May 26, 2021 – Police in Guelph, Ont., are looking for two men who are reportedly using a fake taxi to approach people and try to scam them out of their debit or credit card information.

One of the men has been posing as a passenger in the taxi and claiming the driver wouldn’t let him pay cash due to COVID-19, said police spokesperson Scott Tracey. The man has been approaching people asking them to pay his bill with their debit or credit card, and saying he would reimburse them with cash.
