They say a fool and his money are soon parted – but one person at the Ninoy Aquino National Airport was not fooled and held on to his money! Apparently some taxi drivers at the airport were trying to fool customers who they thought were “foreigners” into paying more than the acceptable fare.
Their meters were “rigged”. When Andy Maluche let on to the taxi driver he was aware of the price scam, the driver became nervous and said he could just pay the amount already on the meter for the whole trip.
Mr. Maluche posted details about the driver to spare other customers from getting ripped-off. He also noted that the guy who directed passengers to taxis appeared to be in on the whole scheme.
