Scam warning: taxi scheme

Beware of the “taxi scam” 

In the past week, four victims have fallen prey to what is known as the 'taxi scam.' Here’s how it works: 

  • Someone pretending to be a taxi passenger approaches you and claims that the driver won’t accept a debit card as payment for their ride. 
  • The supposed passenger asks you to give the driver your own card, promising to give you cash in return. 
  • The supposed driver, who is also a scammer, steals your card after you’ve typed in your PIN, and hands back a fake card. 
  • One recent victim from the Ezra Avenue area in Waterloo lost almost $1,000 from their bank account.
