    They kick me off of instant pay for almost a week about a month ago go, saying there was some type of security risk between my driver account and rider account.

    They would not give me a reason why I would assume maybe it was because I was using my Bank of America debit card for both my rider and my driver account,

    I know do the following:
    Wells Fargo debit card for my old Rider account,

    B of A debit card for my driver Rider account,

    American Express Serve card for my direct deposit,

    And for instant pay i use the Uber go bank card,

    After that change uber is not giving me any more problems..

    I see what is happening. Uber wants people to use their Go Bank Card card but people will not do this...willingly. They'd rather use their own debit cards, so suddenly there will be errors of this nature so they'd have no other choice BUT to use Uber's Go Bank Card.

    I would like to think that is not the case, but it is starting to look that way..

    But why specifically Bank of America I wonder? Its my understanding its not happening to other banks, though BB&T's five card holders haven't weighed in yet...

    Yeah I had the same problem. So last night I woke to use the restroom @ 3:30am & tried to cash out one last time. It actually worked so I don't know if the after 12am rule is still in effect. It certainly wasn't last night.

    I looked at 7am and had missed the time as nothing in the easy pay.. something up with my lyft pay also so gonna be a ****ty week waiting to get paid till Thursday.

    I still find it fishy as frick that no one was able to cash all weekend and suddenly it works when payments rolled over the next week.

    This is what Uber responded with after my third inquiry to my Fri & Sat pay. It's always wishy washy without commitment to a real answer.

    Say whatcha mean and mean whatcha say....

    Yeah finally got my deposit and it was shorted by $19 change. I had to fight with them about that. They said a pax rebutted the fare and I drove her around needlessly causing an unusually high fare. She was 94 yo going to the dentist and she put in the wrong destination address, so I had to stop and call for the address. Her kids out the Uber app on phone so she had no idea how to use it.

    Uber finally coughed up the fare to me. Uber thinks the pax is always right! I notice when $20 is missing. Wrong girl.

    I just started this week and used it for the first time and it was in my bank account instantly and I was shocked. When I made other online payments it takes days to show up. But this was my first time doing it.

    I'm having the same "Looks like we're having trouble reaching the uber servers" problem. It's been happening for several hours. If it is a maintenance break then they need to publish the downtime in advance and provide a better user message indicating that.

    It is also funny how everything else seems to be working, just not the ability to pay me. I'm glad I have less than $100 on the balance and that I cashed out before. I think from now on whenever I get more than $20 or $30 I am going to cash out right away.
