Great articles around Fraud on Ridester.com.  Here's Brett.

"Hey there, Brett here again with Ridester.com.

As part of my morning routine, I browse the rideshare networking groups I'm a part of. This helps me find new ways to drive smarter and make more money, so I can share those tips with you. 

This morning, one thing caught my eye that I wanted to IMMEDIATELY make every driver aware of. It's an issue that riders have begun taking advantage of, causing Uber to lose money and in some cases, deactivate innocent drivers who've done nothing wrong.

The problem? Uber fraud.

New posts and photos circulating social media show riders how to report false incidents to Uber to get a refund on their ride in return. 

There's a bunch of different ways to fraudulently rip off Uber, which we've compiled into a big list so you know what to look for, and be prepared if it happens to you.

Check out the links below for everything you need to know about Uber fraud, and how to protect yourself against it. One of the best ways is to get a dash cam, which we go into more detail with in the link below.

    Well drivers fraud are tainting the service as well. I usually order short rides on a daily basis and about half of them try to trick me into canceling my ride, while lately they (drivers) seem to be messing with GPS, happering and disappearing from map. It's going down hill, seems the problem was not lack of innovation in the sector.
