Could you please explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I feel so stupid I met someone through facebook and a relationship developed. He said he was going to work in Turkey. The next thing he did was send me a copy, on facebook, of a cheque he had been paid and a copy of a letter supposedly from the Turkish Inland Revenue, saying that he had to pay 55000 euros in non residential tax. He wants me to send him the money to pay them.

It's a scam, don't. It's a well known rip off scheme. This person doesn't exist.

You pay thus you will lose the money. Delete and block. Asking report to facebook.

This is a common scam. Anyway Turkish currency is Lira

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
