Good morning sir/madam. Please I want to know whether I qualify to apply for visitor's visa to the United State.

I am a Ghanaian by nationality and birth but I am an English volunteer in Colombia in the ministry of Education.

I would be grateful if I could get some dependable information as well as the requirements in order to visit the state for few weeks and return.Thank you

False information
Need help in denying visa to a Juan Guillermo Arenas Gaviria. I believe he obtain my residential info for his own gain in bringing himself and his friends into USA.i have never sign no invitation form of any kind. Agreement was he'd come live with me and help him get a job. But thru out our testing one another be got my address and i was not aware of the forms im suppose to fill out. He also got passport thru me. Im not asking for reimbursement but only some help in denying visa to him and his friends whom i don't know. I do believe that is fausafication.
Thank you

Re: Dr. Jason Bergandi's suicide attempt
In Valledupar Colombia is where Dr. Jason Alan Bergandi who is a Board Certified Trauma, Orthopedic, and Spine Surgeon who was looking for work here in this Colombian city. Due to the physical and psychological abuse from his common-law-wife, Alba Jannica, who is giving erroneous reports to the news media saying that the cause of Dr. Bergandi's suicide attempt was the result of her telling him she was leaving. Currently she has an expired Visa to the US and I fear for my friend's life since in the past she has stolen from him in different occasions with the help of her family members. Dr. Bergandi's attempt in finding a job has suffered several sabotagings from this lady. If anyone can please help in finding his family members in Illinois. I can be reached at the following number 301-552-7977 from inside Colombia and 011-57-301-552-7977 from the US.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I Was Just Defrauded /Robbed in Colombia of over $4,000. Nobody Cares!
I recently returned from a vacation in Colombia from February 4th and 10th. I sustained over $3,100 in unauthorized credit card withdrawals and $1,000 in stolen cash in connection with a young lady claiming to love me in. She "invited" me down to meet her family that apparently functions as a family criminal enterprise.

My bankers and I have provided proof of the fraud, provided all relevant names and addresses of the
perpetrators, cedula numbers, etc. to the local police and the national police who apparently lack
the time, resources, or reservations to detain and question the guilty parties.

I have enjoyed previous travels to Colombia, but have no intention of ever going again. It is a grim, seething hotbed of endemic violence, criminality and pervasive corruption.

With every fiber of my being, I will tell family, friends, and associates what a decadent cesspool of liars, thieves, and thugs Colombia really is.

Anyone reading this is invited to contact me at the abovementioned address, or call my cell at
(843)424-6129. The Colombian police are less than useless and will always protect their own.

Colombian Citizens
There are many Colombian citizens that would love to see this great country The United States of America. I have traveled to Colombia on several occasions and have met law abiding citizens of Colombia that are fascinated about the USA. Some or most will never have the opportunity to see this great USA but I fill if a US Citizen that has no criminal record and would like to invite a law aiding Colombian Citizen or any citizen from any other country for that matter he or she should be able too. This would be beneficial to the US economically and other countries.
