  1. Hello, I have a friend who recently went through an “agent” to obtain Residency Permit card. The agency fee was decided/paid and then the agent went to prepare the documents. Half way through my friend got a bad feeling based upon how they were dealing with her. She said she no longer wanted to go through as it didn’t seem legitimate. They showed her a copy of the Residency permit (with her name spelled incorrectly, twice, and the ID number scribbled out) – confirming her fears that it was counterfeit. On top of that they requested more money! She genuinely thought initially they were a helpful agency. She will now apply herself once she arrives on touristic visa. Is there any way to alert the authorities of this behaviour (She paid via western union)

    1. You can complaint about them to the Turkish Consulate of your homecountry.
