Verifone have today issued an apology on social media, after drivers complained about a defamatory article carried in the latest edition of the LTDA's Taxi paper.
Drivers were accused in an article on page 24, authored by VeriFone's Ben Priestley, of "keeping their precise earnings a secret with no record of what you make for the tax man"
Many drivers have made their own protest over this insult by refusing to use Verifone to process credit card payments and have covered up their in cab appliance.
To stop an escalation of the driver revolt, Verifone issued this apology on Twitter just before midday.
Not to be out done, the a LTDA finally puts out an admission that the article should never have gone out.
This was posted on Twitter around 6:40pm tonight.
