Toronto taxi drivers charged in alleged scam involving debit cards

TORONTO — Two Toronto cab drivers are facing a total of 23 charges after allegedly taking part in a debit card fraud scheme.

Toronto police say the two men would take a customer’s debit card while it was being used to pay a fare, then switch it with a card that looked like it came from the same financial institution.


Police say they’ve been investigating the scheme since last fall and believe there may be other victims.

Muhammad Tariq, 26, and 25-year-old Ahmed Dogar are each facing multiple charges including counts of fraud and forgery.

The men are due to appear in court next month.
