How Much Do Flight Attendants Get Paid For Pushing Credit Card Applications? – Doctor of Credit

South Carolina college student murdered after getting into car she thought was her Uber: cops – NY Daily News

This is so sad and it is something I have been seeing more and more often.  Especially human traffickers trying to grab girls.  Please be sure to check the plates on the car and have them say your name before getting in.  I got in the wrong Uber in NYC because the last 2 digits of the license plate were different.  The make, color, and most of the plate matched perfectly so be diligent.  And even if you do everything right you can still get a scare so just be diligent when using ride shares or even in cabs.
