Now that Uber forces us to contact the rider via their substitute numbers, is it safe to assume Uber keeps a tab on all text and phone conversations?

It would depend on the laws in each jurisdiction. Certainly in WA, they would definitely be breaking the law if they recorded or listened in on any conversation, because it is illegal to "record, monitor, or listen to a private conversation to which that person is not a party".

As this issue is a state based issue (different states have different laws), this thread is being moved to Brisbane thread (state of the OP)

Uber are ghosts in Australia. All payments to uber from customers go to Uber Netherlands. Uber Australia have no money. So to get any restitution you would have to sue uber Netherlands.
Good luck with that. There is a reason they incorporated there.

That's odd, there's currently a case before the Federal Court entitled:

Uber B.V. v The Commissioner of Taxation of the Commonwealth of Australia

If you know anything about Uber, you know that literally all of Uber's money outside the US flows through Uber B.V., so yeah, they can sue, and be sued, in Australia. Any foreign entity that carries on business in Australia is required to register with ASIC and is able to sue and be sued.

I think this was in response to Uber Perverts calling female customers, I had one lady complain some Indian Uber driver was calling her at all hours. I believe it took a police complaint to stop him, Uber didn't seem to care at the time.
