A woman named Dominique posted a series of videos on TikTok where she talked about how a currency conversion screw-up really messed up her day. Dominique took an Uber ride in Costa Rica and what should have been a $54 dollar ride cost her almost $30,000. • VIDEO
… Her video showed a bunch of screenshots showing the grand total of her ill-fated Uber journey and he attempts to get in touch with someone at the company to get help. She shared that when she contacted her financial institution (a credit union) they said there was nothing they could do about it “at the moment”.
… She added that Uber support wasn’t a lot of help and “all that I was able to get from them is that it was my bank’s fault and that I needed to check with my bank on why they did not convert it or charge me in the correct currency.”
… After about four days of having no funds the charge was suddenly fixed and the charge was reversed.
