Today in Southbay Santa Clara. I got a XL ping less than a mile away.

I get to the location and receive a call from the rider.

Rider: " Hi this is uber support I notice you're picking up a rider by the name of Patricia"
Me: Yup
Rider: We are experiencing GPS Issues in the area and the rider is requesting to cancel. Since you have arrived to the location we are going to issue a cancellation credit. Just cancel the ride and you will receive a credit.
Me: Yup
Rider: Sir we need to verify your Date of Birth and Phone Number on uber account.
Me: Yup, okay sure.
Rider: what is your phone number
Me: okay sure. its (gave him fake number)
Rider: we would now need your last 4 digits on your debit card.
Me: Sure gave fake number
