    A woman representing the a firm called HP Singh Consulting LLC confronted me about my suspension which was withheld apparently because the office has been closed for days. They said essentially for half the cost they could have my suspension for a late payment of the re-inspection fee no less...

    There is a scam going out there where you will be sent to a pick up location only to find that you're waiting for the passenger until the time runs out. When you call the passenger, they say that there is no passenerger there, and they are from Uber and were trying to get ahold of you. They...

  6. Detroit
    I picked up a passenger named Terez in Brightmoor Detroit area. The guy was waiting in his front window and walked out of the house before I even hit my brakes. We confirmed names and went on our way, 2 stops and a final destination which consisted of well over a 20 minute trip. After the trip...

    This is a long one, but I think it's worth reading - I got hit with one of the scams going around today. While I was en route a rider called using the app and pretended to be someone from a local greenlight hub. He asked me to cancel the ride and select "do not charge rider" and to pull over...
  11. Technology
    This is scam using chatbot technology. I went through the process of them inviting you to a private chat and working you up to make money. After looking at Facebook profiles, it appears to be one or multiple scammers. Companies that are going to compete wth Uber and Lyft do not launch a product...

    What is the FBI doing about all the lawless scammers, phishers, identity thieves? It’s like the Wild West. I got a call from “Uber Support”, asking me to pull over (somehow “knew I was on a trip”- likely just good guess) then texted me, asked for email and password. The first phone number was...
  20. Denver
    Anyone run into the scam where "Uber Technologies" calls you to say the rider you're about to pick up is fraudulent and you won't be paid? This is definitely a scam.
