Value of 30 RMB

I was heading to Lugulu, Shijingshan district from San li tun, a busiest tourist place in Beijing on Tuesday night around 10 PM. One of my Chinese colleagues helped me to board on taxi. Through the mirror he was watching/studying my gesture while taxi was running, just back to him that I have been seated.

 

While I reached to the destination, I ordered driver to stop the taxi and provide me a taxi fare bill.

 

Taxi driver told me 120 RMB and I gave him 150RMB. He pretended to check is money bag, kept 50RMB himself and said- ‘‘give me another 50RMB, take this your 100RMB. That means he didn’t need 20RMB.

 

I have heard that Taxi drivers are the channel to exchange the fake Notes. His intention seemed not to give me a bill or bargain for the 50RMB is clearly meant that he was a racketeer. He made loud sound and my poor Chinese/or kind attitude couldn’t overcome the situation. Finally, he gave me a bill but didn’t return my 30RMB.

 

However, I congratulated myself that I didn’t accept his duplicate note. 

 

What if I had called police, they might not help me with the lack of ample evidences.

 

What if I had taken 30RMB, he might not give me bill and without bill my taxi fare couldn’t be refunded by the office.

 

What if I had accepted duplicate 100 Yuan, I could lose …… …….(?) RMB. How much?? (I am poor in mathematics too)

Note his Taxi Driver's License number and report his doing to the Taxi Commission. Or, with your cell phone, you can just take a photo of his license number and his photograph ID which is usually displayed on the right side of the dash board. That might scare him enough to quit his scamming.

You know, i can not quarrel. once he lauded his voice, i totally fell to nervous mode. i decided to accept little rather than nothing.

You are very smart, beacause you could fould the driver's trick. Next time you may  take a taxi called on internet, for example, Didi,Shenzhou, Uber, and you may use electronic wallet of Alipay(zhifubao) or Micromessage(weixin).
