Taxi Driver Ripped Off Disney Tourists

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities have arrested a taxi driver who they say ripped off tourists at Disney hotels.
The Orlando Sentinel reports two pairs of undercover Orange County Sheriff's detectives made reservations last week from two Disney resorts for a taxi to take them to SeaWorld. They were investigating reports from tourists who paid for round-trip fares but were stranded when the driver failed to show up for the return trip.
Officials say the driver told detectives he was from Mears -- the only company authorized to pick up and drop off customers at Disney resorts. They later identified him as 53-year-old Nankishore Ramkisoon, who once worked for Mears but is now an independent driver.
He is charged with one count of committing communications fraud and two counts of scheming to defraud.
