A taxi driver down on his luck was arrested last week after police discovered that he was taking Walt Disney World guests for the wrong type of ride. Orange County Sheriff’s office arrested Nankishore Ramkisoon after it was found out that he was posing as a Mears taxi driver, charging guests for a round trip ride when he picked him up and then leaving them stranded with only a false phone number to call.
Undercover cops busted Ramkisoon by posing as Disney guests who had called Mears for a round trip fare to Sea World. He told the cops that he knew what he was doing was wrong but he needed the money. The police had gotten wind of the con when guests started complaining about the scheme in November.
