GHANA: Fraudulent US Embassy Shut Down

On 5 December, State Department officials announced the closure of a non-official, fake US Embassy operating outside of Ghana’s capital city. The fake embassy operated for approximately ten years and issued hundreds of visas. The group charged 6,000 USD per visa. Approximately 150 fraudulent passports have been recovered thus far. The operation is speculated to have been created by crime rings in the area.
