The 76ers are getting scammed by an overseas huckster.
It’s right in front of their faces. It’s right in front of the face of anyone getting excited over the idea of a foreign savior coming overseas and playing for the 76ers.
Let me explain.
You get emails in your junk folder everyday, right? Poorly written messages from an unknown, overseas foreigner reaching out to you to let you know that a long lost relative of yours has passed away in Burkina Fasso and has left you MILLIONS of dollars in their will! HOLY SHIT! All you need to do is send a few thousand dollars to an address by Western Union to pay for the processing fee for such a large sum of money to be transferred to you and the millions are yours.
Eagerly you send the money…what luck! Hours pass…days pass…months pass…and you never hear from the beneficiary again. You were scammed and you were scammed good. Greed got the best of you.
Sounds familiar with this Furkan Korkmaz business, doesn’t it?
Sure, the 76ers “drafted” him in the first round of 2016, but has anyone ever seen him outside of Turkey? Even his name sounds made up….Furkan Korkmaz. Yeah right, this red blooded American has never even heard of a name like Furkan, so it’s obviously a fake. Fur Kan Kork Mas, uh huh, sure. How dumb do you think I am?
And now I’m hearing that the 76ers have to pay $675,000 to whatever Turkish Basketball League he’s playing in to pay for his player transfer? Oh, but don’t worry, Furkan’s agent says he himself has to pay over $1 million from his own pocket for his player transfer. He’ll do it the second the 76ers send over the near $700,000 “fee”, they promise.
I know a scam when I hear one. Don’t fall for it, Philadelphia, this Furkan gentleman is obviously made up and will not be draining threes for the squad next year. You send that money over to Turkey (if such a place really does exist) and you’ll never see it again. Furkan and his “agent” will disappear into the hot Turkish evening, never ot be heard from again.
Serves us right for trusting a foreign menace. Nobody on the 76ers was born outside of the good old United States of America, so why did we think it would work out now? Dario Saric, Joel Embiid and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot are as American as apple pie!
God Bless the USA.
