THE PHONE FRAUD IN TURKEY: "I AM A PROSECUTOR AND I WANT YOUR MONEY"!

Abstract

Author(s): Nuriye EL?K

A new form of fraud that has been attracting the media in Turkey and frequently appears in both televisions and newspapers: phone fraud. In this form of fraud, fraudsters do not make any physical contact with persons but only give specific commands over the telephone. Act of defraud is completed if the amount requested is transferred to the requested bank account without talking to anyone else and closing the telephone or money or jewellery goods are delivered to the foreigner coming to the house eventually. This study aims to analyse the expressions used in such forms of fraud and which succeed in convincing the persons. These expressions were reached by analysing the news of three newspapers which broadcast at national level and have different political views. It has been seen that the expressions used are concentrated around "police, terrorist organization and prosecutor" and the grounds for this were tried to be explained by the social effects of the terror and the trust in the institutions.
