Uber Refuses To Refund Passenger Who Got Cheated By The Driver, So He Shares His Shocking Photos Online

Uber has become a phenomenon is the last few years, revolutionizing the ways many of us travel and shaking up the entire local transport industry. However despite its conveniences there are inevitably drawbacks, as this passenger found out to their cost.

Taking an Uber ride in Las Vegas, things turned from bad to worse for the user, who later uploaded snippets of a conversation with the company on Imgur.

The incident shows that while Uber is great for quick and easy trips around town at an unbeatable price, it does seem quite easy for drivers to charge a cleaning fee on their word and a blurry photo or two. While it is of course possible that the user did indeed have some incontinence issues, the accusation and the evidence provided leave plenty of room for dispute and put the user at risk of a dishonest or just plain grumpy driver taking them quite literally to the cleaners.

Scroll down below to check out how the incident unfolded, and feel free to join the discussion in the comments!

I'm surprised there wasn't urine in the driver's seat

....true and as far as that goes, we cant tell if that photo is from the back seat or the front seat. Driver may be trying to collect for the mess THEY made. :)

So where is the cleaning invoice from the company that cleaned the seat? I doubt one was provided and I doubt if that cleaning service were contacted they would deny having touched this car.

I don't trust those so-called 'disrupting' companies that use self employed people as employees. That's not sharing economy for common people. It just uncontrolled, low wage economy with an aura of being cool. The're just cheap but someone has to pay for it, mostly the employee or the taxpayer.

There are definitely good and bad aspects of it. I think certainly Uber is going down the drain. I've always used Lyft, and I have never had a problem with them. The key to everything is finding the right balance, and so often most companies allow greed to take over.
