The famous Raki generally defrauded those who did illegal activities. That’s why nobody complained. In particular, he defrauded minorities. Raki’s father is Major General Şemsettin Zobu, and his brother is Kuzey Zobu, a famous businessman in London.

Eyüplü Halit is the first swindler to make a name for himself. His first incident was the establishment of his own police station in the last days of Istanbul’s occupation. Eyüplü Halit, who called the Greeks to the police station, introduces himself as the commissioner, and asks for bribes from our Greek citizens with false denunciations. Since the deportation and exchange practices in that period were also intense, no one could speak out. It’s like a robbery. He speaks very good Greek and French. It is said that Eyüplü Halit defrauded even Mussolini. It is not known which class the new ones fall into, but the old ones are not few.
