    Is this the actual phone number to call for drivers to call about the claims?

    So my mother told me the news was talking about the class action suit against Uber and provided this number: (800) 947-8319. I called it and a woman claimed she was Uber legal hotline. I think her name was Veronica. Has anyone actually heard this number from the news and/or called it?
