Twin Plate and Forged Taximeter Scam


Thursday, November 17, 2016

Lukas Vinkler, a citizen of the Czech Republic, working for a multi-national company, arrived in Istanbul on October 4th, 2016 to attend the company's meeting in Turkey. The taxi fare between Ataturk Airport and Tarabya which Vinkler used many times before had to be about 80 TRY but the taximeter displayed 345 TRY. Vinkler objected to it but could not agree with the pirate taxi driver because he didn't speak English. Vinkler paid 350 TRY in cash, received 5 TRY back in change with a receipt then got off the car. He didn't get a reply to the complaint e-mail he had sent to Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
