Man Charged $18,000 for Uber Ride

A Toronto man was charged a whopping $18,518.50 for a five-mile ride on Friday that should've cost him about $10. Instagram user votethehish posted the receipt for his ride for the amount in Canadian currency, which comes out to $14,412 in U.S. dollars. The screenshot quickly went viral and Uber has since acknowledged its mistake. "There was an error here and it has been resolved," the company said in a statement. "We have provided a full refund to this rider and apologized to him for this experience. We have safeguards in place to help prevent something like this from happening, and we are working to understand how this occurred."
