Police in Hanoi are looking for a taxi driver who reportedly ran away with a mobile phone that a South Korean passenger left with him so that she could go inside her house to get money for the fare.
Park Jeong Hee, 34, said in a police report that she took the taxi home early Thursday morning. When it arrived, she found out she did not bring any money, local media reported.
So the driver asked her to give him her phone, to make sure that she would come back with the money.
When she came out with the money, the taxi had left.
Hee said her phone is worth more than VND16 million (US$710), while the cab fare was VND240,000 ($11).
