A cab driver scams a University of Illinois student out of thousands of dollars for a ride to campus.

The student, who is from China, was heading from O’Hare airport to this campus residence hall.

Police say a man at the airport told the student his bus wasn’t coming.

He reportedly offered the 18-year-old student a ride for a $1000 dollars then charged him $4200 when they got to town.

University officers are working with Chicago police to find the suspect.
