In China, exposing fraud is a risky business, due to which fraud against EB-5 visa investors continues unabated. Genuine Direct Investments are the only safe option for EB-5 and EB-1C visa investors?
I recently read an interesting article that seems to explain why fraudsters are able to defraud EB-5 visa investors with impunity in China (see article http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/08/29/business/in-china-detecting-fraud-riskier-than-doing-it.html )
According to the latest figures released by USCIS, the number of EB-5 visa approvals has dramatically dropped to levels last seen in Q4 2013, as USCIS continues to scrutinize EB-5 visa petitions for fraud and money laundering. The number of I-526 denials for 2014 has already exceeded the number of denials in 2013, with several weeks still left in the year. The number of I-829 denials has also sharply exceeded I-829 denials for 2013, and the MOST IMPORTANT statistic that regional center supporters do NOT disclose is the fact that even though regional centers file over 93% of the EB-5 visa petitions, the number of investors who actually get their I-829 (permanent green card) through regional centers are about 42% of those investors who actually filed I-526 petitions. Questions is, what happens to the rest?
Let us ask a simple question: WHY is it that despite regional centers filing thousands of petitions, less than half of the investors actually get permanent green cards (I-829 approvals)? In contrast, why is it that every single client of ours has actually received I-829 approval?
The answer is as simple and shocking as the statistics above:
ICE has recommended shutting down ALL regional centers due to rampant fraud and conflict of interest. Regional Center marketers and promoters usually never disclose the material fact that regional center petitions take far longer to process compared to Direct Investment petitions, and that a big portion of the money doesn't even get invested in the business.
We should remember that "It is HARD to earn money and easy to BURN money."
Here are some of the reasons that EB-5 visa investors should ALWAYS choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses:
Regional Center CEO's and CFO's will always refuse to certify that they disclose ALL material facts to their investors and don't engage in fraud or conflict of interest. In a Genuine Direct Investment Business, it is quite unusual to encounter fraud or conflict of interest. This alone is THE biggest reason why EB-5 visa investors usually experience capital loss if they opt for regional centers or unsafe Direct Investments (such as Twistee Treats or Voodoo or Marcos Pizza), while those who opt for Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually NEVER experience capital loss.
EB-5 visa investors who choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually earn annual ROI of 15% to 40%, while those who select regional centers usually earn 0-2% annual ROI.
Genuine Direct Investment Businesses offer easy exit strategies to EB-5 visa investors while those who invest in regional centers experience TERRIBLE exit strategies.
Regional Centers usually commit securities fraud and securities law violations while this is usually unheard of in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses.
EB-5 visa investors usually get capital gains if they invest in a Genuine Direct Investment Business and usually don't get capital gains if they invest in a regional center.
EB-5 visa investors in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses see faster processing and approval of their petitions, while it takes much longer to get an immigrant visa through regional centers.
EB-5 visa investors in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses have a higher chance of getting their permanent green card, while those who opt for regional centers have a lower chance of getting their green card.
The ONLY safe, fast and usually profitable way to get an EB-5 visa is through investment in a GENUINE Direct Investment Business. An even faster and easier way to get a PERMANENT green card is to apply for the L1A visa and then the EB-1C visa.
