"NBC Bay Area went undercover and joined a network of messaging apps and chatrooms, where we found brokers hawking Uber and Lyft driver accounts. It costs between $100 and $200 a week to rent a black market account, and around $800 to buy one. Clients pay the brokers to set up the accounts, and the renters then link to their bank accounts. Any money they make driving is theirs to keep."
So basically, your Uber or Lyft driver could be a hard criminal and you have no way to verify before getting in their car. Uber and Lyft really need to figure this one out!!
