Drivers and riders are used to various scams on the Uber platform but this one is hitting new drivers particularly hard. Apparently the scam has hit thousands of ride-hail drivers, and millions of dollars have been diverted from their accounts to con-artists who act as an Uber representative.

Long story short, do not give out your Uber credentials (password, authentication code) to anyone! Seems obvious, but apparently not...

    Im sorry but to give your PW and then the authentication code that uber sends to your phone to a random stranger is just dumb. These scams are good - weed out the dumb drivers.

    Interesting that they are targeting Uber drivers and not Lyft drivers. Lyft did say they now start every phone call from them with an automated message so if you do not hear that message the call is fake.

    and of course Uber is not doing anything to help drivers out. Even just a warning of this scam to all drivers would be helpful.

      Independent contractors.  Drivers don't want to be told what to do
