How do I Stop Uber from SPAMMING me Day and Night :(

A while back I was thinking of doing the Uber ride sharing thing and signed-up.
But then got too busy and decided against doing it.
However, ever since Uber SPAMS me with emails and Text messages on DAILY basis :(
I have tried Unsubscribing from their emails and NO Good.
I have tried Contacting them from their Web Site but there are NO Contact info on their Site :(
So does anyone know how do we get Uber to STOP SPAMMING us to death :(
And dont we have laws against companies sending emails or SMS without means of Un-Subscribing! Thanks.

If you hunt enough you should be able to locate a local Uber office and give them a piece of your mind

1st, there is NO such a thing as a "locate a local Uber office".
2nd, what so called Local People there are for Uber have as much control over Uber sending you SPAM email after another as local Delta employees have to do with the tiny Coach seats on Delta that squeeze you in like an Animal, or local United Healthcare employees have over UH charging you exorbitant Monthly Premium fees and back breaking Deductibles, Cop-pays, etc rip-offs. etc. etc.

Yes, I do not think there is such a thing as "locate a local Uber office" at all. Everything is run from the HQ in Silicon Valley. And you are right, what local presence they have, just checks your Car and gives you tips on what to do and not when driving, etc.. So giving the local Uber guys a piece of your mind wont do a thing.

Yes, I totally agree. I have been an Anoox member for Years now. And the more I use it the more amazed I am by how empowering COOL this non-profit social network is! But I always worry that they go out of business since they are non-profit in face of the MEGA for profit Giants of Todays World which are Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.. How do they stay alive and keep growing too, is amazing. My Hat off to these guys on Anoox :)

I think that you can write support to uber, and you can also write an official letter to uberโ€™s legal address asking for explanations

well that is the problem. That is Uber does not have a Support email to write to a Support number to call. Really amazing that a company that is valued at $50-Bill+ does not have a Support line/email :(
Anyway, I deal with this problem by removing the Uber App from my Mobile. Although that was not my preferred rout to go.

Hey Sarah,
The same thing happens to me all the time.
Since you have an account with them you need to delete your account.
Here's how you do it.

Step 1: Launch the app, and make sure you're signed in to your account.
Step 2: At the top left of the screen, tap on the menu icon.
Step 3: Once the menu pops up, tap Settings.
Step 4: Then tap, Privacy Settings.
Step 5: Then tap Delete Your Account.

Once the account is deleted there shouldn't be any contact info for them to keep spamming you.
Hope it helps!

Something I forgot to say....Just REMOVING the app won't do it. You need to delete your account. The app is just an application on your phone/device. The account is in Uber's info database. You need to remove your info from their database. The only way to do that is delete your account.

Sarah, I had the same issue. That is I was getting like 5 emails per Day and 2 SMS per Day from Uber and no matter how many times I hit the unsubscribe link, it did not stop. So finally what I did was to uninstall the Uber App from my Mobile. This seems to have done the trick.
Cheers ๐Ÿคฃ

By law in the U.S. every subscription type email they send to you MUST have two things. One, a way to UNsubscribe that works, and, two, a PHYSICAL ADDRESS (not PO box) in the email.

If they don't, and won't stop, you should probably see an attorney and bring a lawsuit against them.

Well 1st issue is how can we possibly Sue Uber whom has Billions of Dollars and an Army of lawyers! They probably will end up counter Suing and crush us little People well just like little People we are with their Multi Billion Dollar war chest and Army of lawyers.
2nd, of as a working Mom I do not have time desire to Sue anyone less a Goliath like Uber. Just wish there was a link on their emails or an 800 number to call to stop these emails.
Also it is the SMS they send. ooooh :(

That is why you hire an attorney. Initial consultations are normally free, so it would not cost you anything but a little time to find out whether it is feasible to sue them. People have sued corporations for less and won, corporations much bigger than Uber is.

Are you NUTS! 1st, NO attorney hired on free consultation basis is going to want to take on a VC Wall Street behemoth. Moreover this is really the Job of Government and AGs to stop such egregious acts by Wall Street behemoths since we little People have NO comparable resources to take on the wrong doing Wall Street behemoths such as Uber or Big Pharma, Big Insurance, etc. screwing US. Moreover as a working Mom I do not have time to be party to such action. I just want it STOPPED.

Apparently you CANNOT read. I said 'FIRST consultation.' LEARN to read.

It may be the job of the government, but according to the Constitution YOU are the government.

You want it stopped, but instead of DOING something, all you are doing is MAKING EXCUSES. Either do something to make it happen. or QUIT WHINING like a baby.

Ha! We are the Government! We are the Government via our reps in Congress and Government institutions and laws they put into place to server us and protect us. So we are the Government is not just a Word but series of People and Laws we put into place to server "We the People".
