Fake US Embassy in Ghana Issued Travel Docs for Ten Years Before Being Shut Down

A fake US embassy operated in Ghana for ten years before being shut down last month, the US State Department reports.

Despite being a total sham, the “embassy” in Ghana’s capital, Accra, did provide real, albeit fraudulently obtained, US visas and other documents, as well as counterfeit bank records, education records, birth certificates and more for $6,000, the State Department reported November 2.

“For about a decade it operated unhindered; the criminals running the operation were able to pay off corrupt officials to look the other way, as well as obtain legitimate blank documents to be doctored,” the State Department report explained.
