There is a person I met while in Greece who said she is a Belgian

Customer Question

There is a person I met while in Greece who said she is a Belgian National but now in Sunyani, Ghana as a nurse. Her name isXXXXX and she has expressed a wish to travel to the UK to revisit me. I am now becoming suspicious of her actual status as she has told me that her Belgian Passport has now expired and she has visited the Belgian 'Embassy' in Accra, Ghana to apply for a new passport (There is a Consulate Office in Accra but no Embassy!). She also tells me that while applying for her new Passport at the Belgian 'Embassy' in Accra she has requested that her surname be changed to another of her choice and that this will delay the issue of her new Belgian Passport by some 1 or 2 weeks!
The Belgian Embassy in London can give me no assistance! Perhaps you would be good enough to advise me as to whether a name change followed by the issue of a new Belgian Passport is feasible from the Belgian Consulate in Accra within a 2 week period for a Belgian National living in Ghana? I suspect that skulduggery is afoot as she has asked me forward money to pay for her flight to the UK!
I would appreciate your view on this matter.
Many thanks,
Roger Bowen

Why would you even consider paying for her flight?
