South Dakota Regional Center victims are still paying the price, while our EB-5 clients are doing great because we serve our clients honestly & professionally.

This is just an example of how those who opted for regional centers are always showing up in the news as victims of fraud.

EB-5 visa seekers can decide for themselves if they wish to be the victims of fraud or learn from the experience of these defrauded victims.

Here are some criteria to judge which Business Broker / EB-5 visa advisor is trustworthy and who isn't:

Does the Broker hold professional license as a Real Estate Broker?
Does the Broker offer an unconditional fee refund in case a client is denied due to incompetence, negligence or malfeasance on the part of the Broker or Broker's affiliates?
Does the Broker have a long track record?
Does the Broker only steer clients towards safe and established franchises such as 5 Guys / KFC / McDonalds etc. or does the Broker steer clients towards riskier franchises such as Marcos Pizza and Voodoo Barbeque?
Does the Broker have a policy of 100% disclosure of all material facts and strict policy against conflict of interest?
Does the Broker have a past history of dealing honestly and ethically, or have they helped swindle hundreds of EB-5 visa seekers out of millions of dollars by failing to disclose material information and violating securities laws?

The only safe option for EB-5 visa seekers is to choose Direct Investment Businesses. For $500,000 investment, Investors can start an auto parts store or 2 convenience stores or a Subway sandwich shop or day care or 2 Mexican fast food outlets or 2 used car lots or 3 scooter & motorcycle dealerships in Brooklyn (NY) or LA County (CA) or Fort Pierce (FL). They can also take bank loans and start a KFC & Taco Bell Locations or banquet halls or other similar businesses, and basically the businesses would depend on the customer’s preference on location and type of business they’d like to run.

For $1,000,000 + $1-3 Million bank loan, clients can get started with movie theatres, sports arenas, skating rinks, etc. Again, they are all profitable, and the business referral I make is based solely upon the client’s preferences.

The above have a few things in common, which make our Direct Investment Business recommendations the smart choice:

1) 0 possibility of fraud as we offer a written guarantee of 0 Conflict of Interest and FULL disclosure of material information to all clients. Regional center executives refuse to give this guarantee to EB-5 investors.

2) The annual ROI usually ranges between 15% to 50%, but averages about 22% for most businesses. In contrast, regional centers usually pay 1% annual ROI.

3) Easy exit strategies, which means investors can sell whenever they want and freely, whereas the shares of the regional center are not liquid and investors are locked in for at least 5 years.

4) Investors in regional centers usually experience capital loss, whereas investors in Direct Investment Businesses usually exit with capital gains. In 9 years as a Broker, I’ve yet to see even one regional center investor exit without capital loss, while my clients had over 20% capital gain.

5) The approval time for petitions based on Direct Investment Businesses is about half that of regional center sponsored petitions, and I’ve 100% approval rate at the I829 stage, and I have yet to see a regional center with even 70% approval at I829 stage.

6) I confidently offer a 100% fee refund guarantee to clients in case I act negligently. Regional center promoters expect investors to pay for the negligence, greed and incompetence of regional centers & their marketing agents.

7) We only steer our clients towards franchises with strong track records and a proven history of success, because we believe in treating our clients with honesty and competence.
