Mr. Jp Muduli
"Everyone be aware of Uber drivers who are trapping customers in a new way. You could be one of the victim of this . On 24th November I had booked cab for Bengaluru airport with payment method PayTm . On the way before the toll gate the driver stopped car side of the road saying he need cash as payment method to pay the toll and when I disagreed he said he can't go further . I was really hopeless that time as I had to catch the flight in next 20 minutes . So after an argument with him, I agreed to pay by cash and he said he will cancel the PayTm payment which will be transferred back to my account after 15 minutes of trip completion .
After completion of the trip I paid by cash 871 and also same amount got deducted from my PayTm . After waiting for long time before my flight departure, I contacted Uber support and reported about this issue . They completely denied to help with this as well as not even shared the contact number of the driver so that I could reach him . "At least they could have engage both me and driver to conference to investigate this ugly situation " .So this is kind of encouragement for drivers to do such things repeatedly. At end I lost extra 871 and both Uber and the driver took double amount and cheated me as a customer . This can happen to you also , so be careful of Uber ride think twice before booking . That was my last trip with Uber ended my journey after 2 years of being a customer with a worse and disgusting experience ."
