This is how 419 has always worked by pandering to the greed of the potential victims. It Serves those women right.
Negative. Many of such (female) victims are not really greedy, they actually have in their minds the good intention to help their lover-men recover or redeem the money which they (are fooled to) believe is rightfully theirs.

Hello,
I have this pressing query. I submitted application for a UK Visitor Visa and statement of Acc. Does it mean i wont have to make any transactions with the account until VISA Approval? Do they even get to contact the banks involved? Because i have pressing need to make withdrawal. Thank you.
Usual activities can continue in the account in normal ways, you can deposits money into it as well as withdraw money from it as regular, but it would be bad if you are withdrawing a significant sum of money: by the way, it is also bad if you deposited lump sum of money into the account in the first place.

They obviously are. Cos I've been issued a visa with a passport I renewed using my maiden name in July of this year. Going to abuja wasn't appealing. And they didn't have a problem with it.
I see.., In my wife's case, her passport became invalid after 6 months, she was instructed to do all the legal procedures with the ministry of internal affair during the 6 months period.
By the way, she is not a Nigerian.

Hello, pstfrancis,
I got married in 2012 and have done a change of name in the newspaper and all of that bit. But cos I refused to go to abuja in Nigeria to change the name, I renewed my passport in my maiden name. Rmbr in the newspaper change of name notice, it states that all documents remain valid. All ur wife need do is to include her marriage certificate and the newspaper clipping in her applications or whatever. That covers it. I've never had a problem with this for over 2 and a half yrs.
Hope this helps.
Yes, all existing documents remain valid, but I don't think that include the future documents or the documents that are renewed after the change of name

hello house,
pls i got a sponsor to UK with my family under tier 2 Religion and my wife passport has expired, we were thinking of just renewing the old bearing her maiden name instead of changing it to the new name she is bearing, pls i want to know if their is any danger in still retaining her maiden name even though we are married with a child. will it affect us in UK or it doesnt matter. the reason we still want to just renew her maiden name is because of the stress involve in doing change of name.
thanks for ur response honourable house
There would be no danger if she has not officially adopted your surname and has not signed the document to that effect, but if she has signed the (surname change) document, then, a future passport bearing her maiden name is invalid.

I had printed my SOA which was stated for June to August, but when my Interview date has been changed to October now, can i still use that same Statement of Account?
I suspect that there is something fishy with the statement of account because, if it is genuine, what makes it difficult to get an up-to-date statement?

You are a married adult with kids, but have poor financial situation, you are going to the UK as one of the delegates of eight people to attend a Church event, and your Cousin who is an external body is sponsoring your trip to attend a Church event that he is not part of, and yet, he is neither connected to the purpose nor is your trip going to be of any obvious benefit to him...:
You judge the situations taking these circumstances into consideration and tell me if you think it is reasonable for a visa officer to issue you a visa.
So, there you have your answer

Can she use her boyfriend bank statement with her own? And can she present just 2 month bank statement if she's going to include his own bank statement.

I think your "friend" is in a better position to explain "her" own situation.

Castalia: Gurus,
I intend to travel to UK in November. I already have the visa, BUT my passport expires Feb next year. I m spending just 2 weeks and will be back same November.
Am I likely to have any issues travelling (since the passport is less than 6months to expiry?).?
Please advice
No, you are fine, even a valid visa in an expired passport is tender-able, the 6 months requirement is only when you are applying for the visa

princesszizi:

@Vicjustice, thanks for the prompt reply. I was actually misled into hiding that fact by someone whom I was introduced to and who claimed to be an expert in visa applications and related issues. I related my circumstances to her but she advised against my mentioning my fiancé in the applications, her reasons being that the mention of a fiancé may give the ECO the impression that I do not intend to leave the UK; that I am actually going there to settle permanently. My fiancé was supposed to send me an invitation then but she advised against it. That was how I got myself into this mess now. Pls, what do you advise me to do now? Do I forget about applying for now? I really wish I can be by my fiancé when he graduates in November.
I agree with Johnkent, it is always unsafe to apply for a visa within a short time after being refused in earlier application for reason of insufficient fund: a financial situation can not genuinely change (for better) within such a short time unless you hit a jackpot.
And if you are to make future application, you must avoid mentioning your fiancé except you want to forward-date your relationship

