Manager reported on a story of a “greedy” Bangkok taxi driver taking advantage of two passengers. 

But these were not foreign tourists – they were a couple of Thai kids up in Bangkok from Songkhla to take an exam. 

The boys arrived from the south on a bus at Mo Chit bus station. 

A taxi driver took them from there to Rangsit and charged them 900 baht – EACH!

The fare was 1,800 baht for a journey that should be no more than 200 baht in total. 

The boys had no idea where they were going and were in Bangkok for the first time said a relative who posted on the YouLike site. 

After the boys reached his house and told him of the cost he tried to locate the taxi. 

He failed but managed to find out that it was a green and yellow Bangkok cab under the name of Prajan Singkhorn with a licence plate of กฎ (kor dor) 3630.

He asked netizens to look out for the driver who Manager called “naa leuat” (greedy).
