    Uber taking tips?

    Sounds funny right? Wouldn’t surprise me though. I took a much needed break for a month and came back and every tip I have received in the past week has had change involved but when I go to see what the rider paid, it doesn’t round up the the nearest dollar. Thoughts?

    The worst driver scam of all

    If you read a few stories on UP you will quickly learn that there are plenty of scams that an occasional slimy passengers (pax) may pull on drivers in order to get a free ride. Some of the common ones include claiming that the driver was threatening, drunk or made inappropriate comments, the...

    Lyft "bonus" vs. PT is a total scam!

    Here's a good example of new reality. Lyft charged passenger almost x2 surge price and paid me 1.67 as a "bonus". Scammers!

    I bet 500 dollars...

    That UBER will not pay me out the 500 appreciation reward. I just wanna be on the record. They haven't said anything to me yet. The fake excuse will come soon.

    Bridge Tolls

    Just a reminder, Uber are routinely “forgetting” to pay one of them if u get rides both way, and they always “forget” to pay for East Bay to Treasure Island. It used to be rare enough to be maybe accidental, but now it’s systemic. They are lying, thieving shits. But then we know that.

    Passenger wanted me to join him in scam

    I pick up some kid in the Bronx and he tells me he can offer me an opportunity to make a little extra money. He was being dropped off and I received another request, so conversation was cut short. He said we should exchange phone numbers and he'll explain later. I thought whatever and gave him...

    Beware of GoBank

    Someone stole over $700 from me. They must of hacked my account or something. Somebody made $700 in atm transactions while I was using my card regularly. I wasn’t even mad because I figured GoBank would give me my money back because even Ray Charles could see somebody got me. I can’t be at Taco...

    Hospital tries to get rid of patient by calling Uber

    Unbelievable that a health care facility would call for a rideshare in an attempt to get rid of a patient they don't want. Isn't this illegal?

    Uber IPO short sell?

    How many of you are actually short selling Uber IPO? I want in, but don't know much about this other than I borrow stock from a brokerage, immediately sell and buy back on the dip and give back the stock and I keep the margin. Is personal credit taken into account, or is this capped by how much...

    Keep the Change You Filthy Animal!

    Lady sends back food delivered to her as prank. She said some guys would send her UBEReats in the middle of the night as a prank. Apparently this happens often to her. She tipped me $25 to return the food to the guy who ordered it for her. So I sent her this. Best customer interaction by far.

    UBEReats ONLY 7.75 Hours RESULTS Day before Thanksgiving

    I have concluded that the people of Orlando are the scum of the Earth. I somehow make below 4 dollars an hour after wear and tear.

    UBEReats deliveries just got a pay cut.

    UBEReats drivers will not qualify for anything in the "Pro" pay cut. Terrible company. Thinking about that movie Fight Club right about now. Also Falling Down, another great movie. Seriously though, we need to organize and go protest at UBER for creating a slave system with extra steps. I'm...

    "ubersupportcenter dot info" scam

    This is my first post here, so I apologize in advance if I did something wrong. So this is just a heads-up to all my fellow uber drivers and the story behind it. It happened on a Saturday, and I accepted a ride somewhere in Tustin. I was about to pick up the rider, until the guy who ordered an...

    I went to pick up the order as usual. The Carribean Diner in Orlando. The girl there refused to give me the food until I swiped picked up on the App. I told her that's not UBER's policy for pickup. She then refused to give me the food. I talked to the manager of the restaurant and they said...

    UBEReats only. 8 hours RESULTS!

    Stop driving for UBER. They pay BELOW minimum wage after mileage and wear and tear. The "quest" system is a joke. Now, you have to earn the "quest" system and other promotions by becoming a slave for 300 trips. Modern day slavery.
