Fake US Embassy In Ghana Issued Fake Visas And Other Documents For A Decade

A complete bogus US embassy run by an organized crime outfit issued fake documents out its location for ten years. The building flew an American flag three days as week and inside they had a photo of President Obama and signs inside that made it look real.


How did they manage to get away with this for so long?

The fake embassy remained opened so long because “the criminals running the operation were able to pay off corrupt officials,” according to the State Department.

The report states the elaborate scheme was run by Ghanaian and Turkish organized crime rings and a Ghanaian attorney who practices immigration and criminal law.

They advertised services:

The operation even advertised its services through fliers and billboards and charged customers as much as $6,000 — with options to buy fake supporting documents such as phony birth certificates and bank records.

The obvious question is this: Who received the fake documents and what countries did people go? Officials didn’t answer:

Two State Department officials confirmed to FoxNews.com on Sunday that the report was real, amid a proliferation of so-called “fake news.”

However, the officials declined to provide additional information including details about how many bogus passports might have been issued or on how many people from the West African nation could be living illegally in other countries.


I’m going to go out on a limb and say they have no clue. If the documents are fake, how can any of them be traced? Hearings need to be held by oversight committees. State Department officials need to answer for how this could go on so long and if there is any risk that terrorists utilized the bogus embassy to make it to other countries.
