(Sabah Newspaper, 7 March 2014)

A dancing (and bilking) machine.

Nuh Mehmet Göncü fraudulently collected millions
from people in Kayseri, promising them that he could
get 'cheap gold', but he has been caught using a fake
doctor ID.

Göncü attained notoriety when he married off his daughter
in 2011 with a fabulous wedding at a 5-star hotel. Having
gained people's confidence, he spread the word that he had
special state authority to get gold cheaply from the mint.

After collecting about 10 million TL from 1,000 people,
Göncü disappeared.  When the fraud came to light, a great
many citizens from Kayseri, Nevşehir, Niğde, Istanbul and
Kırklareli filed complaints against Göncü.

Recently, Göncü was discovered in Kartal, Istanbul, posing as
a retired doctor. He had opened a luxurious office and started
to collect money again using the 'mint' lie. The day before
yesterday police raided his office and Göncü was taken off
to jail.  Five people who claim that Göncü bilked them out of
50,000 TL have filed complaints.
