For all of you..... that are conducting a search on the above mentioned business or person, I believe you will find this factual report to be informative and contradictes what Ahmet Sandikci may be saying to you with his nice guy smooth talking act. The information provided in this report is factual and gathered from various sources with substantial proof to back it up.

Sandikci started selling currency about (4) years ago after his former business associate Joseph Rainier introduced him to this hobby. I am told through more than one reliable source that Rainier met Sandikci at his mechanic garage in Palm Harbor Florida German Auto Repair where Rainier would have his Jaguars serviced by Sandikci. It was there that Sandikci was introduced to american collectable paper money by Rainier. Rainier moonlighted buying and selling rare coins and had no interest in selling paper money. All the media stories you read that lie and indicate Sandikci started collecting as a little boy when his father who allegelly was a building contractor found paper money in old buildings and that Sandikci since then allegelly had a compassion to collect paper money. Folks this is a big fat lie and the start of the deception by Sandikci who was been raised in Germany by gypsies. Sandikci will try and convince anyone that people are zealous of him and that is why people are saying bad things about him. That is another lie people.

Sandikci started out by taking quite a few Americans via false promises of returns on their purchases through lies and fraudulent tactics. Sandikci with the help of Turk of America went out on a lie promotion media campaign. The owner of the publication Turk of America and/or his representative would come to Florida from their New York office for cash payments and to enjoy very young call girls paid for by Sandikci.This is one of Sandikci's famous method of operation. He would seek out older men with money and treat them to a strip club or young paid call girls to soften them up to go in for the kill on the bull investment return story. Sandikci would hold most porfolios in his safe tha he sold to unsuspecting customers and at times switch out the better graded bills with new fraudulent bills overgraded by his buddy Jess Lipka who owns CGA grading service in New Jersey and has several lawsuits filed against him right now in Flemington New Jersey.

Sandiki is a master at deception and lies. During January 10 -13 , 2008 Sandikci was a vendor at a trade show in Orlando Florida sponsored by the Florida United Numismatists. The show is one of the largest held in Florida every year. During that show Sandikci lied about the alleged sale of a $50 gold certificate for $100,000.00 to his buddy to get more media hype and manipulate control of prices in the currency collecable market. The facts Sandikci DIDNOT sell the $50 Gold Certificate for $100,000.00. During that show all of the major publications such as Bank Note Reporter were there and knew the connection between Sandikci and the buyer (Dennis Detrie)of the alleged note that alegelly set a new record price. The trade publication media refused to publish the lie Sandikci tried to pull on everyone. However, Sandikci is not the person who can stand not succeeding at his deception, so he returned to Tarpon Springs and sold the lie toTom Curran at Fox News even after being asked by FOX news prior to the filming if he knew the person personally that bought this $50 gold certificate for $100,000.00. Sandikci replied in the negative. Sandikci now uses that lie video on his website like and furthered his lies and scams on the public to advance his schemes. A Clear violation of the laws in the United States 15 United States Code Section 45.

In 2008 the Tampa office of the FBI came to Sandikci and question him regarding the multiple wire transfers being sent to Turkey. The money was payoffs going to various people in Turkey who agreed to help Sandikci with his fradulent scams on the American public. Sandikci lied to the FBI and stated that it was for his currency store in Turkey. A hole in the wall apartment set up to throw off investigators. You will now see Sandikci being sponsored by all those in Turkey who reaped the monetary benefits to help further his lies on us americans to continue his fraud. i.e. Turk of America publication and several silent turkish politicians.

It should be know at this point that Sandikci could not commit this ponzi, fraud scheme alone he needed help to do so. Sandikci's job was to keep bringing the money to buy this political connection and to buy the free media. The other important part of the puzzle was his co-conspiracy with his buddy Jess Lipka the owner of CGA grading company. The agreement between Sandikci and Lipka was Lipka would provide the overgraded currency on credit to Sandikci to sell to (as Sandikci put it) stupid americans. This went on for about two years. The FBI in Tampa Florida had numerous complaints from former customers of Sandikci whom had gotten ripped off.

