For ten years, a U.S. embassy operated quietly in Accra, the capital of the West African country of Ghana. The facility’s work was discreet because it was run by a criminal network of Ghanaian and Turkish citizens. The embassy wasn’t an embassy at all, but it managed to issue authentic, fraudulently obtained visas and other U.S. documents for a decade. The hitch is that these were in fact authentic documents and were issued by Turkish forgers for an average price of $6,000. The Department of State has not explained how the gang obtained genuine US visas.
