Gerry Posted January 31, 2019 Report Share Posted January 31, 2019 After going on the Tequila Express we took a cab home. Here's what happened: there were four of us so three had to go in the back. The driver "kindly" offered to put our friend'; bag in the trunk. He drove a short distance then said he needed to stop for gas and that his car ran on natural gas. He pulled into a gas station where there were several other cabs (I have no idea where it was). He told us we had to get out for safety reasons while the car was being filled up and directed us to a nearby set of tables and chairs. He drove out of sight and our view of the pumps was blocked by a tent and TV. As our friend was not paying for the cab, none of us realized until the next day that her wallet had been stolen. Within the hour of us being dropped off the card was used. One large transaction went through before the Canadian bank became suspicious and stopped further transactions.A cautionary tale! In more than 20 years this is the first time anything dishonest has happened to me in Mexico but the driver is obviously practiced at this so be warned. Prevention: don't put anything unlocked in the trunk and/or record the cab licence. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
