      SINGAPORE: A 44-year-old man has been arrested for alleged cheating taxi drivers of their money and failing to pay fares.

      In a press release issued on Friday (Mar 17), police said that they had received multiple reports about the man between January and March this year.

      Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect had flagged for taxis and asked drivers to stop at a market along Haig Road before proceeding to the intended destination.

      During these pit-stops, the man would ask for loans of between S$20 and S$40 from the taxi drivers under various different pretexts, and then alight at the halfway point and not return.

      The man was arrested in Potong Pasir on Thursday.

      He will be charged in court on Saturday with the offence of cheating, which is punishable by up to 10 years' jail and a fine.

      There are many scientists in this world, including taxi scientist, but few get famous or renowned, so in the media, you see many kinds of finding and proven thesis and theory make by each individual or group to seek attention, of cos, there are a few who really contribute to the humanity of this world, like finding out of DNA, heart bypass, those maths and physics definition and formulas.

      Most scientist are paid by commercial business organization to deviate and put people mind into fear, thereafter, people buy their product or use their services.

      In the early 70s, microwave was invented, some scientist said eating the food by microwave can get cancer, because conventional cooker and oven business paid the scientist to come out with such statement just to hold on to their business and jobs.

      40 years later, there is never a case or prove of anyone who got cancer is link with eating microwave food, but more of genetic effect, self destruction like drinking, smoking or taking strong medication or overly exhausted and exerted one self by depriving sleep and working long hr like taxi drivers.
