Why do EB-5 visa investors who select regional centers experience capital losses and visa denials?
The recent figures published by the USCIS shows that due to increased scrutiny of EB0-5 visa petitions, there's a rejection rate of over 25% for I-526 visa investors. See link at https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Resources/Reports%20and%20Studies/Immigration%20Forms%20Data/Employment-based/I526_performancedata_fy2016_qtr2.pdf
One of the reasons that leads to denial of the EB-5 visa petition is the shocking fact that even today, regional centers pay out a large portion of an EB-5 visa investor's investment funds in ILLEGAL commissions. The SEC recently fined American Life Regional Center over $1 Million (see article at https://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/2016/34-78042.pdf) for ILLEGALLY paying commissions to agents and attorneys for referring EB-5 visa investors. If EB-5 visa investors demand that the regional center disclose the commissions and junk fees paid to unlicensed visa agents and attorneys acting as securities brokers, they will discover that at least 10% and up to 40% of the investment amount is wasted in junk fees and illegal commissions by most regional centers. This fraud causes a sharp reduction in the amount available to invest in the business, due to which it becomes harder to PROFITABLY create 10 jobs.
In contrast to the dishonest CEO's of regional centers who routinely violate securities laws, commit securities fraud, and engage in conflict of interest, we at Smart Business Broker, Inc. do not charge junk fees or use the investment funds of EB-5 visa investors to pay illegal commissions to unlicensed brokers. We have a strict policy of zero fraud and conflict of interest, and actually offer this guarantee in writing to our clients.
Not only do we offer our EB-5 visa investor clients a written guarantee of full disclosure of material facts, we also have an open books policy, while regional center CEO's will usually refuse to offer this guarantee, as they usually violate securities laws and engage in conflict of interest too.
Moreover, unlike regional center executives and attorneys who illegally offer and sell regional centers' securities, we don't engage in conflict of interest, due to which our EB-5 visa investor clients are able to PROFITABLY create 10 jobs.
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:
1. Faster processing and approval times.
2. Easy exit strategy.
3. Investors usually get a much higher Return on Investment.
4. Investors usually get a much higher Capital gain, whereas regional center investors usually get capital losses.
5. Our clients have a 100% approval rate of I-526 and I-829, while those who choose regional centers or other partnerships don't.
6. 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.
7. Full control of business and capital, which helps prevent fraud, conflict of interest and losses.
EB-5 visa investors need to remember that we offer THE BEST service when it comes to offering a turnkey solution for the following reasons:
1. 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 with no control over their money and a very high risk of capital loss.
2. We offer a written guarantee of freedom from fraud and conflict of interest, whereas our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee.
3. We offer a written guarantee of FULL disclosure of material facts on an ongoing basis, whereas our competitors usually don't offer this guarantee.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
If you're an EB-5 visa investor who wants to get their green card quickly, safely and in a usually profitable manner, please contact us. You'll be glad you did!
