    This happened time in my own city Chicago. Tried to charge us $20 to go to lower level. He got the police and the officer told us to go inside and told the driver if he didn't want to get arrested to leave.

    Thanks for the heads up on the cab thing....this almost happened to me in NYC...the cab driver sensed I was on business from outside of the city. I looked at him with a certain look said are you scamming me bro? Because you're not going to like what comes next. Bam, instant rate reduction.

    i think there are now shuttles in between terminals. Not so sure as I am usually dropped off at the airport by family. You can check the departure and arrival terminals on your e-ticket or contact the airlines to find out. Most airlines are also assigned specific terminals globally, so, you can check out the country's city airport guide to avoid confusion. Next time, don't pay the taxi driver, just tell them you're not going to pay any more than necessary after you get your luggage. They can fume, but, they can't pursue the matter. Thankfully, those taxi scammers in the airport have been dealt with, thanks to a post by Haley Dasovich from her experience.

    This are syndicated Taxi Drivers, Dont ride a Taxi cab in Philippines, Handling Fare Tarriff, Legal Taxis are using legit meters with seal, And Try To Examined if the Drver has An I.D. Posted inside? If none, Dont Ride. There are 2 types of Taxi in The Ph. 1. Airport Taxi, A bet expensive but they can only pick passengers from Airport Terminals.
    2. City Taxi (Regular), Body must be labeled with plate number
    And Govt. Contact of LTFRB, and Legit Taxi Drivers are wearing Uniforms, with Big I.D. and operators information and contact numbers, And Also Posted on the back Seat.

    The Taxi Scamming is so widely know in the meantime, that most people only just use Uber or, even better in the Philippines, Grab to get a nice friendly cheap ride in the city..
    They just making their situation worse and worse and dont understand it. Some day, no Taxi companies will exist anymore if they dont stop it. Its so sad.
