Been in Prague last weekend and had a drink with a girl who deals with fake Uber and Bolt (taxi) profiles. She has 40 of them! I am thinking: that is serious because doing it with taxis (opening accounts on random people and putting unknown and unknowable people to drive making a cut), isn't just about some people's cash or working around laws. It directly endangers lives and get innocent people the accounts were opened in names of, at risk of going to jail if these "ghost drivers" get into fatal accidents and evaporate.


If that happens and they are getting away with it, we at Upwork have to be very cautious. People have absolutely no moral barriers these days as long there is some cash to make.
