I guess that could make an Uber ride a whole lot more expensive!

According to News 10 abc, a Capital Region Uber driver is being charged with stealing a passenger’s credit card. The driver, Donald Smith Jr., reportedly took a credit card out of a purse that had been left in his Uber, and used it to buy some gas. News 10 abc reported he was held in Albany County Jail in lieu of bail.

I’ve taken Uber tons of times in the Capital Region and elsewhere, and never had an issue, so it totally stinks to see news reports like this. Not to mention, it totally sucks to lose your purse let alone have someone snag some of your money (which I’ve also dealt with). Sorry to the person who’s card got swiped!
