  1. The Usual Burglaries The majority of burglaries committed in Turkey are unplanned and disorganized. Burglars rely on lax security and look for the easiest target with the least risk. They make sure nobody is home through some method which can be easily explained away, such as knocking on a door with a pretext question or walking around the house to see if they are challenged, as they look for an easy entry point. If they find they're able to walk through an unlocked door or climb through an insecure window, speed is essential. so they take what is left on tables and dressers or stored
  2. New Travel Friends One or more men will find a reason to start a conversation, by asking you the time or saying something to you in Turkish. When you reply, they will address you in English. Coincidentally, they will be going your way or offer to show you around. They may even travel with you for a while. At some point they will offer you candy or gum laced with a knockout drug. On a train or bus, it will appear to everyone else that you simply went to sleep. Then at an opportune moment, they will relieve you of your money, credit cards, and anything else you have of value. They may even t
  3. Mugging The occurrence of violent crimes, even in large cities, is lower than in comparable cities in other parts of the world. In smaller towns, it is practically unheard of. But muggings can happen, in places including shopping malls, parking lots, and even outside of your own home. In most muggings in Turkey, thankfully, the victim is not hurt. The muggers simply overpower the victim by holding them down, or may display a weapon, get the valuables, and disappear. Muggers Muggers typically roam around or lie in wait looking for an unprepared or unaware target. They are not neces
  4. Sexual harassment is illegal in Turkey. Those committing it, especially if they are in a position of influence over the victim, can actually be sentenced to three months in jail. Unfortunately it is one thing to pass a law, and another to change the mentality of every man in a society. The most common types of sexual harassment in Turkey are Leering Making kissing noises Honking by men in passing cars Touching or groping on crowded buses or other forms of public transportation Insistent advances Following Misunderstanding Intentions Being friendl
  5. Street Criminals Blend In Don't expect to be able to spot one. Thieves may dress like businessmen or women, or even tourists. Teams Pick pockets often work together, one creating a distraction while the other takes your belongings. Even children can be involved. One team member may work as a spotter, directing another to an inattentive target or unattended item of value. After a theft, the thief may pass the stolen item to another, so if confronted, or even searched, he or she won't have the stolen item on them. Crowds Anywhere people are close together is a good place fo
  6. I need to find out how to have the terms of my divorce decree enforced. My ex husband and I were married in the US but divorced through the Turkish Family Court system in 2015. I am specifically interested in knowing if there are resources available for expats who do not have financial means to hire a lawyer. I have resided in Turkey on a RP from 2010 to August of this year. I was in the process of renewing my residence permit when my mother was diagnosed with cancer. I had to leave immediately to care for her as she has no surviving family members living in her area.
  7. I got married my Turkish husband 5 yrs ago after dating for 3 years. I live in the UK. We got him about 3 tourist visas before we got the spouse visa. He lived in the UK with me for nearly 2 years, and never made any effort to learn the language or find a job, and the couple of jobs that friends found for him, he made excuses and left. I realised how different we were culturally when he moved to the UK ( I know, I know big mistake!). We had lots of arguements and several of these involved him returning to Turkey and then begging me to take him back each time. The final time this happened, I kn
  8. The U. S. Embassy in Ankara informs U. S. citizens that the U. S. government continues to receive credible indications that terrorist groups are seeking opportunities to attack popular tourist destinations throughout Turkey. The U. S. Embassy reminds U. S. citizens that foreign tourists in Turkey have been explicitly targeted by terrorist organizations, and advises U. S. citizens to be mindful of the potential for danger in crowded public areas and at popular tourist destinations. See the State Department's travel website for the Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, Travel Ale
  9. Your steel door won't help you if you only leave it on the latch. Watch how quickly these ladies breech this improperly-locked steel door.
  10. Hi Thank you for this forum. I have a VERY young friend, a citizen of the UK, travelling in Istanbul as a model and she's also there on a promotional tour. She's only 19. Her companion/bodyguard also happens to be her boyfriend... I know not a good idea. I didn't know the boyfriend was tagging along. Anyways, the other night he beat her. She's in Istanbul and has no friends living there... her agent is not in country. She's in fear for her life. I told her to get out, go to a shop, call the British Consulate-General for help. Was that the correct thing to do? My husband traveled t
  11. I am not even sure if this can be counted as a robbery because maybe these kids were just trying to tease me, and they didn't force me to handle in my phone or wallet. They grabbed me a pair of sunglasses (worth 500 TL) when I was waiting for the bus in front of the Merkez Park (Central Park). As I didn't expect this to happen in broad daylight, it took me quite a while to realize what was going on, and by that time, these teenage boys had long disappeared in the traffic, not to mention that I had to put on my normal glasses because of my poor eye-sight. I had to admit I was being too car
  12. CCTV of two thieves robbing a house on 1st Sept in Kaş. Anybody know them please tell the Kaş police. http://webtv.hurriyet.com.tr/2/54252/0/1/kas-ta-villa-soygunu-guvenlik-kamerasinda-ozel-haber.aspx Edit: this was in Kalkan not Kaş, sorry, given duff gen.
  13. Sorry, I didn't know where to put this question, since I'm living in Istanbul, I'll post it here. I was wondering if carrying pepper spray is legal in Turkey and where can I buy it at? Thanks.
