Travoo: Keep 100% of your fares - Possible craigslist scam

So I was browsing craigslist today for jobs and gigs when I come across an ad for a rideshare company that is offering to pay drivers 100% of their fares. They also encourage tipping. I responded to the ad from a throwaway number. Almost immediately (I swear no more than three minutes had passed) got a reply back:

"Hello, This is Aaron ,I'm one of the South Florida recruiters ,thanks for reaching out please fill out our contact form at www.travoo.org and one of our recruiters will be in contact with you soon."

I went to the website and almost started filling out the driver sign-up form. I decided to look for contact information and take a look around the website first to learn a little bit more about the company. The site looks like an "under construction" website whose sole purpose is to collect information from would be drivers. I don't have any proof that they are fraudulent, but I wanted to put the warning out there in case any of you come across their ads.

I'm wouldn't be surprised if they had an application that tells you all of so-called benefits of the job, and in (fineprint) a small one-time application fee of $150 or something like that.

Being able to keep 100% of the fare is too good to be true under any circumstance. When some thing is too good to be true , it probably is.
When Lyft opened in Miami the first couple of weeks drivers were keeping 100 % of the fares ! That was 2 years ago. Just saying.

And nothing lasts longer than the temporary. Today , Lyft is fighting for life. They could have kept 10% of the fare with the same mileage rates which is way more attractive to drivers. One with the largest army of drivers is going to win this business. More drivers means more coverage and more revenue. There will be someone in the end who will take this business away from scoundrels like Uber and Lyft.
