    This is getting to be known as one of the 2 ways that riders can rip us off.
    I've heard of this happening from Former Uber Drivers.

    They don't even have to give you cash, all they have to do is SAY they gave you cash and if the CSR beleives them, they get the ride for free and you get cheated out of it.

    The other method is for the passenger to cancel the trip after they get into your car. This one is infinitely worse because they can simply say you have the wrong passenger, and if ANYTHING happens on this trip... James rivers insurance doesn't cover ANYTHING at all, because you arn't on a trip.

    and that's why you immediately pull over and kick them out. Do not let them re-ping you. Too bad if the neighborhood sucks.

    If they cancel while in the car, can't you tell the cancellation happened pretty easily??

    Actually, they can. It's both in the TOS and local regulations. Not to mention you have contracted to pay them a percentage of all fares.

    Throwing it away is a good way to launder money?

    Reminds me of the coke head "investing" his money, but snorting/smoking it all up.

    Just thank them for reaching out but unfortunately due to customer privacy considerations you are unable to discuss details of any individual trips with them at this time, but if they have any other questions they should feel to reach out again. Uber on!

    I have received tips as large as $20.00, for a 20 mile trip. Riders are not stupid, they know what a TIP is. Those that tip, are accustomed to tip. (when services are rendered to me should a tip be in order, I double the tax, 8% and move on.), although in Alabama, we only tax items, not labor (then I go by the charges). I never tell a customer that a tip is not required, unless they ask, at which time I tell the PAX the answer is, no mam/sir, not required . I graciously tell the PAX when they hand me the money, that I really appreciate it, and thank you very much....end of story.

    Working in the service area, you become a better tipper!
