Car company from Doetinchem has to pay back almost a million euros to Turkish top club Fenerbahçe due to fraud Car

DOETINCHEM – The Turkish top club Fenerbahçe has wrongly transferred 831,929.50 euros to a car company in Doetinchem. The football club from Istanbul thought to pay the last part of a transfer fee to the Italian Empoli FC, but turned out to have fallen into a trap of fraudsters. As a result, even the license of the great power was at risk.




The Gelderland court recently ruled in a civil case that the car company must repay the money to Fenerbahçe. The police are conducting a criminal investigation, a spokesperson said. No suspects have been arrested so far.

Fenerbahçe took over Slovenian international Miha Zajc from Empoli on January 31, 2019. The Turks paid 3.9 million euros for the midfielder. That amount would be transferred to the club in three installments.

Fake email

But that went wrong with the last transfer of one million euros, which was scheduled for September 25, 2020. That day, at 17:16, Fenerbahçe received an email from the Italian club with a reminder. A few hours later, however, a falsified message popped into the Turkish e-mail box.
