Let me start out by saying Hakan Ararat is my facebook name....  not an alias..... and as far as my birth date, I believe that is personal information and try to leave my personal information... personal....

I met this 65 year old american woman in 2007... she helped build a web page for my business for which I had owned sınce 1999. All of the informatıon used on the Mountararattrek websıte was provided by me from my blog http// please note the date this blog was made 2006!, all of the pictures and programs were provıded by me............... Amy Beam has never clımbed Mount Ararat or any mountain for that matter. She has only been to turkey once ın her life and that was in 2007 wıth me. In that 3 month time we developed a close relationship, since then our relationship has ended. Amy is now tryıng to steal my business and my web page.. Yes, she helped design the web page..... but she only owns the domain name, not the trekking company. We made the page together for MY busıness, now she is using the page for her own benefit. She has no licence to practice tourism ın Turkey or Amerıca !  My legal license number is on my sıtes for you to check.  Follow this link and in the Travel Agency Tab search Travel agencies... put my license number 6243  in agency ID and you will see that my company is fully licensed with a class A Tourism License.....Amy Beam has no such license. Amy Beam is taking people to the mountain without any license or the proper permits, using any guides that will work with her. This is highly illegal, you must be a licensed travel agency to get the permits for your trekkers to climb the mountain.

Feel free to visit my new web site and  be confident you are dealing with a fully licensed and professional trekking company

I apologize for any inconvenience this slander has caused you and I hope this clears up any questions or doubts you may have about me. If you would like to take the time to search my name further I am sure you will not fınd any negative things about me. I have been in this business for 15 years now and have always had positıve information posted about me from my past climbers, many of which are now my friends...

Thank you for taking the time to read this notice.
