  • Unauthorized charges.
  • Failure to pay drivers.
  • Undelivered food orders.
  • Driver issues characterized by a no-show, delayed pick-ups, rudeness, and failing to take the customer to the requested location.

One customer narrates his frustrating experience with Lyft in his video review, where he described the unpleasant situation with Lyft customer service and his lost phone. Though he reacted immediately and tried calling the driver, he received no response.

The man spent some time searching online for a Lyft customer service phone number, and when he called, the representative informed that it was not the correct number for lost and found issues. 

Time is of the essence in responding to these situations as its possible other riders could enter the car and possibly steal the phone. I did everything in my power to immediately contact the driver and Lyft only to be ignored.

Even after the Lyft customer representative assured him that they would help him to get his phone back by opening a case and attempting to call the driver, the customer did not get his phone back 

The reviewer felt that the driver had bad intent and was extremely angry that Lyft did the bare minimum to provide him with the help he needed.

Lost property, especially phones, is among the most widespread cases described in Lyft reviews. People are not satisfied with Lyft customer service that could care much in their opinion. For example, in a similar incident, another reviewer (#4613043) claims that 

You guys are horrible with customer service issues because you guys dont have a real Customer service center.

To find their phone became “a 2 day process for something that shouldve took an hour tops.”
