Taxi drivers apparently drugging their passengers before robbing them | Samui Times

The Pattaya  Daily News has reported that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have warned passengers who use the services of taxi’s to be careful they do not fall prey to a new scam after a number of passengers have reported being robbed by unscrupulous drivers who are drugging their passengers

taxiThe report says that the FDA are putting out a warning to both Thai citizens and foreigners about this activity that has been going on for quite some time but occurrences seem to be on the increase. These crimes apparently involve the drivers of the taxis putting some kind of chemical into the air conditioning system of their cabs, possibly Chloroform, that will render the passenger unconscious.

Quite how this drug does not affect the driver we are not sure, but the report goes on to say that any passenger in a taxi that starts to feel nauseous should immediately roll down the windows and breathe fresh air from outside the cab.
