I've read posts by self proclaimed 'EB-5 visa due diligence experts' Wassem Amin and Michael Gibson all over the web, and they claimed to do due diligence, even though I've been saying for several years that regional centers commit Investor Fraud, Securities fraud, securities law violations and money laundering. Even in the past, I've personally said that Wassem Amin and Michael Gibson were being negligent and had misled EB-5 investors by claiming to have done due diligence, and I would not be surprised if EB-5 visa investors who've lost their time, money and green cards will start suing these phonies for damages.
Today, it is a good idea to ask these so called experts on due diligence why is it that ICE says that nothing can be done to prevent the rampant fraud in regional centers. See the secret ICE Memo recommending shutting down of ALL regional centers at ICE recommends shutting down all regional centers in a secret memo! It is possible that I as a lone individual may have been biased in denouncing regional centers for the past 10 years to further my own business, but when an investigative agency of the US government (ICE) also recommends that ALL regional centers should be shut down due to fraud, money laundering and other national security concerns, then it is time for EB-5 visa investors to understand that they were LIED to by phonies such as Michael Gibson and Wassem Amin.
I can confidently say that at least 99% if not 100% of the regional centers commit securities fraud, investor fraud, money laundering and violation of securities laws, because I'm a qualified CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) who has researched regional centers thoroughly for the past 10 years, and anyone who is interested can check my credentials at Association of Certified Fraud Examiners to confirm that I am qualified to speak about fraud. My agenda is not to gain business for my business brokerage as much as it is to protect EB-5 visa investors from fraud and to expose the rot of corruption that has let crooked politicians, sleazy law firms and organized crime work in tandem to destroy thousands of families and cheat them out of BILLIONS of Dollars!
EB-5 visa seekers should remember that Genuine Direct Investment businesses are THE BEST option to get the EB-5 visa quickly, safely and usually profitably for the following reasons:
- Faster processing and approval times.
- Easy exit strategy.
- Investors usually get a much higher Return on Investment.
- Investors usually get a much higher Capital gain, whereas regional center investors usually get capital losses.
- Our clients have a 100% approval rate of I-526 and I-829, while those who choose regional centers or other partnerships don't.
- Our clients have very little risk as we conduct extensive due diligence and work hard to prevent fraud and conflict of interest, whereas regional centers and partnerships are overrun with fraud and conflict of interest.
- Full control of business and capital, which helps prevent fraud, conflict of interest and losses.
- Our clients ALWAYS have full control of their business and their money. Those who choose regional centers and partnerships usually have to kiss their money goodbye, and are STUCK for 5-9 years.
- We offer a written guarantee of freedom from fraud and conflict of interest, whereas our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee.
- We offer a written guarantee of FULL disclosure of material facts on an ongoing basis, whereas our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee.
- We offer a written guarantee of full fee refund in case a client is rejected due to our team's fault, while our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee because they are incompetent cowards who are unsure about the quality of their work.
- Since 2004, our clients have NEVER been denied at the I-526 and I-829 stage, and have NEVER suffered operating or capital losses, and have usually earned over 22% annual Return on Equity because of our focus on due diligence and our extensive efforts to reduce risk by preventing fraud and conflict of interest. Try finding a regional center or partnership that boasts of this record.
- We are quite objective in our assessments, and owe a fiduciary duty to our EB-5 visa investor clients, while those who sell regional center and partnership securities usually do not owe fiduciary duties to EB-5 visa investors. In plain words, we are required by law to put our clients interests first, and we do so because it helps us more than it helps our clients! We advise our clients diligently and help them make solid decisions.
- We are probably the ONLY firm that actually encourages our clients to always stay in full control of their business and their funds at every stage as this helps us avoid escrow accounting and reduces potential for fraud, embezzlement and litigation.
