Vegan beauty magnate Cassandra House (pictured) has been accused of attempted fraud after allegedly lodging a false insurance claim to Airbnb for $1million
A vegan beauty magnate has been charged with attempted fraud after allegedly inflating an insurance claim with Airbnb after a guest trashed her luxury apartment and stole jewellery, $40,000 worth of designer dresses and 18 pairs of shoes from Gucci and Chanel.
Cassandra House, 35, will front court next month after allegedly lodging a false insurance claim against the online rental giant for $1million.
House previously claimed in a lawsuit filed against the accommodation provider’s insurers that the guest at her Gold Coast beachfront home destroyed her luxury Kruger pans and kitchen pots worth more than $1,300.
Ms House – a high-ranking consultant with multi-level marketing giant Arbonne – also claimed the guest stole a $50 silver banana and a $279 bottle of Dom Perignon champagne.
She was charged with one count of attempted fraud earlier this month to appear in Southport Magistrates Court in December, the Gold Coast Bulletin reports.
In a previous court filing, Ms House claimed the guest destroyed her luxury Kruger pans and kitchen pots worth more than $1,300
The successful consultant with multi-level marketing company Arbonne said a $50 silver banana she alleged was stolen from her matched the ‘apple decor’ of her two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment (pictured) on Main Beach on the Gold Coast
Damages were filed after the guest stayed at her apartment on Southport’s Main Beach between April 1 and April 5 in 2018.
The motivational speaker said in her filing the stolen banana matched the ‘apple decor’ of her two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment – which is available to rent for $700 per week.
Other six-figure valuations in the long list of claims include $10,000 worth of Swarovski jewellery, $25,000 worth of Tiffany and Co ‘diamond gifts’ from Arbonne and $55,000 in engagement presents.
Police will allege House submitted several insurance claims to Airbnb but the goods claimed to be stolen were overvalued.
The guest was reportedly charged with theft, according to the Gold Coast Bulletin.

Her website boasts that after nine months of working in network marketing Ms House owned her own Mercedes Benz car.
Within a year, the profile says, she had become a national vice president at Arbonne.
