UBER drivers caught ‘scamming’ the surge pricing system

They then accept another fare once surge pricing kicks in.

Rob told Justin and Kate it was all about getting more money for the trip.

‘It’s actually a scam that the drivers have concocted,’ he explained.

‘They’ve worked out how to rort the algorithm that UBER sets with the surge pricing.’
