I've heard stories in the news, but just wanted to know if anyone here experienced this before. I'm very curious to know. And how I can avoid this happening please!

    Just check the license plate. 

    I live in the city, and it's already hard to identify a driver. I automatically look for license plate, not for preventing scams, but just to find them

    Imposters are scary.  You can get robbed or even attacked if you are a woman.  

    I have heard that this happens a lot in some countries. They pick up tourists this way, and once at the destination or during the trip when you notice, they would demand absurd payments.

    This happens daily in Manhattan where limos will just pick up a passenger for cash. They've always done this and they'll continue to do it

    I haven't, but I've almost accidentally gotten in the wrong car! The driver told me I was wrong though, and didn't try to scam me.
