Just want to give this thread the end.

My friend used http://www.travelvisaexpress.com
paid somewhat $340.00 and RECEIVED (I still can't believe it) her passport in
3 weeks. We mailed it out on 10th of January and she got it back on Feb,6.

We were so affraid of the scam, but here it is. I hope it'll help to someone else. It does look like a passport, but green.

Absolutely, you cannot travel to the EU on a green card. An US permanent resident must have a visa to enter; visa must be issued by the country you arrive in. If flying directly to France, then a French visa. If traveling to England to change planes to France, then a British visa. A visa must be affixed to something and the only document issued by the USA is called a "Reentry Permit". The current issuance time for this document is 16 months! My husband is officially "stateless" and therefore no possible passport from any country. His application was received on 1/31/03 and we're still waiting. The website is the Dept of Homeland Security, Division of Citizenship and Immigration (no more INS) www.ucis.gov
