They recruited the prostitutes through online advertisements. Prospective prostitutes were informed that their work required them to offer sexual services. They were told to charge hourly fees of $300 to $600. The duo agreed to take a commission of either 25 or 30 per cent from these hourly fees for each client they secured for the escort. The monthly earnings of the social escort business ranged from $10,000 to $14,000.
The additional fee, to be paid to the driver, will be pro-rated according to when the passenger finally boards the ride. For example, if a passenger arrives 30 seconds after the wait-time charge kicks in, the fee will be 10 cents. Uber announced that this is to fulfill their aim of making riders and drivers have a smooth experience every time an Uber service is used.
Uber explained on its website that passengers will be sent a notification on their mobile devices when their drivers are reaching the location. It has advised customers to only make a booking when they are near the pick-up location. The 20-cent-per-minute charge applies to the UberX budget service.
I went back home early without doing overtime, but it was a no-show and no-call from SingTel. The next day when I called them, they apologised and made another appointment at night to call me but it was yet another no-show. Exasperated, I called SingTel on the 3rd day to arrange for technicians to just come to my house for rectification on my fibre. This time they told me I would need to pay $60 if there is proved to be no problem on my fibre, without doing the phone check.

How can you trust the PAP after this?
Because if a commuter were to travel from Novena to Orchard MRT for instance (which are 2 stations apart) one would need to pay between $0.70-$0.80/$0.90. But if one has to urgently use the toilet at Newton Station and taps back in to continue his/her journey to Orchard his/her fare would add up to an estimated cost of $1.40. In short SMRT would be making on average a minimum of 50% profit on the commuter just for using the toilet. And even if one manages to beat the 15 mins grace period to tap in to the Blue line to continue the journey to Orchard, it would mean a circular route will have to be used which would lead to travel fares of at least $1 or more, again a minimum of $0.30 profit by SBS/SMRT just for using the toilet.