Sandikci's former business associate Rainier was questioned by the FBI and information obtained by the writer that during that interview Rainier was informed tha the FBI had numerous complaints against him regarding currency sales. Rainier did not buy or sell currency, Rainier bought and sold precious metals and did not deal in buying or elling currency that was Sandiki'c department. Rainier could not offer the FBI any infromation that they did not already have. The interview Rainier had with the FBI did enlighten Rainier to the allegations of money transfers to Turkey and the numerous complaints by former customers of Sandikci. Rainier made a decison to withdraw his accreditation from Sandikci's business and to sever the realtionship with Sandikci. Rainier did not want to unkowingly be involved in criminal acts with Sandikci or anyone else for that matter. However, Sandikci and Rainier were like brothers for over (5) years and Sandiki knew Rainier had to much information and had to find a way to discredit Rainier. Sandikci filed false charges against Rainier and had him arrested for writing checks that Rainier was authorized to write that were related to commissions on coin sales due Rainier. Now, three months after the fact Sandikci falsely accused Rainier of not having authorization to write those checks. Interesting enough the Detective who arrested Rainier ,failed to contact any of the witnesses given to him by Rainier, they were former employees or friends of Sandikci and who had direct knowledge of the agreements between Rainier & Sandikci.

Since that arrest Sandikci has been using the funds obtained by fradulent means to infilterate our politicians and is targeting politicans seeking re-election in the USA. Sandikci right after the lies on his former business associate Rainier became close knit with the Turkish Coalition of America and donated $5000 to the PAC of the Turkish Coalition on December 22, 2008. Rainier was arrested as a result of perjury and lies to government officials by Sandikci on December 9th 2008.

Sandikci was manipulating a new (now former) buisness associate and money man Dennis Detrie who fronted big money to open the West Palm Beach location. Once the West Palm Beach location was finally finished and pened Sandikci target wealthy friends of Detrie and obatained hundred of thousand of dollars from them to advance his scams. Detrie and Sandikci parted ways once it was discovered that Sandikci took Detrie and freinds through his fradulent scams.

That money is now used to penetrate the political arena in an attempt to portect Sandikci and all his scams played on numeours Americans. The value of Sandikci's collection is lies and how long he has been involved in the currency collectable hobby. All of the media stories and catalogs of Sandikci's contain numeorus contradictions and a review of all this media hype and brochures will reveal the inconsistencies this man has out there.

The man Sandikci fears the most is Vince Cavo the owner of Vinnie's Coins out of Ohio who has tracked the census reports on the currency sold and regarded by Sandikci's friend Jess Lipka the owner of CGA currency grading company which Sandikci promotes like crazy in all his media hype. CGA now posts stuff like letters from politicans on the collectable universe blog site since Sandikci has been kicked off that site and many others. The most highly reconized organization in the curency market PCDA will not even allow Sandikci to be a member because of the well known deception Sandikci is conducting with Jess Lipka. Sandikci has stated numeorus times how he will manipulate and control the collectable currency market and prices. In violation of 15 U.S. Code Section 45.

In the writers strong opinion law enfrocement needs to take a very close look at what Sandikci is doing and interview thekey witnesses with factual infromation and evidence like Vince Cavo has listed on his website since 2002. Sandikci has been trying to discredit cavo ever since because Cavo has effortlessly been trying to expose this guy and his fraud on the American people.

It truely amazes this writer and many others that a foreignor can rip off americans and get away with it. However, it were a american doing waht Sandikci is doing the american would be in a federal rpsion a long time ago. So folks here you have it a good history of TRUTH and what this guy is doing here on american soil. Sandikci will post on various sites lies about his enemies by calling them crooks and child molesters etc. The FBI, IRS, ICE and the Federal Trade Commission need to conduct a through investigation of Sandikci and his business practices and they will get a good idea of what is going on and stop it before they have another Madoff scandal on their hands. People are not going to make allegations against Sandikci that are not true, however it amazes me that Sandikci can make false allegations, committ perjury and lie to gvoernment officials to advance his schemes on U.S. soil only to transfer that money to Turkey or in the coffers of U.S. politicians via the Turk of America Coalition.

Sandikci uses the name porscheahmet on Ebay and has quite a few of his turkish freinds shill bidding on Ebay as a part of his overall scheme and fraudulent tactics.

All the facts you read here are true and without any hype. There are many people out there that have documented evidence and facts that Sandikci does not want to surface and is the major reason of his dirt campaign and lies against his former bsuiness associates, employees and former friends on fraudposts, complaintboards etc. alleging sexual to children, kkk members type posts etc. on his victims so they will come up on Google searches when the public does searches on their names.
