The mystery of Uber Eats is revealed as residents send dozens of free deliveries

LOS ANGELES, CA – Residents in the Los Angeles area have been inundated with unwanted fast food deliveries from Uber Eats arriving at all hours of the day, prompting an investigation by the food delivery company.

“Before you knew it, the whole street was lined with bags of McDonald’s and Starbucks, and no one could explain where it was from,” said Morgan Currier, who has received about 30 mystery deliveries. “People were getting 30 to 40 orders.”

Residents say the food haul started about three weeks ago and was mostly food from McDonalds, Taco Bell and Starbucks.

Resident William Neal initially enjoyed the free food, but quickly grew tired of the deliveries because the meals sent to his home were the same.

“About 80% of the time, it was one McCrispie chicken,” Neal told Eyewitness News.

When asked if he liked sandwiches, he said, “I don’t know how I feel about them now.” He added that they are now “haunting my dreams.”

It is not yet known who pays for the delivery of products.

An Uber spokesperson told us the company has launched an investigation and “took action against a number of accounts.”

Residents say they tried to call the phones attached to the orders, but the numbers were disconnected. They are happy that every order includes tips for delivery people.

Unfortunately, many of the people who received food deliveries were unable to enjoy them.

“Most of us here are vegetarians, so we couldn’t eat them,” said MJ Lat. “We would give them to contractors on the street or just take them to this little local food pantry.”
