UberX has been plagued with complaints since it launched in the United States, in December 2016.
It is not clear how many drivers have been affected by the fake taxis.
Uber says that it will not comment on specific allegations.
Uber has launched a number of investigations into fake taxi drivers, including one by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which investigated allegations that UberX was illegally using drivers to sell its cars.
Uber also says that its drivers are trained to use the best technology to protect riders and passengers.
