Turkey appears to be linking its demands that the European Union allow visa-free travel for its nationals, to its adoption of the reciprocal agreement that requires Turkey to accept the return of illegal migrants.

(1) Let us hope that the compliance officer will assign a Turkish-speaking new accounts clerk to help with account opening, for that individual will be able to spot a non-native Turkish speaker in a heartbeat, and decline the business. The last thing you want in your bank is someone moving money for a specially designated global terrorist organization.
(2) Did the prospective client forget to alter his place of birth ? If so, you may find that this 'Turk" was born in Israel, or the Palestinian Territories; That's another tip-off.
