Los Angeles residents receive mysterious Uber Eats deliveries

(KTLA) – A Los Angeles neighborhood has been bombarded with Uber Eats deliveries that residents didn’t order or buy.

The deliveries began about two weeks ago and appear to be focused on the Range View Avenue area of ​​the Highland Park neighborhood. They appear at all times.

One man said he received 13 deliveries in one day, none of which he ordered. His neighbors had similar stories.

Caroline Aguirre said she received items from “low-fat milk, to Danish, to chicken McNuggets, French fries, egg croissants.”

The free food was “a nice treat at first,” said William Neal, “then when it suddenly became too much food, we’d try to find places to donate it or give it away.”

“It was bag after bag after bag, sometimes three at a time, 3 in the morning, 5 in the afternoon,” he added.

One neighbor even put a “no delivery” sign on the front door, but the surprises were up to 10 bags a day.

Residents say the names on the orders, primarily fast food, don’t match anyone who lives there. Some of the neighborhood’s residents don’t even have Uber Eats accounts.

Neighbors told KTLA that other delivery services, such as DoorDash and Postmates, were also involved, though it was too difficult to reach any customer service representatives to learn more.

Based in San Francisco Uber told the Los Angeles Times that the company has launched an investigation into the bizarre, relentless deliveries.
