A fake US embassy operating in Ghana for the past decade has finally been shut down — Quartz
For the last decade, a fake US embassy has been operating in Accra, Ghana. On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays, from morning until half noon, an American flag would fly outside a faded pink building. Inside, beneath a photo of president Barack Obama, staff posing as consular officials, took visa applications from unsuspecting Ghanians and other West Africans. The office also issued fake passports, visas, and other documents for about $6,000 a service.
