Wonderland actress Emma Lung has been been left devastated after her million-dollar Redfern plus designer warehouse was 'cleaned out' by thieves.
The Sydney born actress and her director husband advertised the accommodation on Airbnb and as a result have been battling the global online hosting site over the incident.
"They took everything. Family heirlooms, even her identity, it was all stolen,” friends of the star told the Sydney Morning Herald. “It has been a complete nightmare for her but the frustrating thing was she has had a really difficult time trying to resolve it with Airbnb...she has spent months trying to get some sort of resolution."
"She suspects they were organised criminals and they have probably done this sort of thing before, fake IDs and all that. She will never put her place on Airbnb again."
According to Airbnb, the matter has been resolved, insisting that 'while incidents do happen, they are extremely rare.'
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, more than 60 million guests stayed on Airbnb in 2016 and there were only 1,010 cases of property damage over $1000 globally.
The Sydney born actress has declined to comment on the situation.
