  1. I was told recently that if a Turkish citizen owes debt they can't leave the country until the debt is paid? Is this true? Does it apply to any amount of debt or over a certain amount of money? Also, must the debt be delinquent for the travel ban? I looked online and discovered Turkey still has debtors prison, which I was unaware of. It seemed like if the creditor turns the complaint overt to the police then the police will go look for the person and if they don't pay put them in jail?? How long do they have to go to jail. Someone said 1 day for every 5 TL is that true? Does anyone know about this?
  2. My friend has a long term Turkish boyfriend who recently received a letter concerning a debt from 7 years ago that he doesn't recognise. On contacting the firm to obtain information about it, they just said he needs to pay, no info from them. He asked why it took 7 years to send the letter, they said because he had kept moving but he's had the same address since 2010. Since calling them he has had no further letters or requests for payment. is this a scam? Even does historical debt expire in Turkey? In the U.K. It is after 6 years. Any advice greatly appreciated.
  3. Today a very good friend of mine texted me, asking me to lend him some money. Normally I don't hesitate much if the amount is acceptable since he is a really good friend. We have a long history of friendship and our homes are very close to each other. But I was still shocked when he asked for 20,000 dollars. 20,000 dollars may not be a very huge amount but it is not a small amount anyway. I never mean to doubt him. I believe him. I really do. But I had experienced several times when some "friends" borrowed money from me and they never bothered to pay back, and I was too ashamed to ask my money back. It was just several thousand so later I decided to just let it go. When it comes to this amount, these memories start to haunt me. I was quite panicked when he asked for loan from me and somehow I said yes. But now I start to worry. I wanted to keep my promise but I also worry about wasting money and losing friendship at the same time. But if I don't lend this money to him, our friendship is still at risk. He said he is going to pay me back after a while (he didn't specify when). Then I did a little calculation based on his earnings, and the numbers don't really match. It literally will take ages for him to accumulate this amount of money. So...I would like to hear your opinion about this situation. Should I lend him money or not? I am feeling quite guilty now because somehow I sound like not trusting him. Does this really make me an awful friend? PS: I did ask what he need this money for. He said he bought a house but he used his credit card for his down payment. He has to pay back this money before the interest-free period expires.
  4. Hey guys, I lent my ex boyfriend quite big amount of money 2500 euro for his debts( he was saying that). .Not more than month after when I came back from visit in Turkey he stopped to talk to me. I found out he is with sb else some local girl. I asked him to pay me back my money, cause I need them. We didn't get senet or any other legal document. We agreed that he ll pay me back in August but if I need me money he ll arrange earlier. We had a big fight cause I asked him for at least 1000 now cause I needed them and at the end we said lots of bad words to each other I told him I ll take steps to get my money back he got really angry he said he is not paying me back anything now... My question is... I have all our conversations, proofs of transfer from my bank and bank in Turkey but not legal document. What can I do to get it and what are my chances ? I don't know Turkish law but how it works there? Or if I report him to the police in August if he wont pay there are any chance? I know he has already lots of problems and police knows abt him he has also few cases in court... I m just very disappointed with his behaviour he is very mean, offends me and very very rude... Any adviceanybody what can I do? Thank You in advance...
  5. I have been married to my Turkish husband for twelve years now ,I still live in uk and he lives in aydin turkey ,,a couple of months ago ,he told me he had run up credit card debts ,and that they have said if they are not paid they will put him in prison ,, I am on a small income but on my next visit to see him ,,I would like to go and talk to the advocate and try and arrange a minimum amount each month ,,but I do not know the Turkish law ,,and I am afraid they will hold me responsible for his debts ,and try and detain me in turkey .. I do not know the exact amount he owes ,,but he has said it stretches over a couple of years ,,so I imagine the interest has build up a huge amount ,does any body know how I would stand on this situation,,V
  6. Hi th I am new to your Forum, I have an urgent problem, we had a villa in Turkey until a few days ago, we made an agreement with an agent to sell to him, he took us to the Notary Office and we signed documents there for him to sell our property at "any price" after we had done this we were very concerned about the inclusion of the "at any price" we went back to the Notary office on our own and we spoke with them and they said we could cancel this agreement to give Power of Attorney to the agent we asked if they needed this and they said not while we were still in the country he would only need this power of attorney if we were leaving and wanted him to act on our behalf, the Notary cancelled the agreement to give Power of Attorney to him, he had promised to give us a deposit but two weeks later we still had no deposit but he said he would have the money soon for us, he is also saying that we signed a contract in his office which states that if we back out we owe him £10,000.00 and vice versa if they back out, however he did ask us to sign this which was on a white piece of A4 paper not a letter headed paper with the name of the company but we declined to do this he put the date of sale on this as 25th June two days before we were due to return home. However as he was not forthcoming with a deposit we felt that he was going to back out we did try to speak about this but he kept saying he would have the full money soon for us. In the end we had another offer on our villa and we accepted this, we did tell him we had another offer and asked if he could give us a deposit or the full purchase price he kept saying he would have full money soon not to worry, another few days passed and the other interested party had the money ready to give us, we had to return to England earlier than our intended date and so we sold to the other people, we went into try to see the other agent to let him know but they said he was off somewhere on business, We did everything legal with the purchasers signing the Tapu over etc at the Tapu Office. As soon as the first agent realised we had had to go home early and had sold to someone else, he started phoning us and texting and with each text the threats became worse, he is still texting us now. Three days later. He says we had an agreement, he says we signed the contract in his office which we most certainly did not, the one which he showed us and was on an A4 piece of paper, he has sent a copy of this via email to me, showing our signatures, Now we did not sign this he had copies of our signatures on the Power Of ~Attorney done at the Notary and all our details, copies of our passports containing our address and we did give him our English mobile number this is what he has been contacting us on. We think he may have copied our signatures on this so called contract. ~We are extremely worried now that he can take us to court over this, he has threatened to send his brother to see us who lives in the UK. He says we do not mess with him, What we need to know is where do we stand legally with this, due to the fact we cancelled legally the power of attorney the next day and he did not give us a deposit and the signtures on this so called contract look like our signatures but we know they are not. What can he legally do, he is asking us for £10,000.00 for breaching this so called contact and also he says he had the money transferred in to his account ready to give us and because of this transfer and us selling to someone else, because he kept making excuses and no deposit. that he has also lost £3,000.00 in interest on this money so he wants this also, he has said he will take us to court and he is getting a solicitor and of course the threat of "Don't Mess with Him" and that he will send his brother round to our home to collect this money. Where do we stand, can anyone help us with this issue. Please. Rocamber
