A man jumped in to stop her before she got in the car.

OCEAN BEACH, Calif. – A California man is warning users of a popular ride sharing service to be extremely careful about who you trust with your safety.

The man told KGTV that he watched a drunk woman stumble out of a bar near his home and attempt to get in to a truck that pulled up beside her.

“And she says, ‘Are you my Uber?” he said. “I knew for a fact his older model, beat up truck wasn’t an Uber and I didn’t see the Uber emblem on his windshield. And he said, ‘Yes, I am.”

At that point, the man says he jumped into action and stopped the woman from getting into the man’s truck.

He says he walked her home and made sure she got inside. It was then that he noticed the truck had followed them.

Now, he is warning everyone to watch out for fake drivers and say something you see someone trying to prey on a vulnerable person.
