I clicked on see responses and I could see everyone's name, phone number and address on a Google spread sheet
Even more suspect.

Entered info clicked submit and then clicked the see previous responses every driver who responded is listed with phone number address etc.

It's definitely a phishing scheme. Come on, just publish you address on a random Google Docs page?

Report it to Lyft support (if you care enough).

Another question is where did they get phone numbers.

It came from the same number as the one that reminds you to drive prime time, or told us to drive to cochella (so cal). 887-69 is what the number shows up as. It might not be fishing, so much as someone doing a terrible job upholding privacy. Or it could be fishing

Lyft should know drivers' addresses and just send the placards without such ridiculous demands. I'm pretty sure it's a phishing scheme.

If it is a phishing scheme that would explain why some drivers received it and some didn't. Was there a recent Lyft data breech

I wonder what will happen to those people who filled it out :p I wrote some nonsense in there because it looks fake. I was also thinking since I can see everyone's address and phone numbers... I could do something entertaining.

Hi,

Thanks for writing in. I'd be happy to clarify this for you.

Yes, new laws in California requires drivers to display a second Lyft emblem on your back windshield.

Would you mind confirming your shipping address? This is to make sure that your Lyft emblem will be sent to the right location.

Let me know if you have other concerns.

Best,

Fernando

Hello,
I received this text message concerning displaying the Lyft emblem in California. Is this a legitimate message?

Lyft here! New CA laws require an emblem in your rear windshield, too. We'll mail it to you for free - just confirm your address by 5/31: http://bit.ly/1sAYiHJ
