Turkish anti-smuggling and organised crime units of the police have launched nationwide operations against a criminal enterprise accused of devising multiple fraud schemes on Thursday.

The police sought the arrest of 226 suspects and summoned 268 others to police stations for questioning. So far, 176 suspects were detained.

The Turkish Interior Ministry added that operations are underway to capture the suspects in 43 provinces.

It said the suspects are accused of defrauding hundreds of people and causing losses of millions to state revenues.

In one of the scheme, members of an enterprise forged tax registers with the stolen information of legal businesses and thus, tricked banks into giving them loans.

They are also accused of forging promissory notes or forging new names on existing promissory notes to obtain money.
