I can understand why Uber company in South Africa continues to charge me incorrect charges on my bank account. They don't even make available the contact phone number and contact email.
On 26/11/2018 I have been charged R 25 for cancellation of the trip on 23/11/2018 made by the Driver Thulani at 12:29. He was driving Toyota corolla.
Again on 10/12/2018 they charged me R 34 for a trip cancelled by the driver Jabulani himself on 09/12/2018 at 15:27. He was driving the Toyota Corolla.
Today, 11/12/2018 I have been charged R 23.90 for the purpose of seeking help on 08/12/2018, the thing I did not do that on that day. I don't know where this help comes from.
I need to get the feedback as soon as possible because I am assuming my bank account is hacked.
Kind regards

The Uber app on your phone in Johannesburg shows you which car is available near you

The service works in both urban and rural areas. In Johannesburg, the service works as well as it does in most of South Africa's urban centres and many cities in sub-Saharan Africa, with fares starting at R2 000 (Rs.1,500) per ride.

However, the fares vary according to where the service is available. In the city centre, a car is available at the current rate for the first 30 minutes after you open the app. The rate will then increase to R7 000 per 30 minutes after that and to R10 000 per hour after that, with the first ride beginning at R1 600 (Rs.4,300).

There is a one-minute waiting period between the time you start to hail a car and the time the car arrives.

Johannesburg Taxi drivers are known to be very respectful. They will assist in any way and to make a special request. Uber and GrabTaxi make requests for safe fares and clean cars. Johannesburg taxi drivers are also very rich. Taxi drivers pay good wages and are well paid. You are also able to purchase taxi for other locations in the area.

When you look up the fare estimates for Uber in Johannesburg, City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality, Gauteng, South Africa - it looks fairly familiar. There is a base fare, a charge per mile and a charge per minute. It looks like the pricing structure you know well from all the miles you have logged in Johannesburg cabs. But Uber Fare Estimator actually uses a bit different pricing model. Uber taxis in Johannesburg charge riders per mile when moving, and per minute when idling. Even so, Uber rates do beat cab fares in Johannesburg.

It's also important to note that you don't have to tip your Uber taxi driver. And most people do tip their Johannesburg taxi driver.

If you add a tip of 20% to the Johannesburg cab fares, Uber looks like an even better deal and beats out other Johannesburg taxis' prices.
