(Sabah Newspaper, 26 September 2013)
Yeah, but it's hard to believe...
Officials from a famous construction company came from
Istanbul to Tekirdag and gave banknotes of 5, 10, 20, 50 and
100 TL to 5,000 people on the street as a publicity stunt. So
that there wouldn't be a mad rush for the money, police
teams put the firm's officials in a police vehicle and took them
to a safe place.
The construction firm plans to build homes in Tekirdag, prompting
the cash giveaway idea. The banknotes were distributed to 5,000
people in the city center, inside brochures for the building project.
Some recipients didn't believe the money was real and others, thinking
there was nothing inside besides the brochure, didn't even take one.
Some citizens couldn't hide their amazement, with an elderly person
saying that it was difficult to believe the money distributors were for
real. A total of 200,000 TL was given away.
Raining money in Tekirdag.
