I have been driving with Uber two months in Las Cruces. Last night I received a request from a passenger "John". The request was in a generic location, not specific to an address, off of Spruce Street. On my way to the location, I had a local phone number on my phone come through from a 575 area code. I thought the call might have been a personal matter, as this is our local area code. However, the person identified as an Uber employee, calling on behalf of the rider request. According to the caller, the rider John wanted to cancel the request, as he had decided to get a Lyft ride instead. She stated that she was going to compensate me $25 for the cancellation fee. As we know, if after two minutes elapses, the driver app automatically applies a cancellation fee to your balance. The "operator" then went on to request my user id and password. My wife cashed me out, then we called Uber. This is a known scam, and the intent is to change your bank account and routing number to another account that is operated by the scamming operators. Uber emphasized that they will NEVER call your phone number for any reason Accordingly, if anyone in Las Cruces, or for that matter, anywhere else has this happen, hang up immediately. Here in Las Cruces, the phone number that was used to contact me in order to phish my information is (575)323-0121. If you try to call this number back, the automated voice identifies as Uber. This too is a scam. You will attempt to enter your number, but the prompt will state this number is not recognized in Uber's database. The intent of this voice message is to convince the Uber driver that the phone number is above board. Per Uber support, it isn't. This activity is happening every single day, so what I am writing here might not be a revelation to some driving in the Las Cruces community. However, if only one other person who drives for Uber for a living reads this, and pays heed to it, I have done my job.
