Hazal Türesan became a victim of a scammer
On July 1, 2022, Hazal Turesan received a call from a person who identified themselves as a banker and informed her that her late father had an outstanding insurance debt of 100,000 Turkish lira. After the call, the actress took out a loan for 100,000 Turkish lira from a bank and transferred the money to the IBAN number provided to her. Some time later, Hazal realized that she had been deceived and filed a complaint with the prosecutor’s office.
As a result of the investigation, a case was initiated against the suspect Alperen Sanliturk on charges of aggravated fraud using information systems, banks, or credit instruments. He faces 4 to 10 years in prison.
Hazal Türesan stated that the suspect on the phone provided her with many accurate details, such as the date of her father’s death, and admitted that she believed the scammer. He convinced her that the matter was urgent and coerced her into transferring the money.
