- Shane Davison took to Facebook's #ImStaying group to thank Ernest the Uber driver for helping him after he was scammed
- After realising that Shane had been scammed by a buyer who sent him to pick up a TV, Ernest tried his best to help
- Ernest drove around and eventually located the TV, and Shane then sold it to him at a fraction of the price
When Shane Davison found a seller for his TV on Facebook Marketplace he did not expect to get scammed. Luckily for him, a kind Uber driver named Ernest came to the rescue and helped him get his TV back.
Ernest was sent by the driver to pick up the TV from Shane after receiving proof of payment. The payment seemed a bit sketchy as it did not contain a reference number. Ernest sent Shane the pin location for where he dropped off the TV when Shane told him he had not received the funds.

The payment was supposed to be immediate. Ernest realised that Shane had been scammed and quickly sprung into action to locate the TV in the area he dropped it off. He found the TV and contacted Shane.

"We ended up meeting at Yeoville police station where two of the sergeants escorted us to the pawnshop where we got the TV back. All thanks to Ernest the Uber driver. And at the end of the day, we sold the TV to Ernest at a quarter of the price we tried to sell it online.
"For all the effort and time it took Ernest to drive around and look for the TV as well as the Sergeants at Yeoville Police station, you guys are the reason #ImStaying #imstayingpositive."
