what is going on out there ? I got 7 rides and each being a person(or group) of people offering some sort of over tipping scam. Like come on lyft. This is getting out hand. Def' can't wait to start Uber. Just doing this in my down time. I swear people try to scam anything!
So they drag you into the scam ? I'm sure they are understanding if you say I don't have, not giving cash back as it's against policy.It's a scam where you drive the pax with a stolen CC. He/she will ask for half the trip ride in cash. You can run up the bill by driving them anywhere you want.
Let say the ride came out to $100. He/she wants $50.
I have seen a Juno ride that was over $1000.
How you know his name? Those guys use alot of fake profiles over there they create new ones on the daily. I have met about 6 of them until i learned no more mt vernon.
This is the dummy that ran into my cousinI accepted call in Mt. V today to see what the deal was.
Two teeenagers get in my car and cance the trip, even though I hit pick up first, this was on s 3rd Ave
Kid gets in the car, I said you have no destination, kid goes pull right by that house so we can put one in.
I say where are you going, kid says waiting on three more friends to come. I threw my car in reverse, kid goes where you going, I said stop here.
I backed up fast and said I'm dropping you right back where I picked you up so you can get out of my car, I have to pick my daughter up at school and that's my destination since you don't have one.
Skinny teen and his boy try to act hard, I said you can say what you want, get out of my car and do it on the sidewalk, I said you dragged me 15 mins for this nonsense, kid said oh sorry yo.
His name was josh
Old guy in 60s that these kids use to make these fake runs because they know he has a drug addiction.
I had a request tonight it had a weird name I dreaded to decline it but I took it. The guy got in my car and told me "You do round trips?" I said nope you gotta request another Uber driver once I complete the trip. So he was on the phone with a female and I over heard her say when you get close I will request another Uber. I didn't think of it that much he requested me as Uberxl after reading the responses in this thread I am going to try and just avoid Mt Vernon altogether.
I am a new Uber driver, however me being from the Bronx I am very cautious about Mt Vernon and I plan to avoid it altogether at that time of night. I dont know what he was up too, I did find it odd that the person he was on the phone with was going to hail another driver. As soon as I got him to his destination I went offline and headed home for the night.Are they scamming uber as well ? I wasn't sure if you picked him up doing Lyft or uber.
