Fake US Embassy In Ghana Shut Down By Authorities After 10 Years Of Operations

So it looks like we won’t wait until Donald Trump sends some of our relatives home before we see them.


A fake US embassy issuing illegally obtained authentic visas was set up in Accra for about ten years now.

Until the fake embassy was shut down this summer, It was not operated by the United States government, but by Ghanaian and Turkish criminals and a Ghanaian attorney practicing immigration and criminal law.

Turkish citizens, who spoke English and Dutch, posed as consular officers and staffed the operation.

Investigations also uncovered a fake Dutch embassy, according to the State Department.


The fake embassy issued fraudulently obtained but legitimate US visas and false identification documents, including birth certificates at a cost of $6,000 each.

Investigations led to arrests of some individuals, and authorities also seized authentic and counterfeit Indian, South African and Schengen Zone visas and 150 passports from 10 different countries along with a laptop and smart phone

“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 statement said.
