I've been laid off, that's what happened to me at my former job. The company isn't doing too well; four other people were let go too. They'll try to get me a job with this other company and some of my friends' jobs have openings. My old job said it's "temporary" but I doubt it and if they actually do want me back I'm not sure I'd take it.
That seriously blows, man. I hope that turns around for you ASAP, bro.
I think my Uber account got phished by someone posing as a support rep. It seemed weird at the time when I got the initial call, but I never had to deal with support because I've never had a problem in over a year of driving (quite the opposite, it's been overwhelming smooth and easy). I thought the guy on the phone sounded nervous and weird, but I chalked it up to someone being new or just bad on the phone. Looking back at it I'm a fucking idiot for divulging the information that I did that would give them access to my account. It happened on Sunday and I didn't drive for my three days of my weekend so I didn't notice anything weird until my direct deposit didn't hit my account on time. That's never happened before so it was strange, but I decided I'd give it a day. That same night as I was out working it cashed me out "automatically" twice, which has also never happened and I didn't initiate the instant payment option. Chalked that up to a bug in the system or something and figured I'd check with the local office on Monday. When it happened again tonight after only being online an hour I was definitely feeling anxious about it. That's when it hit me that it started just this week and I had a sinking feeling. I tried to get the message support going but I was getting no SMS response and I realized I was having the same problem when I was trying to call passengers and I was getting an automated message saying my number wasn't valid. My first thought when that happened was that it was just a result of a passenger with a bad phone (it happens) but two times is a coincidence and three times is a pattern. At this point I called the support line and laid out the whole issue, and they verified my number was not the one associated with my account. The support team contacted me back and will be in touch after they get into it, assuring me I will get my payment and this will be resolved. Just super fucking sucks to not be able to work this weekend (I really need to, ugh) and having this feeling of being robbed, essentially. What kind of piece of shit does that? Rhetorical question, I know, but it's infuriating to be taken for a ride like this, especially when I know better and just want to kick myself in the balls for being so stupid.
At least my primary job went well and I felt like I was crushing it today. Gotta work two late swing/graveyard shifts this week so I'll probably get some time to get paid to play Odyssey.
