Another Local Taxi Driver Finds And Returns Lost Valuables
“Thank your for being great” was printed on a service quality comment card after a veteran driver with the Seattle Tacoma International Taxi Association (STITA) saw that the loser of a “very nice wallet” got her lost property back.
Last Saturday, (August 28), a passenger in a STITA taxi van found the wallet in the back and driver Patty Stephens went through it, finding an alien residence card (green card), many credit cards, fitness cards, Costco cards, and a child’s identification card. There was an unreported amount of cash also in the wallet.
Driver Stephens didn’t know if that wallet was from her most recent passenger or not, and the taxi dispatcher had not received any calls about a lost wallet.
Using the child’s identification card, Stephens did a Web search and found the phone number on the identification card and tracked down the contact information for a woman. She called and spoke with the woman, who said she had lost her wallet a week ago, and had already canceled all of her credit cards.
The woman and her family met with Patty Stephens earlier this week and gave her a $50 reward and filled out a comment card which gave the taxi service “excellent” marks for STITA service and said they would use it again and recommend it to others.
