Ihsan Ture, FIFA ref for over 10 years, wrote a book and was in the media a lot because he was the one who dared to go public about match fixing in Turkey.

book
We wish we could read Turkish (we won't even try using a translator site, Turkish is too hard) but we understand that Ture writes that in the 27 years he had been a referee he must have taken charge of at least 50 matches that were fixed. He describes the presents a referee gets, ranging from watches to expensive hotel rooms to women, all common practice according to Ture. He tells about how he helped bribing an Italian referee for a Galatasaray UEFA Cup match (which probably is Pierluigi Pairetto).
