I have never had any dealings with uber other than to criticise them on here but today I have had an email from them asking me to rate their services :shock:

1) how come they have our business email address in their database as I have never given it to them ?

2) Having never downloaded the app how do they know I am a customer ?

I suspect they harvest email addresses, especially those association with the taxi/PH trade.
