Unscrupulous Cab Drivers

Posted on 13th November, 2018

A neighbour recently heard from someone who just had all her bank accounts emptied after she paid a taxi driver with her debit card. She wanted to pay with her credit card but he asked for another method because he didn’t want to pay the 4% visa fee.


The Police advise: whenever you are asked to use debit instead of credit for whatever reason, first fully enter in the wrong PIN. If it is a counterfeit machine it will pseudo process the payment and produce a receipt. An authentic machine will reject the PIN and request a “try again” of some sort.


Help spread the word, as the police say this type of fraud is becoming increasingly prevalent.


Be safe out there,especially as we approach the festive season
