Re: is it just us

People of every nationality can be conned...whether its Turkey or anywhere else
We hear a lot about it on this forum since its specific to Turkey and people relate their personal experiences as well as anecdotes.

Turks who want to make money are quick to spot an insecure or naive person they have a built in radar system ..and of course the body language of some foreigners speaks volumes..i've often remarked about the way tourists and expats react with blue eyed wonderment or backslapping hilarity to everything a Turkish waiter or shopkeeper says and sometimes ive seen the tenseness creep in as grins become fixed and they don't know how to make their escape.

Part of the trouble is the difference in cultures..western Europeans are not honest in their friendliness which can come across to a Turk as real...they don't know how to say no pleasantly and so they feign friendliness and force themselves to sit in a dreary leather/property/jewelers place and drink endless cups of stewed tea from little glasses and pretend they like it.. the next day they will do anything to avoid the same place. The Turk who sees this then thinks that we are all liars and insincere but learns a lesson to be just as insincere.
İve seen this kind of behaviour from most nationalities but have to say that the Brits and İrish top the lot ...although Russians are used to being impolite and have no problems in saying 'niet' they too can be scammed by a wily estate agent ive seen this happen one or two in Alanya.

İf you are scammable you will get scammed
