When I reached home the fare was double.
Moneycontrol According to a report, when the father and son reached home, the cab driver asked them for Rs 648. This was double the price at which the cab was booked. When the driver was asked to show the screen to confirm the fare, a fare of Rs 648 was also being shown on the driver's phone screen. The Uber driver told that the fare increased due to waiting. He became suspicious of the Uber driver but being in a hurry, he did not argue and paid the fare. He also took a photo of the payment shown on the screen.

The photo opened the poll
When he went home and looked at the photo carefully, he realized that he had been cheated. The name in the photo was spelled wrong. Also, two icons of Uber app were visible on the screen. When Uber customer care was called, the driver said that he received only Rs 127.48.
