17 year old boy learns how to monetize illegal immigrants with Lyft. Charging $250 per person for a ride seemed like a great idea but he didn’t own a car, so he used his mom’s credit card to pay for the lyft. The driver wasn’t charged, since he didn’t know anything and was just doing his job. You can read the local article here.
The boy is being charged with smuggling of persons, a third-degree felony. The illegal immigrants were also detained and they were up here from Guatemala.
You got the hand it to the kid, there isn’t info on why they needed a ride and to where, but the kid basically learned to work from home at 17 by getting paid big money by using Lyft’s service. Pretty genius if you ask me. To bad it was all illegal so it didn’t last long. I wonder if he got to keep the money from the Guatemalans?
There may even be others doing this, but at least border patrol knows about it now.

***I know the kid’s name is out there, but I don’t want to push it. He’s a young man that doesn’t need to be dragged out more than he already is. Besides it was the illegal immigrants that REALLY broke the law. The kid just wanted to make money and help them. I reserve the right to judgement on him though because it could turn out that he was doing some weird things to them, we will see.***
