A couple of weekends ago, I did a surge fare that was over $100 which needed authorization. Long story short, I was assured that I would be paid yesterday (Thursday). Yesterday came and went...no money. I went into the driver app and found the fare and wrote in about this. They quickly sent back the same boiler plate response I got the last time.

The final fare is usually $1 per kilometer times surge multiplier. If I perceive the fare will go $90 or higher, I'm going to tell the pax that Uber gives us no end to grief for fares over $100 and that I'll only do the trip if they pay me cash. I'll even give them a 25% discount...which would have been Uber's take on the trip. Can't agree to that? Get out of my car. I'm not doing the trip.

Well, there's the insurance part... Will you drive all that distance with the app on and just not take any rides? They could even find it fishy if something happens and the pax is in the car... and you already cancel that one. Just saying.

I would cancel the trip and log off. If there's an accident, I'll tell my insurance I was taking my friends home.

I am so not going to work for free...especially not for Uber. I'd rather kick them out of my car than go through this grief all the time.

Never had an issue with this, they have always paid the next pay period. If you want to send me the trip details in a PM I can try and send it to someone I know. Might not get seen this weekend but I can be sure an eye takes a look at it.

Do not take cash to drive them without being covered by the insurance. It is risky and anything might happen before the rider moves out of your vehicle.

They pay : the frustration u go through for your hard earned money ; begging for it ; 2- 20 emails to get it resolved : Idea of holding money is highly unfair; they should take it back if they think it a fraud: I have been victim of this very often

So in addition to being a poor bastard, you're a liar and insurance cheat. Muhahaha
But you have a case with Uber, I also have a problem with when there is no navigation signal and the uber app simply draws straight line between two points and calculates the km's that way. I always check your trip summary but haven't had any issues with getting fare adjustment from uber

For sure Uber hates you... :p
Joke apart, this never happened to me.. I always email Uber about such issue and last week I didn't even email (Friday night fare) and I did receive money on time.
I can understand and feel the frustration.. Aggressive follow-up may be needed.

Issue resolved.

And this is weird. Let me explain: I went to the Midland road office to get to the bottom of this mess. CSR tells me I've already been paid. I go into the driver app and the fare is included in the payout for that week for a total of $570. I said yeah, but that was not the actual figure I was paid. When the pay landed in my account, it was $485. So I logged into my banking app to show him what I actually got. Now this is where things get strange. The entry for Thursday the 21st from Uber is now saying $570. Well, you could have beaten me silly with a wet noodle. I've never seen anything like that before. Now, I don't actually work as an accountant but I did study it a couple of decades ago. What I learned is that you're only supposed to change a figure in a ledger if you actually made in incorrect input. For example, you entered 369 when you should have entered 396. Anything additionally added to that account is a new and separate entry. So I was expecting the money owing to be paid separately since it was not an entry error and was a payment awaiting authorization. In the past, that is what I usually see.

To those of you whose real job is in banking: does what my bank (TD Canada Trust) did make any sense to you?

You never supposed to change entries, does not matter if it is, accounting, banking, healthcare, etc. You just don't pull out 'eraser' and change past entries. You enter new transaction to correct old one with appropriate documentation. Can you imagine the audit/cheating/fraud nightmare if systems allow changes to historical transactions? Not saying it can't happen, but am sure compliance departments won't allow it. That is how banks like Barings etc blow up. Oops lost big money on trades today, let me change that to a profit, am sure i can make it back tomorrow...

Now, I've had it happen a number of times, but I've always seen charges over 100 posted into my account properly. Never seen adjustment after the fact.

I have had lower amounts adjusted though, more often Upwards after I've complained of incorrect calculations.
