Cabbie banned after credit card fraud
A taxi driver facing a slew of offences including credit card fraud has had his application for the redemption of his licence rejected.
In addition to allegedly using a credit and debit card copier to defraud his unwitting passengers, Sydney taxi driver Wail Al-Najjar also faces conviction for assaulting a member of airport security staff for "being rude".
He is also accused of defrauding the chairman of the Rice Marketing Board using his credit card machine.
The Courier Mail reports that he was nabbed by police after a string of complaints from his customers.
Robin Handley, deputy president of the Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT), said in his findings, commented: "The police [allegedly] found a machine in his taxi for copying credit cards. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and strenuously denies the allegations made against him."
Meanwhile, the Herald Sun has also reported this week that 23-year-old cabbie Gurmeet Singh has been made to pay $7,500 compensation and fines after defrauding several elderly customers in Melbourne.
