Uber mistakenly charges riders 100 times the price on their receipts

Uber’s app has been hit with its second major glitch in as many weeks.

After sending drivers do destinations before picking up any passengers, riders complained on Twitter this week that they were being charged up to 100 times their originally quoted fare, making quick trips cost more than $1,000 in some cases.

The Washington Post first reported on the glitch, and the newspaper’s social-media director chimed in to say he was also affected, despite his receipt showing a much smaller fare.

“Among the lessons: Don’t link Uber to your debit card,” he followed up. “That money was immediately pulled from my checking account and is still not restored. It could take more than a day for Chase to restore it.”
