A woman was caught on camera getting out of an Uber and taking her driver's tip jar along with her.
The incident was all caught on camera as the driver dropped off a group of friends in New York City. The trio then runs across the street with the driver seemingly unaware of what just happened.
Moments later, he notices something unusual out of the corner of his eye - that his tip jar is entirely empty.
According to the driver, Uber responded with a canned response when he emailed them about the incident.
'We understand your frustration with this experience. We’ve attempted to contact the rider by phone and email, but haven’t been able to resolve this issue. The rider responded to us and advised us that she didn't steal your cash from the tip jar. If you believe the rider has your cash as captured from your dash cam and is refusing to return it, you may want to initiate a formal investigation via the police.'
The driver says he was too busy working to file a police report after the video was filmed in August of this year. However, Uber tell DailyMail.com they have been in contact with the man to offer support.
Meanwhile, the thief has since had her account deactivated by the ride-sharing company and is no longer allowed to used the service.

Three things: 1. Shame on her! 2. Dumb place to put your tip money. Needs a more secure box (no big hole.) 3. What on earth was she wearing?— Golden Girl (@goldengrl67) November 7, 2017
