In Istanbul 3 months ago, E.K. filed a complaint with police in
regard to an interesting fraud technique.  E.K. explained that
"I encountered someone in front of a phone store who I assumed
to be a genuine phone seller.  He was showing a telephone he was
selling, saying "I brought this phone from abroad. It's worth
7,000 TL (about $1,500) but I need money so I'll accept 2,000 TL."

Another couple of people came by and bought the phone so,
thinking that this was a good deal, I bought one, too.  But when I
got home and opened the box I found that the 'phone' was just a
cardboard mock-up model."  Police began an investigation and
determined that a fraud gang member would show a real phone but
have other gang members come by, feign interest to create a buzz
and dupe normal citizens into taking advantage of this 'great deal'.

Police found that the gang also used this fraud technique in Antalya,
Aydın and Malatya.  For example, in a case from Antalya that
shocked even the police, a victim got 145,000 TL in credit from a
bank and bought hundreds of what turned out to be dummy phones.
(!)  After the 3-month police investigation, raids conducted
simultaneously in Istanbul, Antalya, Aydın and Malatya resulted in
the arrest of the gang members, who had duped 21 people out of
625,000 TL.
