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.
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?
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.
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...
