Taxi Driving Hero Saves Senior Citizen From Being Scammed Out Of $25K

Cab drivers are often unsung heroes—and two weeks ago, one California cab driver in particular saved an elderly woman from getting scammed out of $25,000.

Raj Singh, the owner of Roseville Cabs, got a call to pick up a 92-year-old woman from her home and take her to the bank. As the two made conversation, the woman revealed some questionable details about why she was going to the bank.

The woman told Singh she had received a call from an IRS employee telling her she owed the government $25,000. Not wanting to be in debt, she wanted to withdraw the funds and make the payment as soon as possible.

Singh rightly sensed that the phone call sounded like a scam—and he didn’t want the elderly woman to be tricked out of a sizeable sum of money. He asked the woman if he could call the “IRS” employee to ask some questions. When Singh called the number, the “government agent” said he had no idea what the woman was talking about—and then he blocked Singh’s number.

Still nervous about her supposed debt, the woman wasn’t totally convinced the call she received was a scam. So Singh then took her to the Roseville Police Department and asked an officer to sit down and talk to her. The officer confirmed it was a scam and thanked Singh for saving the woman from losing her money. The posted a story about his good deed to their Facebook page and also presented him with a $50 gift card.

“We love this story because several times throughout, Raj could have just taken his customer to her stop and not worried about her wellbeing,” they wrote. “He took time from his day and had the great forethought to bring the almost-victim to the police station for an official response.”

“His quick thinking saved a senior citizen $25,000 and for that, we greatly appreciate his efforts.”
