Social media helps passenger find lost debit card

A Dubai resident says she's very grateful to a taxi driver and a resident who went out of their way to return her misplaced debit card.

Irish expat Eithne Treanor says the card fell out of her bag when she was paying for a taxi ride last week.

It was spotted by the next passenger, Anis Seksaf, who tracked her down on social media and sent her an email.

Eventually, the driver of the taxi, Pakistani expat Mir Zaman brought the card to her building after the two were able to exchange phone numbers.

"There are many wonderful things about living in Dubai, but this kind act from taxi driver, Mir Zaman tops them all," said Eithne.
