Hi
I am afraid that someone is confused here.
If an over stayer turns up at an airport to leave the country then their passport is stamped to ensure that they cannot return and then they are placed on the plane.
The stamp is available at the airport there is no question of anyone going from Birmingham to Scotland at all.
They are not detained and there is no fine to pay - they simply are not allowed to return to the UK.
Unless this is a friend whom you have known personally (by which I mean met) for many years please do not send them any more money - and if they are a close personal friend then I suggest that you arrange for him to speak to his embassy as clearly he is the victim of a scam.

NOW ONCE THEY PUT HIM ON THE PLANE TO LEAVE DO THEY JUST LET HIM GO AND OR IS HE IN TROUBLE WHEN HE ARRIVES IN THE STATES

Hi
So long as he is entitled to enter the US then there is no problem - the UK is simply happy that the over stayer has left voluntarily
