"They're always finding someone"
Advertiser Vildan Ay, the last survivor of the transfer of money to the deposit, wrote in his social media account;
"Such a fraud has been derived. In a good neighborhood, he's advertising a house in a pretty good condition. The price is being so cheap that you say ' I should never miss it '. You're clling the so-called owner, he is taking up the phone and saying : I'm out of town, I'm going to come on Friday, I have made appointments, call me on Friday, if it won’t be taken, then it is yours. The goal is to find someone who says, "Let me send you a deposit, give me the house." Someone like that comes out. The deposit is being sent out. The dialed phone is getting shut down. And that person can never be found again. "
