I have been both a charger and am now a mechanic. I can defiantly confirm that she was pulling a fast one as chargers can only capture Birds that needs charging. Mechanics can only capture damaged birds or those requiring transport to storage.
Stay on your toes and be wary of every word/actions of anyone else. Definitely my favorite is when I catch obvious thieves in the act and they actually stop when I tell them to. Then the B.S. comes pouring out about how it: -this one doesn't work, so I was moving it.
-can you unlock this for me because I already paid and it locked up on me but I don't have a debit card (or someone else paid for me )
-I'm taking it to a friend that works for "the scooter company"
Etc...you get the picture.
Most of the people that see the plethora of Birds in my truck and claim I'm cheating, do not even work for bird. One guy two nights ago did this as he was riding an obviously stolen/modified -hacked bird claiming to be a charger but did not have the app on his phone.
Anyways, Merry Christmas all. Stay safe out there.
