26-year-old clerk Olivia Ong has lodged a police report over fraudulent transactions charged to her debit card by Uber amounting to S$1050.29.
Ong said that she checked her bank account statement a few days ago and was shocked to find that between the 24th and 26th of this month, she was charged for Uber trips in Europe, the United States and Canada.
“Those who take Uber, be careful. Uber is very skillful, I can go to Europe, USA and Canada in 3 days. If I hadn’t checked my bank account and cancelled my debit card, Uber would still be deducting fees from me card. Altogether S$1050.29 was deducted from me wrongfully and one more tansaction is pending. I’ve lodged a police report.”
Ong added that she has “never been to these places”, and “couldn’t have gone to Europe and America in just 3 days.”
She wants to warn others who pay for PHV service by card to make sure that their card details are not being misused.
