Customer Question

I met someone online through she sent me a picture of her us passport but it expired and she moved to Ghana with her mom. She tells me she wants to come back to USA and be with me but tells me it's going to cost $945.00 to renew her passport,medical paper,and police papers. Is this true? I'm asking because she told me this is what the embassy told her.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.

Unfortunately I must tell you that this definitely sounds like a common scam that I have heard many times. Renewing a passport does not cost $945 in any country. A US passport renewal is less than $200. There is no medical or police papers required to travel back to the US as a US citizen. All she needs to do is buy a ticket and hop on a plane with her valid US passport. The best test to do is say that you cannot pay this and see how long she continues to talk to you.

I'm so sorry to have to tell you that. I do hope that I am wrong but I don't think I am.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
