The thing about the car sharing services is being aware. Let the driver ask for you by name first or you ask who they are picking up. Make sure the car tag, color, and picture match what you see on your phone. Pay attention; don't be on your phone talking. Only then should you get in the car. I heard these tips on a national news segment, and now I use them. I once had a car come for me with the correct tag and car color, but the driver was a male when it should have been a female. The male told me that he was driving today for his girlfriend, whose picture was listed. What! I didn't get into the car and I reported it to Uber. This was when I was still using Uber.
