Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

She is a scammer. If she was born in the US, she is a US citizen and she does not need any kind of a visa or to show any kind of money to come home. Also, she wouldn't be dealing with Ghana immigration to get a visa to visit the US but with US immigration. She's counting on you not to understand enough about immigration to swallow her lies.

If she was not born in the US but is a Ghanaian citizen, she can only qualify for a visa that would allow her to remain here permanently under very limited situations. What kind of a visa does she claim she has that would allow her to remain here? Can you upload the document to this question thread?
