How do you handle a "blacklisted" guest?

When using to screen upcoming guests and you find someone on the blacklist, how do you tell them no? Do you say that you're all booked up? Do you tell them that they've had problems at another facility and they need to clear the matter up before you will accept their business? Do you not address the issue at all and simply say "Thank you, but we'd rather not accept your business at this time"


Just curious how others have been handling this. Thanks in advance for your opinion!

    I wouldn't tell them you know anything.  They could have someone else rent and then do the angry renter thing anyway.


    I would just tell them it's booked or if you are suspicious, tell them you have another inquiry that you have to tend to first, then tell them that it's booked.


    If they are already a trouble maker, just let them down as nicely as possible.  Tell them they might want to try some other web-site.  Mention one that's not used much in your area. 


    I hope this helps!
