REALLY sorry to hear that.

Can you tell me please, when you say you failed in the legal system, meaning what, lost the case or no assets that can be taken?

Ps. No names if your going to give details. doesn't pay to warn the enemy.

Re: Debt Collection Agency

I have heard it said you can hire `heavies`how it works I do not know. If it is true and you go down that route don't ever go back to Turkey!

Re: Debt Collection Agency

This may help some people.



Turkey has court bailiffs, appointed by the courts to seize assets. The first problem with these is that they can be "bought". As big has Turkey is, we all know how it works when it comes to money, everyone seems to know everyone else. Court bailiffs are usually locals.



There are in Turkey private debt collectors, the snag with these is that they are usually obtained via a law firm. The law firm plays it cute because they actually want the court case in the first place, why? Because that's where their money lies. They earn in court, win or lose they & the court wants their fees.



The VERY FIRST action to take is an asset search, if there are no assets, then unfortunately your screwed. That asset search includes, Tapus for property/land, bank accounts & vehicles, (I would use an out of town lawyer, they can get that info)..



ANYONE who is currently dealing with a potential property scam should instruct their lawyer to do the search PRIOR to slinging money at the lawyer to open a costly court case. IF assets are found & you have a decent prim facia case, your lawyer goes to court & has those assets frozen. Its not easy to do that but its a damned sight cheaper than going head first at someone who has nothing. There is a percentage charge to do that BUT still far cheaper & more beneficial to go that way.

Worth pointing out, once you do that the "bandit" feels it, just like the UK everything gets frozen, trust me they start screaming for their Mother because all of a sudden its them getting shafted.



As for a debt collector to do a bit of kneecapping? Problem with that is, some of these goons, the lights on but nobody is in type of thing & I have no doubt if things went tits up, you could well end up being extradited. I was once offered the "services" of somebody & was well tempted but as said, it could well come back to your own front door..

Re: Debt Collection Agency

I once used the services of a couple of ‘heavies’ in South Africa.

Next thing I knew was a visit from the police saying that my agents had pointed a firearm at someone.

But that wasn’t as much a problem as getting my money back from the heavies = never happened!

You could try putting the word out that you are looking for someone for a kneecap job. Worked for us, he got scared and coughed up

Re: Debt Collection Agency

Turkey is a bit of a mirrored "wild west" or that's how it seems at times.

£100K equals aprrox 400,000 TL, Turks/Kurds will not be giving that up without a fight, that fight could lead to the OK Coral.
For a lot of people its a lost cause, harsh but unfortunately a fact, I wouldn't be rolling over for £100K, I would be exhausting every avenue going. The threat of violence cannot come from the victim because if it goes wrong & there's a body left somewhere you yourself could be left languishing in a cell.
Lawyers in Turkey are no different to lawyers here when it comes to challenging their failures, its a closed shop, a club, a cartel. The name of the game is to INSTRUCT a lawyer, not for them to instruct the client. In order to instruct a lawyer you need to learn & know the system.
As I have said, in some cases peoples loss is beyond help but FFS those who are thinking about buying or are involved in a purchase, ask the questions on here, there's a warehouse of knowledge............people have been there & done that. Don't be embarrassed, don't be ashamed, don't feel stupid............plenty of people on here can save your life savings, health & sanity with advice.

Re: Debt Collection Agency

Hi thanks for all the info its alot to take in. I have established that he has no assets and nothing in his name. he is too smart for that.I have been on this for 3 years now and been down all legal avenues. I wont be going back to Turkey for a long time but i was looking at someone to take over and pester this person. Its all too corrupt there and i have a mortgage for the next ten years on this house that someone else now owns and he has spent the money. If there was some way of putting pressure
on him to let him know that i will go after him for as long as im still above ground so he is always looking over his shoulder. He is running a business for himself but in someone else name. Thanks

Re: Debt Collection Agency

You say you have a mortgage on the house. Go into default and let the lender do all the work!
