Taxi line in front of ConradNovember 25, 2013- The NY Post reports, “A crooked livery cabby was busted for pulling a credit-card switcheroo on his fares, often while they were drunk, and then using the stolen cards to pilfer thousands of dollars from their accounts, cops said. The hack was nabbed earlier this month for allegedly orchestrating the simple scam, where he’d pocket passengers’ credit and debit cards and then give them back one he’d already looted. Jawad Shabir has been linked to nine such alleged heists, but cops are investigating as many as 35 reported incidents.”
