Uber Accidentally Sent a Woman a Bill for $12,000

For $12,000, you could fly business class from New York to London, make a down payment on a Tesla — or you could take an Uber six miles from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Gothamist reports that one unlucky Uber rider received an email that the company attempted to charge her $16,000, somehow took care of $4,000, and she had an unpaid balance of $12,000. Yes, for one Uber ride. The good news is that the email never actually resulted in any kind of charge for the ride, which should have cost Jaime Hessel only $41.
