Yesterday while I was at work, I got a notice saying I had money, which I thought was odd. Turns out while I was working (an hour drive away from my nearest city) I had apparently picked up a rider and took them on a 4 hour trip.

The thief changed the instant pay cc to theirs and took the money. I've changed the email back you my own and put my wife's phone number in for the time being as my phone number was in use "on anther account," my guess is the thief's.

When I got home, I changed my password not only on Uber but also my email, Facebook, and bank accounts.

But how do I make sure they can't just change it back? The only way I made changes is cuz for some reason the app never logged me out when they made changes, which makes me think they're still logged in on their app too.

Thanks!

Best thing might me to contact uber. My guess better to use uber phone support for this issue than go through the app.

Contact your bank. I had an issue where some trued to change my email. The bank emailed me for confirmation using my old emailband 1had it corrected immediately. I also had it set up whenever a debit over $5 was charged they send me an immediate email advising me plus daily I get notifications for tranfers in and out and checks clearing.

Here's the problem
The refund isnt coming back from the debit card it was deposited into. OP's account will go negative. He's screwed
Actually no. When I went into the Green Light Center, they told me they already got the notice from the rider and refunded them. They took it off my record.

Any idea how the scammer got into your account? Have you responded to any phone calls or text messages purporting to be from Uber?

No. And the weird part is my password was completely random. CLGRKi4v! type. (Note that that isn't what it was, just random letters in the same style). I don't know how they got in, but it seems to be taken care of now.

I'm wracking my brain to figure out the scam, unless it was a brute force password attack. I would think Guber would have restrictions on failed password attempts, but this is the same company that could just as easily require some two party system to change bank account info, or put a 48 hr hold on transfers after bank account change.
