Nowadays, it’s really hard to earn money to provide for our family’s needs. For some, they need to work double even triple to earn more while some have sideline jobs so that they could save money enough for future use.
Unfortunately, there are some people who don’t care how these innocent people get their money because all they want is to have money without exerting much effort.
Recently, a video of a woman stealing from an Uber Driver’s tip box had gone viral, making the netizens feel angry.
According to The Sun, the thief was named Gabrielle Canales or ‘Gabita’ on social media, an 18-year-old Instagram star.
As you would see in the footage, Gabrielle was really noticeable because of her outfit, but what’s really alarming is when the car comes to a stop, she (sitting in the middle seat) reaches inside the tip jar. Shockingly, she’s looking directly at the camera and smirked. She took a handful of cash and quickly got out of the car.
The driver, Mohammed Bhuiyan heard a commotion behind him, he looked back and realized all of his tips were taken.
According to The Metro, the video was originally posted in August but it went viral last weekend. According to The Sun, she said that she has just stolen only $5 and claims that she later returned it.
Uber was already notified of the incident and advised him to notify the police for further assistance.
“We understand your frustration with this experience. We’ve attempted to contact the rider by phone and email, but haven’t been able to resolve this issue. The rider responded to us and advised us that she didn’t steal your cash from the tip jar. If you believe the rider has your cash as captured from your dash cam and is refusing to return it, you may want to initiate a formal investigation via the police,” Uber told The Sun.
Gabrielle’s Uber account has been deactivated and she is banned from using the service.
