American University in Bulgaria / Overcharge scam
This taxi firm exploits weary foreign guests to Bulgaria arriving at its nice, new airport, giving these foreign guests a very poor first impression of Bulgaria. The international traveler places his luggage in the trunk of the taxi at the front of the taxi que and enters the cab which then leaves onto a major highway. The passenger then sees that the taxi charges 3.50 leva per kilometer. Fearing for his luggage and finding himself in a conflict with the driver on a major highway, the passenger avoids conflict with the driver to find that by the time the cab has arrived at the Sofia main bus station, the charge is 53 leva.