@ Vicjustice many thanks for that clarification. About my finances...with approx 800000 NGN in my salary account and a written commitment frm my bro in the UK to house feed us as well as his bank statement, do you think I the ECO will be satisfied with that sum?
It depends on what you work as and how much you earn: I mean, for example, a person who works as an Engineer is a reputable company and earns N200k monthly, but has N500k in his bank account has better chance than a person who works as a Secretary in a Lawyer's office and earns N50k but has a saving of N1m

tobey2ng: @Vicjustice,can someone applying for tourist visa get a visa without personal tax clearance because the tax was never deducted from the person salary and the person doesn't have 1.Please advise sir
There are different kind of employments, and various ways that tax regulations are complied with by employers even though the employee's salary payslips do not display the evidence of tax deductions. Therefore, i would say YES to your question; a person can get a visa without personal tax clearance if the person is not self-employed, is in a full time/permanent employment, and the company is legitimately recognized and is in compliance with tax regulation.

princesszizi: Hi Nlanders, I am new on this forum and I appreciate the way people's questions are being answered here. I hope mine will get a similar treatment. My fiancé is running a Masters degree program in the UK and between July and August this year, I applied twice for a tourist visa to spend my summer vacation in the UK but I was refused on both occasions on the ground that I did not supply sufficient evidence of fund. Now, my fiancé wants to send me an invitation to attend his graduation ceremony in November but my problem now is that I never mentioned my fiancé in my two previous applications (though I mentioned his sister who is a permanent resident in the UK). Pls, what do I do to convince the ECO that I am genuine, having failed to mention my fiancé in my previous applications?
A person who is in such a serious relationship as a Fiancé to you is definitely someone to have been mentioned in your previous applications, and for the fact that you had concealed such a serious information, you could be in some sort of trouble if they found out (that you had given deceptive answers to the questions regarding your relatives in the UK). That could get you banned for 10 years.

Wow so what else can I do? This is just the reason I don't want to apply yet. Please any other alternative
Do what is right for the legalization and the taxation of the company.
ironbender101: Also my company has not started trading yet. Can I still get the TCC for a new coy? I registered in 2012 this is really giving me concern.
You registered the company in 2012? Therefore, it should have 2 years of taxation record.
Without this compliance, I don't see how you can get a visa with it.
My recommendation is, go and pay your arrear taxes, and apply next year after you have paid the 2015 tax in time. If you go and pay the 2 years arrears and then applied for a visa, the Visa Officer would observe the date that the taxes were paid and understand that your company does not normally pay its taxes, and that you only made the payment for the purpose of the visa application, and that would mean REFUSAL.

I wanna tell them in my covering letter that I wanna go watch ma club's match for 14days in London. Should I go ahead and apply?
NO, your application would be refused if you are using a business that does not comply with tax regulations as a source of income for the simple reason that your business can not be evaluated and therefore, it is deemed illegal.

Thank you so much.
Pardon me. I'd thought the information (background) I gave was comprehensive enough for anyone to advise me with.
The offer is 100% legit & there's absolutely no fee involved.
The company is a football club. A Public Liability Company. My brother had participated in a season-long competition for their fans (directly on their official website) & he eventually emerged top globally.
Prize: A pass for two to watch the team train OR a ticket for two to watch the team play (amongst other treats). We settled for the latter.
I'll really appreciate it if you can advise me accordingly.
None of us has any travel history, hence, the apprehension about our visa application being rejected on ground of insufficient financial support.
Like I'd earlier posted, we have all other documents handy (including the invitation letter, hotel & flight bookings sent by that FC).
Thank you so much.
NB: I tried sending you a PM to give references to confirm the legitimacy of the programme, not sure I connected.
Well, there is no need to go into details because, (even if the organisation is legitimate), the invitation offer is just a complementary treat, it is by no way sufficient to award you a visa, you have to meet the full requirements for Tourist visa.
These sort of offers are only good for people who do not need a visa to enter the UK, or those who already hold visas, or others who can easily satisfy the requirements for tourist visa

I would really appreciate the help.

He doesn't have to be a relative or to bear your surname, anyone with legal status can invite you, it is just up to you to meet the requirements: you might need to explain why he is inviting you and what you intend to do whilst in the UK.

Why would you pass through this stringent requirement just to go on a vacation to Singapore, or is anything else the reason that you want to go there?
If this is what is required of you, why not look else where for the vacation instead of begging absolute strangers in the internet to introduce you?

Ok...I just went through the thread again. you've answered most of the questions. I can make deposits and withdraw from the account anytime. I actually have a current account in the same bank but I guess it's kind of complex transferring money into the current account. It would makes things complex and make me sound desperate...what do you think?
It would be ok if you transferred money from one account to the other as both accounts are yours: just ensure that you provide evidence of such transaction and that the the origins of the funds are comprehensive.
