Transferring credits for a fresh start at Trump University,
where he'll fit right in.
Sofu Altınbaş (54), one of the leaders of the family-owned Altınbaş
Holding company, decided to enter law school at the age of 48 and
went to Yakındoğu University in Northern Cyprus for his courses.
In 2015 Sofu bey graduated on the same day as his daughter Fatma.
In reporting celebrating his achievement, Sofu bey said "I've tried
to complete the education I left half-finished long ago. I set out on this
path for my own satisfaction and to be an example to youth."
As law school graduates know, upon graduation one does not receive
a law license right away - a six month internship with a lawyer of the
bar is required, followed by a six month virtual case study. So the
person who claimed to be Sofu Altınbaş participated in this virtual
training over the WhatsApp phone system on the internet.
However, since WhatsApp is owned by Facebook, one day 'Sofu' bey's
case study partner recieved a 'people you may know' Facebook message
and was shocked to see that 'Sofu' was someone else. The jig was up for
Sofu bey and his stand-in. The bar association canceled his internship
and forbade him from ever practicing law anywhere (!).
