Reza Zarrab is a business person (this article says he’s a gold trader) that has worked with Erdogan, and is in trouble for corruption here in the states.

I don’t know all the details of this case, but if what this article says turns out to be true, Erdogan will be an extremely unhappy man, that much I do know.
