Uber fights off scammers every day. Here's how it learned the tricks

For a while, scammers have been getting away with fake rides on Uber, lining their own pockets with money from stolen credit cards, the company said.
...

Uber has been using machine-learning tools to keep pace with the crooks, relying on data coming in from millions of people using the app every day. Ting Chen, Uber's data science manager, said it has more than 600 different signals as red flags warning it of new scams.
See link to complete article above. Also, there is a video on how Uber detects GPS spoofing:

I suspect this is old news, and Uber has moved on (as have the fraudsters) to new techniques ... I wouldn't expect Uber to reveal their bleeding-edge scam abatement tech. Still, it's an interesting read IMO.

High turnover of non employees low skill low wage drivers is what uber wants
1000 drivers leave, 10,000 sign on
10,000 driver leave, 100,000 drivers sign on

Uber has a never ending supply of unemployable misfits willing to borrow $$$ against their only asset until they realize they’re suckers or become homeless.



Problem is those misfits are drunk, carrying guns & killing ubers clients
Hence ONE of the reason uber, the passengers, governments and insurance companies
are strong advocates of autonomous vehicles

Is it not tradition that the typical uber driver blames uber and its client passengers for all their problems? It’s a consistent trend throughout the entire uber people site, in every corner in every discussion in every state, city and country.

Uber driver never take responsibility for their decisions in life.
They feel they are constant victims

Uber won't disclose the scams they are concerned with. Just the problems they solved years ago, lol.
SOP for a corporation NOT to comment on current ongoing investigations.
Commenting on an active investigation would aid & abet those, or the entity, being scrutinized.
