App-based taxi driver drugged, defrauded
    2017-November-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AN app-based taxi driver was drugged by three suspects who swindled the driver out of 36,000 yuan (US$5,427) this September. The police recently busted the prime culprit, known as Guo, in Shenzhen.

Two of the suspects were busted soon after the driver, surnamed Luo, called the police in September, but Guo had been on the run until Monday when he was busted by police at a train station.

The patrolling police thought Guo seemed suspicious when he changed his direction abruptly upon spotting the police in the station. During interrogation, Guo appeared to be extremely nervous and the police eventually discovered that he was on the online wanted list for drugging and swindling Luo out of money with the other two suspects.

It was reported that Guo got into the driver’s car Sept. 22 and told him to drive from Foshan City to Jiangmen City.

During the drive, Guo introduced himself as a general manager surnamed Huang and then invited the driver to have lunch with him under the excuse of wanting to charter the car because of Luo’s good service.

Luo recalled that he had to accept the offer because the so-called General Manager Huang wanted to charter his car and even make a return trip. When they arrived at a restaurant, Guo asked another two men, who were also pretending to be rich and successful businessmen, to join the lunch.

The driver drank a glass of wine and a glass of beer prepared by the suspects inside the dining room. Luo then began suffering from a headache and couldn’t get sober. It was later discovered that the gang had put methamphetamine inside the wine.

After lunch, one of the two suspects suggested they play poker to kill the time. Feeling barely conscious, Luo joined the gambling games with the other three men and lost 17,000 yuan. He was then told to transfer money to the others from his WeChat wallet.

When Luo’s online wallet was empty, the suspects talked him into continuing the game to try and win back his money after withdrawing it from the bank. Luo told the others that he did not have any money on his bank card and the suspects told him to withdraw money from the ETC card that is used to pay toll fees because it is bonded with a credit card.

With not even the slightest defense, Luo told the suspects his card’s password. While one of the suspects, known as Huang, was withdrawing money at the bank, the other two continued to gamble with Luo.

When Huang came back with 19,000 yuan, the gang realized that they could not get any more money out of Luo, so they left the driver alone in the restaurant.

Luo became sober four hours later and gradually realized that he might have been defrauded, so he called the police. The two suspects were arrested soon after the police filed the case, but Guo ran away and was finally busted by Shenzhen police Monday.
