Dear XXXXX, I know they have been spying on me to build a case for the visa refusal. Otherwise they have no case. I stupidly joined a dating website in April to alleviate some of the boredom I was feeling. I was always in contact with my fiancee on a daily basis. I also regularly send her gifts by courier, phone topups online to her mobile and monthly cash payments. So there is no question about my commitment to my fiancee. The GCHQ will have seen evidence of all this when they looked through my emails and internet transactions. Instead of passing this information to the UKBA, they sent two women after me through the dating website. The first one claimed to be based in Russia and bombarded me with photos and was expressing her undying love for me, even though we had never met! She cut off contact with me when I refused to call her or give her my phone no. The second woman claimed to be UK based, but on some assignment in Nigeria. We exchanged photos and I agreed to meet her for a drink, when she returned to the UK. I then sent her an email where I told her about what was happening with me and my fiancee, but I disguised the story by claiming it was occurring to a friend rather than myself. The next day, the GCHQ locked my email account. Even Yahoo could not open it for a week. After Yahoo restored my email, I never heard from the second woman. For the week that my email was disabled, I could not access the account no emails were being delivered to it. Also, the day after my email account was locked, there was a high level of noise interference on my mobile phone. The GCHQ were eavesdropping on my conversations. They were also tapping into the phones of anybody I contacted that day. It was one of the most bizzare days in my life! I deeply regret joining the online dating website, because I risk losing my fiancee now even though I love her to bits.
Yes, she has applied for the fiancee visa and it was refused for the following reasons:
(1) Relationship Requirements - You have stated that you met your sponsor in person on 17 August 2012 and that you last saw your sponsor on 27 August 2012. You have stated that you have regular contact with your sponsor via email and telephone. Having viewed the emails you have submitted and taking into account your Pearson English score, I do not find it credible that you wrote your letter of support yourself. I note that your sponsor was divorced on 31 October 2012 in the Croydon County Court and you have stated that you began dating your sponsor in July 2012, which is four months prior to your sponsor obtaining a divorce. You have provided some photographic evidence of meeting your sponsor in Nigeria and some brief details of your meeting. However, this is the only time you met your sponsor in person. I note that you had an application to visit your sponsor in the UK refused and I also note that your sponsor has made no other trips to Nigeria to visit you. I am therefore not satisfied your relationship with your sponsor is genuine and subsisting or that you intend to live permanently together in the UK. I therefore refuse your application under paragraph EC-P.1.1(d) of Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules (E-ECP.2.6 & 2.10);
(2) Financial Requirements - You have stated that you will live in rented accommodation. However, I note that two other people, who are not related to your sponsor, also reside at this property. Given this, I am not satisfied your proposed accommodation will be owned or occupied exclusively by you and your sponsor. I am therefore not satisfied that you will be adequately accommodated without recourse to public funds. I therefore refuse your application under paragraph EC-P.1.1(d) of Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules (E-ECP.3.4).
Dear XXXXX, the answer is yes to both your questions.
Dear XXXXX, I am disappointed that you are telling me the government has not spied on my records when I know that they have, because I witnessed it first hand. The GCHQ did not even try to hide what they were doing. A few days after I spotted their spying activity, they altered the attachments in an email I sent to my brother, to prove to me that they have spied on me and can do whatever they like under the current system. A few weeks after my experience, the Snowden Files became public. I already spoke to my lawyer about the appeal process. He expected the ECO to change his mind after the additional evidence we provided. The ECO has chosen not to do so because the GCHQ provided him with the details of my presence on the dating websites. That is purely my own fault. I should have been more careful with my internet usage during the "review" period! What I primarily wanted you to tell me is if "evidence" obtained by government spying can be presented at an immigration appeal hearing. You have sidestepped answering that question. Why? Snowden has already made us aware that the government agencies have been spying on us, so why do my claims sound so strange? I know what I witnessed first hand.
