Beware of Greeks ... Especially Taxi Drivers!

Five days have passed since a taxi driver in Athens ripped off a Liverpool supporter visiting Greece with his family for the Champions League final and a few days holidays.

Driving the man and his family from the airport to the hotel, the taxi driver asked to be paid 95 euros for a fare of 30-35 euros.

When the poor tourist confronted him about the price and requested a receipt, the cab driver punched him in the face and drove away in his car, taking with him all the luggage, money and the tickets for the final.

The Briton gave a full description of both car and driver to the police, who have been unable to locate him for the past five days! This is not entirely surprising as Greek police have proven on several occasions that they are unable to even catch ... a cold!

With tourism being the largest industry in Greece, the country cannot afford its reputation being tinted by incidents like this.

More over, it looks as if yet another brainless idiot is going to get away with it unpunished.

How reassuring to know that the Greek spirit lives on.
