Con man fake taxi driver targeting elderly passengers leaving Peterborough City Hospital


Cambridgeshire Police are urging members of the public to get in contact if they have been the victim of a fraudulent taxi driver.


There have been two reports of a man driving a black Skoda who has been waiting at the entrance to Peterborough City Hospital and posing as a taxi driver.

He has then hugely overcharged the vulnerable victims for their journeys and demanded payment.

PC Alex Boyle said: “This man is clearly targeting elderly people who have visited the hospital and are just looking to get home. If you have been a victim of this please come forward as it will help us build a picture of who he is and bring him to justice.


“If you can, use pre-paid taxis and make sure the car you are getting in is licensed correctly. If you are unsure ask a member of staff at the hospital who will help you get home.”


Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting 35/10945/20 or report online at www.cambs.police.uk/report.
