    Ghana Passport, Fake or not

    Asked Jan 27, 2009, 10:36 PM 7 Answers
    Dear Sir,

    Good day to u. Sir, I actually love a girl from your country Ghana. I love her very much and I would like to marry her.

    I used to send her money every time she asks. But now she had send her passport copy for the visa money and all. I doubt her passport is original or not.

    I have attached the passport copy for your reference. I beg you to provide just this information that whether the passport is fake or not. My decision regarding this, is in your hands.

    Please send us reply by return. Your response by return would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks & Regards,
    MIRACLEMAN

    One thing catches my eye. On the suspect passport it is printed,place of birth, australia, this being the case she would had an australian passport initially to leave the country then get a passport for ghana.

    Well that picture has clearly been added afterwards.

    The African countries are well known for SCAMS of this nature.
    I bet she's asking for several hundred to cover the visa as well?

    Have a read of this sticky: http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/visas-p...ns-171375.html

    This passport is 100% fake... photo has been added. Normally when take passport photo, especially for females, ears must be seen.. same in all countries.

    Important, if she was born in Australia, she will automatically obtain Australian passport which allows her to travel more than half the world with visa upon arrival. She does not need Ghana passport..

    See many others here: Ghana passports, 2007 - Anti-Fraud International

    This is another must-read.. http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/visas-p...ud-288039.html

    Back again. If you look at the number on the side of the passport it is a mirror image, but immediately not eye catching. There are also other strange markings on it. Sorry old boy you have been had.

    That is a Fake passport and there are VERY few ladies with that skin complexion in GHANA
    If you want to know how to check a pasport read this

    Ghana passports follow this format as do most countries


    Each passport has a data page and a signature page. Illustration: data page and signature page -- right.

    A data page has a visual zone and a machine-readable zone. The visual zone has a digitized photograph of the passport holder, data about the passport, and data about the passport holder:

    Photograph
    Type [of document, which is "P" for "passport"]
    Code [of the issuing country, which is "USA" for "United States of America"]
    Passport No.
    Surname
    Given Name(s)
    Nationality [which is "United States of America"]
    Date of Birth
    Place of Birth
    Sex
    Date of Issue
    Date of Expiration
    Authority
    Endorsements
    At the bottom of a data page is the machine-readable zone, which can be read both visually and by an optical scanner. The machine-readable zone consists of two lines. There are no blank spaces in either line. A space which does not contain a letter or a number is filled with "<".

    The first line of a machine-readable zone of a passport contains a letter to denote the type of travel document ("P" for passport), the code for the citizenship of the passport holder (e.g. "USA" for "United States of America"), and the name (surname first, then given name or names) of the passport holder.

    The second line of a machine-readable zone of a passport contains the passport number, supplemented by a check digit; the code of the issuing country (e.g. "USA" for "United States of America"); the date of birth of the passport holder, supplemented by a check digit; a notation of the sex of the passport holder ("M" or "F"); the date of expiration of the passport, supplemented by a check digit; and, at the end of the line, two overall check digits.

    A signature page has a line for the signature of a passport holder. A passport is not valid until it is signed by the passport holder. If a holder is unable to sign his passport, it is to be signed by a person who has legal authority to sign on the holder's behalf.[39]


    [edit] Place of birth

    Agreeing here that this is for sure a fake... a real Ghana passport has3 blue stamps (like the one just above the photo) that go down across the whole picture to make it harder to paste in a fake picture... which is what was done here.

    This girl will keep talking to you only as long as you keep sending money, she is scamming you... quite successfully so far.

    Edit: I just zoomed in 400% on a very good monitor and see a lot more signs this is fake... The photo cuts off the first letter of the words to the right of it, the text of the person's name is much better resolution than than line above that says "Surname" and "Other name", the spaces between the blocks of text look blurry as if someone digitally erased data and then pasted new words into the document... wow... it's actually a very bad fake.
