Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
How long have you known this person? Have you ever met in person or only online?
What are they doing in Turkey? Do they want you t send the money?
Have you ever met in person or only online? Was he sent to Turkey by his employer or did he go as a freelancer?
What are the debts owed for?
When was the last time you met in person?
How did you meet originally?
Than you for your patience. I am actually concerned you are being scammed, as this fits the script of a very common "romance scam".
Thank you for the additional information. If this is a legitimate debt in Turkey and he has assets in the US then it should be a simple enough matter to transfer the money from the US to Turkey. There are US banks and conduits for sending money from the US to Turkey, such as American Express or Western Union.
Does he have an attorney in Turkey assisting him?
Are you still online with me?
