Has anyone else received an email from someone in Morroco wanting to study in Turkey?

It just seemed strange.

Greg,

On the one hand, it may be a visa scam. On the other hand, I'm in grad school admissions, and over the past year we've noticed a major uptick in applications from Morocco and Libya with upfront documentation of full government support for the students. There is clearly a ramped up governmental effort to send students abroad from both countries.

Whether the e-mail you got was an example of what I'm seeing, or a pilotfish scam in its slipstream is an interesting question.

Thank you for the information. I'll keep my eyes open. Really wonder how my email address got associated with aikido *and* with Turkey.
