He sent me a link to open online bank account in Turkey so he can wire the investment fund. I did open the account and he wired the money into the account. Bank name Guvenilir Bankasi, now the bank said I need to pay 1,250 usd before they can release the funding into my USA account. He wired from his bank in Japan. MEI Bank in Japan. Is this a real good investor?
It is hard to determine the authenticity of Yamaoka Masatoshi as an investor based on the information given. It is worth noting that it is unusual for banks to ask for transfer fees prior to releasing funds from an international wire transfer. It is advisable to exercise caution when dealing with unsolicited offers or requests for personal information or payment before confirming the identity and credibility of the person or organisation. It is recommended to seek advice from a financial expert or lawyer before engaging in any investment opportunities and to verify the information provided by the investor, the bank and the wire transfer.

Contact the bank directly and ask them, please!
When there are money in the account they ask you to accept fees to be retained from that account, normally. Unless you want all money transferred...
Again, call them and they will advise you! If the account was opened by yourself then you have the security details to access it. If not, then probably it's a scam!
