  1. Complaints
    Hi guys, wanna share one not so happy story. I was going after trip to hotel at quite late time, and I was very hungry, so I ordered via Uber app food - in Brasil, Manaus. It was simple Mac Burger from Mac Donalds, for some reason my Credit Cards in Uber stopped working when I went to Brasil...
  2. Toronto (Ontario)
    This lovely, little, unsolicited gem just arrived on my phone. You know what they say about something that seems too good to be true? Did any of you get this also?
  3. New York City
    I read different types of scams and frauds that are happening out there but I haven't read any like what happened to me not so long ago. Basically the pattern goes like this: When you arrive at the destination they ask you to change the address (which is odd considering that they can easily do...

    No Uber, this delivery is NOT 0.8km, it's 10km. We shall let another lemming complete this order, thanks for trying though!

    https://kover.ai/ What do you guys think? The site looks Clean and legit to me but I'm hesitant..
  6. Seattle
    Got an email purporting to be from Uber. It says I am due for another bg check (uhh ok. Never got one of these before but whatever), and that all I have to do is open the app and go online to concent, with a link at the bottom of the email rhat says 'go online'. Obviously, I don't click that and...
  7. Complaints
    I was almost a victim of a telephone scam directed at uber driver's I got lucky and managed to block the attempt at the last second, but before that I was taken in by the scammer. After my experience I searched around I have found threads specific to my scam experience, however slight...
  8. New York City
    Soho. 2 passengers get in back. Drop off address is same as pickup address. Passengers' friend ordered the car. They don't know exactly where they're going but it's not far. Driver calls customer using app, bad connection, can't understand. Pax 1 asks to borrow driver phone to call and...
  9. Lyft
    Does Lyft issue a dividend? To date, Lyft has not declared or paid a cash dividend. We currently intend to retain any future earnings and do not expect to pay any dividends in the foreseeable future. Meaning lyft CEO is profiting from the stock
  10. News
    Just saw this on the news. A fake website has popped up that claims to show the outbreak of the coronavirus on a map. It claims to be from the John Hopkins University. It's a fake. Do not click it. (Link to this news story only.)⬆...
  11. Advice
    All, I just joined this forum so I can alert you all of a SCAM that will Cash Out your earnings. Last night, I received a ride request from "Designated Uber Ride". Don't accept the ride, just ignore it. Or accepted it and cancel it. You will get a cancellation point on your profile but you...

    So boom, i get a trip, passengers name(i will reveal later) and he/she has a solid 5 star. im driving to the pickup and i received a call from the passenger (the automated machine announced it) i pick up and the convo ensues; lady (who speaks like a customer rep) : Hi (my full name) u drive...
  13. Philadelphia
    Sounds funny right? Wouldn’t surprise me though. I took a much needed break for a month and came back and every tip I have received in the past week has had change involved but when I go to see what the rider paid, it doesn’t round up the the nearest dollar. Thoughts?
  14. Articles
    If you read a few stories on UP you will quickly learn that there are plenty of scams that an occasional slimy passengers (pax) may pull on drivers in order to get a free ride. Some of the common ones include claiming that the driver was threatening, drunk or made inappropriate comments, the...
  15. Los Angeles & Orange County
    Here's a good example of new reality. Lyft charged passenger almost x2 surge price and paid me 1.67 as a "bonus". Scammers!
  16. Pay
    That UBER will not pay me out the 500 appreciation reward. I just wanna be on the record. They haven't said anything to me yet. The fake excuse will come soon.
  17. San Francisco
    Just a reminder, Uber are routinely “forgetting” to pay one of them if u get rides both way, and they always “forget” to pay for East Bay to Treasure Island. It used to be rare enough to be maybe accidental, but now it’s systemic. They are lying, thieving shits. But then we know that.

  19. New York City
    I pick up some kid in the Bronx and he tells me he can offer me an opportunity to make a little extra money. He was being dropped off and I received another request, so conversation was cut short. He said we should exchange phone numbers and he'll explain later. I thought whatever and gave him...
