On March 29, 2019, Samantha Josephson, a 21 year old senior at the University of South Carolina, was kidnapped and murdered when she was targeted by a fake Uber driver. Immediately following this unfathomable tragedy, Samantha’s parents, Seymour and Marci Josephson, set out to educate others on the importance of ride share safety so that no other family would have to suffer this kind of loss.
The #WHATSMYNAME Foundation was established in honor of their daughter, Samantha Josephson.
The Lakewood Police Department will be placing “SAMI” signs in rideshare zones throughout Lakewood in honor of Samantha and to educate residents on rideshare safety.
