A cab driver has learned a costly lesson after agreeing to transport a man from Sacramento, California to Mandan, North Dakota. As reported by KOVR CBS 13, a taxi driver, Enaytayullah Hoseny, met 25-year-old Matthew Blackhanson at the Sacramento Greyhound station. After first giving a false destination, Blackhanson hopped in the cab and asked if Hoseny knew where North Dakota was. He didn’t, but punched it into his GPS and found out that it would take 22-hours and 15-minutes to get to Mandan.

Taxi driver stiffed out of $1500 after 22-hour ride across five states

Exactly. How many cab drivers do you know that will agree to a 2000 mile trip and not get something up front?

Just look at the mug shot of the passenger. I don't know if I'd even let that freak into my cab in the first place, much less drive him around the block without all the cash up front.

What do you think they talked about during their 22 hours in the car?

Lol, why didn't Hosney just pay $100 (or less) for a Greyhound ticket. If the driver gave that any thought he'd have known something was up.
