    I wonder if uber hires/uses people to see if drivers will accept tips without first telling them they don't have to tip

    My response:

    I keep records of all of my Trips. If you would like for me to investigate the one you are inquiring about, please provide me with a Trip ID#. Otherwise, I will not be able to answer your inquiry about any specific trip but only about my driving service in general.

    I follow all local, state, and federal regulations. I do not accept cash for fares. The only cash I have ever received is for a Tip.

    I have forwarded your inquiry to the appropriate Uber Driver's Message Board. We are continuously trying to improve and value your suggestions.

    If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Thank you,
    Warren G

    Well first of all its none of their bloody damn business if a pax gives you money. If a pax wants to give you money to take them somewhere, log off the Uber app, take the money and take them where they want to go. Uber can not say **** if you are not running the app when you do this.

    To be on the safe side of things, log off AND close the uber app, also ask rider to close his app.

    Even logged off uber can track both of your movements and they will connect the dots

    I've had riders pull this on me too. They lie simply to get their fare refunded. The hoot of it is, they lived in a freaking million dollar home. They were 25 year old losers living with their rich parents who took a long ride on a surge. I picked them up from a private club for rich people. The fare was $45 so and they emailed Uber claiming to have paid me $35 cash to cover the cost of the trip. It was an outrageous total lie.

    I don't always get tips, but when I do i usually buy a Lotto ticket with it. Good way to Launder dirty money Uber doenst want us to accept for no apparent reason.

    is this real?! this would explain so many freaking pings that I get to, no one standing outside, wait for 3-4 minutes. Start to text rider and then get a notice the rider cancelled. After I've driven 10 miles to get there. That was just the one last night but I've really noticed this happening quite a bit.

    During PT%, guarantees, crack of dawn airport rush times, or last few "peak hours" (of the powerdrivery kind) of a week???

    That's not Uber... That's Ant Telekinesis : using TheForce to pull blocking ants off a desirable staging area

    Typical catalyst: wife/mom's phone, or drunk pax's (former) phone for especially daring dark hats

    pOST sCRIPTUM : I have NOT used this to my advantage, only ever witnessed unknown persons trying to cheat that way

    Uber has already told the passenger they don't have to tip. I don't have to repeat it.

    Last time I got this its because the PAX said he was tipping me than called uber and said he paid me for the fare with cash. Uber took my side I was surprised. Don't stop taking tips because of this. They almost got me to replay that I would have just cancelled him and logged off if i were taking cash for a fare........

    I had one ******* do it to me on a pool request. I told them, he requested the service and I drove the miles. Problem solved.

    I had that exact same scam pulled on with a pick up from a private country club to an estate probably worth a million dollars (Ohio dollars, not California). 24 year old kids of rich people who were nasty, spoiled brats. AND they claimed they paid me more than the tip actually was.

    Oh yeah this ******* was talking about how he was leaving his second Harley at that strip club and his frist was at some strip club in Ohio 300 miles away. Took him to at least a $500k house.
