Woman was charged more than S$1.3k in fares for Uber rides she didn’t take.



Jenna lim was shocked when she checked her bank account statement online. She discovered that she was charged a total of S$1.3k for uber rides she didn’t took.

Here’s what she wrote in the post:

Guys, please be careful when adding your debit or credit card to Uber Account. This is what I woke up to. A negative amount in my bank account.

 I got a huge shocked and went to check on my transactions. Turns out all transactions were made from Uber and amount is in USD. More than 30 transactions were made from 13 November amounting to a total of $1.3k +. It would have been worse if I didn’t check my bank statement. Just 5 days and 1.3k gone. Wow I can’t believe that Uber’s privacy security is so bad???

I believe someone from the US hacked into Uber’s security system and attained my bank account info. Also, I can’t even delete the card payment in Uber Account. This is super ridiculous. So friends, please try to use cash to pay for your trips instead.

Lost all my trust in Uber already.. really shocking experience…..


Here are the screenshots she took that reveal transactions being made from 16 Nov to 19 Nov.
