    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...

    Hi, First off, let me extend my apologies if this topic was already discussed. I did a search before writing this post and didn't find anything that specifically covered this topic. I'm a fairly new driver and drove for a few months in 2018 when I encountered this scam about 3 times more...
  3. Lyft
    I don't think its very productive to make drivers have an algorithm that decides a certain amount, to have to drive across town, 10 miles away for only a 2.7 ride, there are closer drivers. Customers don't wanna wait, and this policy is only in the best interest of Lyft..statigy of ..burning...

    Today I went to pick up a rider in an area that I don’t usually go to, (just happened to be close after another drop off); the young guy was up at the top of the street, he moved to get into the car and then he called the skanky couple who were down the street to get in.
