Share Canberra's trusted news:
WE were a little surprised to see ads on facebook promising the opportunity to earn $500 this weekend if we were to sign up as UberX drivers.

So having inquired as to what the ad was about we’ve had this reply:
No, we haven’t launched in Canberra yet, sorry for the confusion
