Rainier did not steal anything from Sandikci. Rainier wrote checks for over (5) years for Sandikci and was never a problem until Rainier found out Sandikci was conducting what Rainier considered fraudulent transactions and Rainier did not want any part of it. The FBI in Tampa interviewed Sandikci regarding the muliple cash wire transfers to Turkey. Rainier was informed by the FBI that there were numerous complaints against Sandikci regarding the sale of currency by Sandikci to prior customers of Sandikci.

Rainier broke off the friend/relationship and went his own way. Now all of a sudden, three months after the fact Sandikci calling Rainier a crook. The checks written were the result of commissions due Rainier on coin sales Rainier bought.(Rainier did all coin transactions for Sandikci who has NO experience with coins) See: www.keycurrency.com and click on bad grade link and see the evidence for yourself as to what Sandikci was doing.

It amazes me that a foreignor can have an American locked up when the American exposes him for illegal activity. It further amazes me that the police failed to contact the witnesses given to them by Rainier who would have verified Rainier had the authority to write checks as he has done for the past (5) years everytime Sandikci would leave the country to travel to Turkey which was numerous times.

Sandikci would take stuuf out of USA on each trip to Turkey and also take cash advances on his credit cards and then travel back to USA to pay them off and then go back to Turkey and get more cash davances in Turkey and come back to the USA and pay it off. Hmmm.....money laundering goin on there.

A real importnat item Sandikci tried to penetrate a Jewish organization. ECJC to obtain political as well as powerful connections to our government to advance his fraud schemes in the USA. The ECJC penetration was through his current wife who had high friends connected to them. Sandicki wired thousands to a freind of his wife who set up a meeting with Sandikci and this organization in Germany for a hefty minimum fee.(look at Sandikci's passport entries and stamps, hard to trace the emails Sandikci dumped his computer hard drive so the feds could not track all the crooked information and bought a new computer just a few months ago. I think the FBI, Treasury and Homeland Security would be interested in those records.

Rainier gave his side of the story to the press who for some reason has not published a follow-up article. Maybe the reason was to put Rainier OUT of business and let his accuser continue to defraud US citizens while keeping Rainier away from his business and earning a living.

It truely amazes me that a foreignor can use our court system and manipulate it for his benefit. I challenge the reporter on this story to contact the FBI in Tampa and get a list of ALL the people that filed complaints against Rainer's accuser for ripping them off on currency sales and then let's see who the real crooks are, or ask the FBI about all the wire money transfers being sent out of the USA to Turkey, or the money (buy In Money) that Rainier's accuser gave to the ECJC www.ecjc.org a large Jewish organization in an attempt by Rainier's accuser to penetrate this organization who is alleged to have a very large influence within our government. Rainier's accuser has friends with very close ties to this organization.

Maybe the press will ask Rainier's accuser why he has married and divorced three prior wives from Turkey one of them was his cousin (who works for the government in Turkey) in such a short period of time like (9) months after processing immigration paperwork on all three, or why numerous Turkish friends have come here and obatined American wives to get green cards and then dump them. Hmmmmmmm....
