“Vomit fraud,” a scam you may have heard about on social media which is happening alot in Miami

  Passengers request Uber cars, which deliver them to their destination and soon the passenger receives a note from Uber reporting an “adjustment” in the bill and an extra charge that can range from $80 to $150, depending on the driver’s degree of crookedness.

That’s what happened to an el Nuevo Herald journalist who called an Uber ride to the airport. The driver never showed up, so she canceled that request and asked for another. When she checked her email the next day, she learned Uber had charged her $16 for the trip that never took place, $6 for canceling it and a $150 cleanup fee.

When she complained, Uber sent her an email saying the driver “reported an incident during the trip” and attached two photos of the supposed vomit in a car seat.

The journalist sent Uber cellphone screenshots of the canceled trip, plus the name of the driver and license plate number of the vehicle that did take her to the airport. After four emails to Uber, the company agreed with the appeal.
