Procedure for reporting a taxi rip-off in Paris

Jump to last reply

I saw a report on another Forum of a lady traveller getting ripped off by a Parisian taxi driver. Seems she accepted an offer from the driver of a flat fee of €30 from Gare du Nord to her apartment on rue Durantin because she was tired and just wanted to get to her flat. She seemed to indicate it was a "regular" cab. I looked it up, and that is a distance of 1.7 kilometers, and should take about six minutes.

That sort of blatant scam surprised me, in that I thought that cabbies would be reluctant to pull such scams due to the high cost of a taxi license and the fear of losing it. In any case I assumed it would be a rare thing. I drove cab in San Francisco during my school days, and if we got caught not throwing the meter we got raked over the coals and/or got fired. Not worth the risk, IME.

Anyway, I asked on that Forum what the procedures are to report a taxi scam in Paris, and what happens to the taxi driver if he gets caught. I got no response, so I thought I would ask here. I recall there is driver information/cab number, etc., in each of the regular Parisian taxis, so one would note those down if a scam was suspected, but what do you do then?
