Uber says image showing surge pricing during Melbourne storm is a photoshopped fake

Uber said an image showing a huge price surge during massive storms which have left Melbourne struggling with floods and torrential rain is a photoshopped fake.

One angry commuter posted an image they said is a trip to the airport from the city's central business district.

But an Uber spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia the image is not genuine.

'This receipt appears to be an obvious photoshop job,' the spokesperson said in a statement.

'It is missing the booking fee line item, which is standard on normal Uber receipts. The base fare of $91.55 can only be accurate if was a 3+ hour trip to the airport given our time and distance rates on uberX.
