Toronto Police Detectives believe a group of cab drivers have stolen dozens of bank cards from late-night riders and emptied their accounts over the past month. Since November, taxi drivers have allegedly used bogus debit machines to swipe data from a customer’s debit or credit card, then handed the customer a fake card that looked similar to their own. By Thursday, cab customers were coming complaining almost daily and TD Bank alone had filed 65 claims. The scam has not been confined to just one taxi company.
Is this just another reason to go Uber? Not only is it cheaper, but you won’t get scammed?
