La Chine en a marre que les USA menacent son trésor de guerre et s'apprêtent à lâcher le dollar en mettant en vente leur stock de Bons du Trésor, ce qui mettra le coup de grâce au Dollar pour de bon...
...Et voilà-t'y-pas que je gagne la Green Card, rien que ça.
J'ai gagné quoi en fait? Eh bien, je vous le donne en mille, j'ai obtenu le droit de profiter du rêve américain moyennant paiement de la modique somme de 880$ représentant "les frais de visa".
De surcroît, ôh générosité toute américaine, j'ai gagné également le droit de prendre avec moi toute ma famille, au sens large (quand je me suis inscrit à la Green Card Lottery il y a des années, on avait le droit de prendre son conjoint et, éventuellement, ses enfants, sous condition d'âge, mais les besoins financiers des USA n'étaient bien évidemment pas les mêmes ), jusqu'aux cousins.
...Evidemment, chaque personne doit payer ses 880$ et il n'y a pas de réduction pour les enfants.
Je vous laisse apprécier :
Je vous mets le texte, au cas où certains auraient besoin de l'aide de Babelfish pour extraire tout l'humour de ce puissant sketch absolument tordant :
Nous extrayerons le fait qu'il est recommandé d'effectuer le paiement avant la dernière limite..parce qu'il y a une limite...que nous devrons le faire par Western (forcément, c'est américain, ça coûte cher et ça rapporte des impôts, imaginez plusieurs centaines de milliers d'immigrants payant par Western, il n'y a pas de petit profit ) et toutes les petites conditions qu'on vous exprime. Déjà, on est content de savoir que les rapports diplomatiques avec la France sont tels que les français dépendant du consulat anglais, et non pas français...Dear Thierry Curty ,
Congratulations ! You are among those randomly selected and registered for further consideration in the diversity immigrant program. Selection guarantees that
you will receive a United States Permanent Resident Card(also known as Green Card or Diversity Visa) only if you follow the instructions for further processing.
Is the Diversity Visa FREE ?
No. There is a big confusion. Only the participation in the Diversity Visa Lottery was free but the winners must pay the visa processing fees.
The fee is used to process your visa related documents and verify your identity.
Please read and follow all the instructions very carefully. With the Diversity Visa (also known as Green Card) you will enjoy all the advantages and benefits of a US permanent resident, including health and education benefits, and employment opportunities along with guidance in your new country, orientation sessions and programs to integrate into mainstream American society. Once received you can use it at any time you want to move in the United States or just travel. The visa must be renewed after 10 years.
Although you will have all the rights that a U.S. citizen has in the United States, without a relative or friend in the United States you may find the relocation difficult and expensive due the lack of experience in the American society. Therefore the U.S. Government helps you with the accommodation and offers you along with each visa Health Insurance (Freedom HSA Direct Individual Health insurance for 1 year), Dwelling(Apartment in any city you prefer, 1 bedroom for 3 months ), a guaranteed job(in the field that you are are currently qualified so you can start working even from the first week you arrive in the United States and get paid as U.S citizen. ) and education (for U.S. Students or Higher Education through EducationUSA. It includes transfer to a U.S college or Univeristy so you can continue your educational study. More details can be found at http://educationusa.state.gov/ .)
We remind you that only the visa processing fee ($880) is mandatory and the visa is guaranteed upon receiving the payment.
Accompanying family members(wife/husband, fiancee, brothers, sisters, children, cousins) may be included in the program and their visas will be provided at the same time with yours so you can travel/move together in the same time. However the fees must be paid per person and each member(e.g wife, brother, parents, children, cousin) must pay $880. There is no discount for children.
Visa Payment processing instructions
The fees must be paid using Western Union money transfer and will be processed by the U.S. embassy in the United Kingdom.
Western Union is a leading provider of International person-to-person money transfer. With more than 150 years experience and 245,000 Agent locations in over 200 countries and territories, Western Union is recognized for sending money quickly, reliably, and safety.
You can send the payment in U.S. dollars or equivalent of your local currency.
Click on the following link to find the nearest Western Union agency and send the fees payment :
Find Western Union Agency If you are unable to find a Western Union agency near your location, you may ask a relative or friend to pay the fee on your behalf. After you find a Western Union agency you need to go with cash money, an identity card(e.g passport or national identity card) and send the payment to the U.S. embassy agent address in United Kingdom:
The payment must be sent to the above U.S. embassy agent address in United Kingdom because the U.S. Government decided this based on the diplomatic relations with your country.

Within 72 hours, you will receive a confirmation via email with your Case Number/Confirmation Number and exact date and time(approx. 2 days) of the final interview. Upon successful interview you will receive your documents and travel information to move in the United States. Under no circumstances your visa status won't be affected by the interview.
The payment must be sent via Western Union no later than April 23, 2011. You are strongly encouraged not to wait until the last day to pay. Heavy demand may result in system delays.
Under no circumstances can diversity visas be issued or adjustments approved after this date, nor can family members obtain diversity visas to follow-to-join the principal applicant in the U.S. after this date.
The visa processing fee(US$ 880) is mandatory for each person and the U.S. Government doesn't offer any discount, loan or exception.
You have been selected winner of the Diversity Visa lottery so the visa is guaranteed upon receiving the payment fees on time.
A hard copy of this letter will be mailed to your postal address upon receiving the payment fees.
Please be advised that even through you are a winner of Diversity Visa your Case Number/Confirmation Number will be provided only after you send the payment confirmation of the fees. Please do not contact us to ask for the Case Number/Confirmation Number.
