    Just talked to my son about this case; he's the one who graduated from high school with Kenzie. He knew her, but didn't hang out with her. I believe they were on swim team together because that's co-ed. Knew her older brother better. Anyway, he indicated that she was pretty naive and a little ditzy. Now, he hasn't seen her in almost five years and a lot can change when a kid goes away to college. He said he definitely knew college girls who sent suggestive pics in exchange for money. When I asked him why any guy would do that when you could look at any pics on the internet for free, he said he didn't have a clue but he knew it happened.

    They can also change and update new destination once the pax gets in the car.

    interesting question and i'm definitely not very tech savvy, but i'm thinking no. In order for him to do that he'd either have to hack into other people's Lyft accounts (which would've been alerted by those people by now i'm sure), or have previously set up fake accounts.

    When you sign up for Lyft you provide email and CC number. A lot of people have multiple CCs, but they would all have his name on them. Unless he used stolen CCs to sign up with, which again i think would probably have been discovered by now. In these cases I'm also pretty sure that he would need to have burner phones in various locations. When you request a ride you get information on your driver and the ETA. There's a map with a dot that shows your driver's location and you can track their whole journey to you and then you get notification when they arrive. So if he was sitting in the park, in order to fake a ride he would need to use his phone or some other device to hack into one of his burner phones in another location in order to request the ride. (I'm pretty sure).

    Hackers always surprise me though and like i said i'm not the most techy person so someone correct me if i'm wrong. But just from what i understand, it seems an unlikely scenario.

    Nevermind, found my answer! It most certainly can be done, now I wonder if the original location gets saved and shows it was updated with a new destination.

    I can totally see your first situation, and the urgency of meeting someone at that early hour.
