KL Taxi Driver....Girls please read this!!!!
Please take a few minutes to read this and please pass it on to every
female you know and care about.. On Saturday, 4th July 2009 at 6:45pm
my sister boarded a taxi at the Wangsa Maju LRT to return home. At the
end of the road, the taxi driver stopped to pick up another male
passenger who seemed to be going off the same direction. Well, my
sister didn't suspect anything funny as they looked genuine, and he
was going her direction and she was in a hurry.. Little did she
suspect that she was in for a huge trauma! But when she asked the taxi
driver to turn into the junction where she lives, the driver pretended
to miss it and the male passenger said that since they were already
nearer to his place, why not send him off first and the driver
politely asked my sister if that's ok and she thought she was doing a
good deed! As soon as they got to the end of the housing area next to
the big walls of the Academy TV3, the male passenger, locked all the
doors and leapt to the back and held a knife at her throat and forced
her to bend her head down - she had to give up her jewelry, and the
$200 cash she had. Not satisfied with only that much, they threatened
for more so they drove off to Maybank Jln Setapak and took out
everything she had that was around 7:30pm ....The driver returned the
card after clearing the account! Then they drove off to the back area
of Tasik Titiwangsa and dropped her off there. Left her with only $10
and ask her to take another taxi home! My sister had to walk a long
way back to the main road to get help and she is really traumatised by
all these. Later at the police station we found out that she was
victim #3 that same day! Let's remind everyone we know, as it could
easily happen to us too or to anyone we care about.
The lesson to be learnt here:
1.. always check the plate # BEFORE you board a taxi.
2. always check the other things that a taxi should have - the
driver's ID, the inside number etc, etc.
3. NEVER allow the driver to pick up another passenger - No matter
what! If they do, get off and just pay the man.
4. avoid taking the taxi alone, if you can.
5. be extra careful if it is after office hours.
