Bahumi Mholongo could not believe that she almost got into an Uber or Bolt with a driver who did not match the profile. Noticing this, Bahumi made the decision to ditch the ride.
Understanding how dangerous it could have been if she had gotten into the car, Bahumi decided to share her experience on social media.
Bahumi told her story and reminded peeps to check that the driver matches the picture on the app, and if they don’t, to not get in the car. Those profiles are there for a reason, make use of them!
“I almost got into a car whose driver didn’t match the face, & when I called the number on the app, it went through to someone else. CHECK YOUR UBER & BOLT DRIVERS’ FACES. Regardless of how offended they get, ask them to kindly lower their masks, it’s for your safety. #Bolt #Uber”
Briefly News previously reported that Somizi's daughter Bahumi Mhlongo is celebrating her 26th birthday today. Bahumi is a YouTube sensation and because so many members of her family are part of the entertainment industry, she's considered a golden child.
Bahumi is paving the way for herself in the entertainment industry and she often gets comments about nepotism coming her way but she's soldiered on. She was given the role of a young Lebo Mathosa in Dream: The Lebo Mathosa Story and is doing a decent job with her YouTube channel.
It was also reported that when Shane Davison found a seller for his TV on Facebook Marketplace he did not expect to get scammed. Luckily for him, a kind Uber driver named Ernest came to the rescue and helped him get his TV back. Ernest was sent by the driver to pick up the TV from Shane after receiving proof of payment.
The payment seemed a bit sketchy as it did not contain a reference number. Ernest sent Shane the pin location for where he dropped off the TV when Shane told him he had not received the funds.
The payment was supposed to be immediate. Ernest realised that Shane had been scammed and quickly sprung into action to locate the TV in the area he dropped it off. He found the TV and contacted Shane.
