An indictment up to 7 years imprisonment was prepared for 31-year-old Halil Akyol who supposedly rooked 44-year-old Turan Şahin 63 thousand liras by introducing himself as a Chief officer in combating terrorism. Turan Şahin who runs a market in Fethiye claimed to be a victim of a scammer who introduced himself as a policeman. Şahin said that the scammer called his mobile and said he was chief officer Ali working at Muğla Anti-Terror Branch of Police Headquarters. He said Turan Şahin’s bank accounts were used by terrorists and these accounts were at risk, he should transfer the account to the IBAN number he would give. Şahin believed what he was told and transfered a total amount of 63 thousand liras to the scammer’s bank account. As soon as the money is transfered, the scammer confessed that he was not a policeman and he would buy some gold with the transfered money. Şahin went to the police and an investigation has been started. Scammer Halil Akyol was caught by teams of Adana Police Department on March 30. He was arrested by the court for using ‘Information systems, banks or credit institutions as a tool for fraud’.
