I haven't been an Uber driver in at least 2-years, but recently, within the past month, I keep getting notifications from Uber saying I'm getting daily reports of my drive fare income. Then just today, I got an email saying the money could not be deposited into my account because of a bad checking account (true, I got a new checking account last year). However, as I said, I have not driven for Uber for 2 years, and my car's information on their website is all outdated since that time, so I have no idea what's going on here, but there doesn't seem to be any way to actually contact Uber whatsoever. All I know for certain is that this year, I got a bill from the IRS for taxes due for ubering in 2015... I had no idea Uber wanted considered the drivers as private contractors and wanted them to keep their own taxes in savings, but this is not the point as I paid my dues to Uncle Sam. The issue is if the IRS tries to come at me again for taxes for ubering I did not due to a mistake Uber has made, I will definitely not hesitate to take Uber to court over this, and with no way of contacting them, it's even more frustrating, and I'm not going to waste my day going to a help meeting when none of this is my fault. Any suggestions?

try this number 800-593-7069. in the drivers app there is a number to call them now
Don't bother with the phone number. That goes to a call center in India or the Philippines. If you actually want to speak to an employee of uber, which is exactly who you need to speak to, you'll have to go to a green light hub. I see you're in the Santa Barbara area of California. Google "Uber Greenlight hubs California".

Immediately seek medical attention. You have a serious case of sleep driving.....similar to sleep walking, but with a car.

I literally just got this email, and talked to the 1-800# and confirmed this is why I'm getting "paid". They keep trying to "pay" me which is showing up as a driving invoice because I guess Uber doesn't have any other way to issue funds; lol, $0.75...:


Steven Price v. Uber Technologies, Inc., et al.
California Superior Court, County of Los Angeles
Case No. BC554512
Claim ID: URP-101757190
Dear [REDACTED],

Plaintiffs Steven Price and Hani Aly (“Plaintiffs”), in their capacities as private attorneys general, sued Defendants Uber Technologies, Inc., Rasier, LLC, and Rasier-CA, LLC (“Uber”) for civil penalties pursuant to the California Private Attorneys’ General Act of 2004 (California Labor Code §§ 2698 – 2699.5) (“PAGA”). Plaintiffs claim Uber misclassified individuals who used the Uber software application (the “Uber App”) to generate leads in California as independent contractors, thereby violating those individuals’ rights under the Labor Code. Uber denies all liability, and it asserts that all individuals were and are properly classified as independent contractors. Nevertheless, Uber has entered into a settlement with Plaintiffs solely for purposes of resolving this dispute, which has been approved by the Superior Court for the State of California, County of Los Angeles in Price v. Uber Technologies, Inc., et al., Case No. BC554512 (the “Settlement”).

Pursuant to the PAGA, 75% of the civil penalties recovered by Plaintiffs under the PAGA must be distributed to the California Labor & Workforce Development Agency for the enforcement of labor laws. The PAGA provides that the remaining 25% of the civil penalties must be distributed to those individuals whose Labor Code rights were allegedly violated (the “PAGA Settlement Group Members”). The settlement also allocates $775,000 to Labor Code section 558 penalties, 100% of which will be distributed to the PAGA Settlement Group Members.

Company records show that you consented to a background check as part of the sign-up process to use the Uber App to generate leads in California between the time period of July 8, 2013 to January 29, 2017 (the “Settlement Period”). Therefore, you are a PAGA Settlement Group Member. As a PAGA Settlement Group Member, you will receive a pro rata share of the portion of the Settlement paid to the PAGA Settlement Group Members. The amount you receive is based on the number of “Active Weeks” during which you used the Uber App during the Settlement Period. An “Active Week” is defined as any week, measured from Monday at 12:00 a.m. until Sunday at 11:59 p.m., in which you accepted a lead using the Uber App. You will receive credit for one additional “Active Week” for the week in which you consented to a background check as part of the sign-up process to use the Uber App. If you both (1) consented to a background check as part of the sign-up process to use the Uber App; and (2) accepted a lead using the Uber App during the same week, you will receive only one “Active Week” credit for that particular week.

Based on Company records, your share of the Settlement is $0.75. You will receive your share of the Settlement via direct deposit to the bank account that Uber has on file for you by April 13, 2018.

The Settlement settles any claim that could be made by any of the PAGA Settlement Group Members, including you, for any and all claims for civil penalties related to alleged misclassification that arose during the Settlement Period that might be brought under the PAGA based on alleged violations of Labor Code §§ 226, 226.3, 226.7, 226.8, 351, 353, 354, 432.5, 450, 510, 512, 551, 552, 558 (not for wage claims), 1174, 1174.5, 1182.12, 1194, 1197, 1197.1, 1198, 1199, 2753, 2802, as well as under Wage Order No. 9, only. The release of penalties under section 558 of the Labor Code does not affect the underlying wage claims. To the extent a claim for civil penalties under the PAGA arises directly from the operative facts pled by Plaintiffs’ and implicates the same primary rights and defenses being settled in this case, those claims are settled and released to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.

Please Note: Individual settlement payments are subject to taxation and must be reported to the IRS and state tax authorities.

Please contact the Claims Administrator, Kurtzman Carson Consultants, with any questions. The Claims Administrator may be reached at:
PO BOX 404041
LOUISVILLE, KY 40233-4041
Phone: 1-866-666-7552

Do not call or write the Court of Office of the Clerk to ask questions about the settlement or to ask questions about the settlement distribution process.

So there's some guy out there driving for free on your account and his earnings are waiting to be deposited into your bank?
His earnings are waiting for the OP to pay taxes on...

And you people thought it was absolutely horrible when an illegal alien use the social security number of a dead baby to get a job and pay into taxes that they'll never get a return on and pay into Social Security that they'll never be able to collect on...

Check the app hourly. Add your bank acct, do a deposit, then clear the info. Take the money as soon as it was "earned". And hope that whomever is driving in your name doesn't rape or kill anyone.
