  1. I am looking to be directed to the right department regarding fraud by an Istanbul business. I purchased carpets and received carpets of lower quality, the wrong sizes, the wrong colors and other issues that were promised to me and not delivered. What department can I contact to have a file started and have this looked in to. Thank You.
