Do you have a dashcam? If you don't, that's the trick. If you do maybe the ride was requested by a third party

No dashcam....but I did call earlier that exact day and reported him cuz he wanted to get dropped off a few blocks away from Middlesex county college.....which I didnt understand why when I could've dropped him inside the parking lot.....long story short I didnt trust him and apparently he must've did this before so idk.....I was more surprised that they gave me my fare back immediately

Bro....please get one. If you operate in Newark Irvington without it, you'll have at least 3 wrongful pick up issues daily. Ask those who know....

The same thing happened to me a few weeks ago. Uber took the ride payment away, then Uber support reviewed it and decided I was guilty of fraud. I had to go to GLH to clear it up and get my $72 back. I will never again drop someone off a few blocks from their destination unless they change the destination in the app.

I had been this forum for a while and the vets were all saying get one. My aha moment came after seeing a video one day of some female hood rat from Da Bronx saying to this calm and collected driver. If you don鈥檛 do this or that I鈥檓 telling the police you raped me. Got one the next day. Do you need that in your life? Bonus it may save your butt in a he said she said accident where someone is saying it鈥檚 your fault when it isn鈥檛 or to dispute a traffic ticket.

A dashcam is an ass saver, or rather life saver. even if uber reduses to review footage, it can help you in many other ways. pax will also be less willing to engage in fraudulent acts when they know there's a camera to begin with.

Dash cams are major deterrents. Last night I picked up a dude and drove him to his iop. No sooner do I get back to the area I picked him up, I get a poo ping from the same name/address. Now curious how this dude beat me back, I accept. Get to the house and about a minute later. In jumps a hood rat. I ask him his name and he says the name of the guy I drove just before. I tell him that he is not who he claims, then he tells me his girl ordered the ride. I tell him his girls name is Vinny? No way. I tell him to get out my car, he starts arguing, I reach up and hit the button in my vantrue and light up the screen and tell him that we are driving straight to the police station if he don鈥檛 get out. He did, the clock ran
Out and I got paid. Thank you vantrue

He wanted and got a free ride to Middlesex county college it was him....uber knew it was him and I'm guessing he did it before and now I believe hes deactivated....I'm not 100% sure but being that they immediately refunded my fare I'm guessing it was an easy case....plus I covered myself that day with a in app message

Nothing like it. First Vinny was cool. 20 minute ride, a pretty stand up kid. I knew he was in the program just by the location, but he told me before I let on I knew what iop was. Plus he was Italian, the 2nd version was a hood rat, with the correct hr attitude. He wasn't riding in my whip in any event, I just played the clock out.
