Victim of Taxi Scam

By Mariyam Sana Feb 08,2022

Dear Hon Consul Mr Nihat Boytuzun,

We came to Turkey on 31st Jan 2022 and visited Istanbul,  which was planned to be the last stop of our 2 weeks vacation here in  Turkey. 

We took a flight from Izmir to Istanbul and took the bus service from Airport to Aksaray. Since our hotel was far to walk to, we took a taxi at the bus stop and the bus driver forcefully took our wallets and removed all the money and then pretended to put it all back in and later refused for the trip. We took another taxi from the same bus stop and the driver repeated the same and also charged us $5 for the trip.

When we came to the hotel we realised that 300$ was missing from our wallet. Since we have already used up all our card limits and is unlikely to have necessary cash till end of our trip, planned for this Friday, we would appreciate if you can provide us a solution for the taxi scam which we were a victim of.

Appreciate it if you can revert back to us as soon as possible.

Kind Regards
