?? The morning when you were checking out,my wife requested me to get her hat from the Villa, and she told me it was on the dining (Website hidden by Airbnb) was just a harmless question I asked whether you saw a hat on the dining table, since you were staying there for the past three days. Why should you feel anything otherwise.
And just for your records, I did all I could to pick you up in my car, self driving early in the morning of Christmas Day, put you up in the Palatial Villa , disturbing SEVEN guests of mine. Since they were all known to me and all of them respect my genuineness and integrity, they promptly agreed to my request to adjust with your stay for 3 long days., right during Christmas, I am rather SHOCKED, that instead of conveying a BIG THANK YOU to me and even to them, you chose to accuse me in the lowest way possible.
In conclusion, I did not expect a mature man like you , to accuse me so lowly, without even discussing with me before leaving Goa.And you stayed in Goa for two more weeks as was intimated by both of you and had all the time in the World to get things clarified with me.
In future, learn one thing first, if you feel you cannot afford something stay away from it, and if you feel you should take something expensive without being prepared to pay for it, then YOU are the Scamster, NOT ME.
You have raised suspicion on my basic unquestionable integrity and for this I demand an apology in the strongest term.
