Scam Alert: Uber / Lyft Scam

Licensed Investigator Drone Banner

The Scam:

From New York City to Los Angeles, some Uber and Lyft drivers have been exploiting the platform’s protection of drivers and their vehicles by claiming passengers got sick and vomited in the car – thus damaging the vehicle and requiring a “cleaning fee”. This automatically charged fee, often amounting to over $250.00 can be incredibly difficult to fight or prove otherwise, as there’s no way for the passenger to document their trip after they’ve already left the vehicle – finding the surprising charge often hours later. Passengers can attempt to contact the company or submit a complaint, but rarely do these methods result in anything more than an automated email response.

This fraud scheme has become prevalent enough in Los Angeles and beyond to necessitate some form of combative recourse. At Paramount Investigative Services, we strive to provide our clients with the information they need to choose their next course of action – whether within the legal system or otherwise.

As the number of Uber frauds are on the rise, costing passengers hundreds more than they anticipated, Paramount Investigative Services has created a limited-time scam investigations service, with a holiday special offer of a one-time $250 fee for the scam artist’s name, address, and additional personal information. While we don’t encourage vigilantism, we do encourage victims of the Uber scam to take action that will result in their peace of mind.

Between 24 and 48 hours after our investigator’s contact, you’ll receive the information you need to make your next move! Rarely do other private detectives offer turnaround times as fast or efficient as us, nor do they offer their services at such an affordable rate.
