70万美金办绿卡打水漂 移民局问了两句就露馅

近年来,不少富裕的中国人选择EB-5投资移民项目,不过随着市场上越来越多项目的加入,已经鱼龙混珠。

很多投资者等了数年,到头来绿卡没拿到,还损失了不少财力。

另走捷径,竹篮打水

H先生(化名)一家来自中国,四年多前开始办理EB-5。

但之后他听说投资移民等待排期超过十年之久,于是H先生就想找个快捷的方法。

这时,A中介(化名)上场了。

A仲介提议H先生尝试在美国加盟连锁餐饮店,从而可获取跨国高级主管的L1签证。

而且中介一再强调L1签证申请排期是比EB-5快不少的EB-1C移民绿卡。

H先生心动,就欣然接纳建议。

并在A仲介的协助下,依序签了合约加盟两家连锁餐饮店,签约后H先生以为已持有两家加盟店各51%股份,可在三年内取得绿卡。

不料申请绿卡时,移民局多次反问?

如何证明自己的是高级主管?

最终移民局拒绝了H先生的申请。

此时A仲介也联系不上。

H先生原是为了快速取得绿卡,到头来不仅是空欢喜一场,还损失70万美元。

快餐店加盟算不算跨国高级主管?

律师表示该美国连锁餐饮店根本不允许非美国公民加盟,且H先生也未获得总公司的加盟批准,不占有该店任何股份。

移民局没有办法证明H先生是加盟店的高级管理人员,加盟店的规模大小与否、是否分别有低中高三端的服务等,都是批准EB-1C移民绿卡的关键。

他强调,本来若不是公司高级主管,却想用跨国高级主管的方式办理绿卡,所付出的代价其实是远超过EB-5投资移民。

例如:若加盟五家美国连锁餐饮店,假设每家20多万美元,就得砸百万元以上的资金, 光是支付中央管理的白领阶级员工也都不便宜。

投资移民还合算吗?

近几年投资移民排期超过十年之久,让许多投资者着急,期望找寻其他移民方法,以便快速获取绿卡。

所以才有了一些不法中介出的招数。往往这些中介看到的就是投资者着急的心态。

事实上移民美国不外乎是靠两种方式:亲属移民与投资╱职业移民,其中投资╱职业移民分为五大类,并按照顺序排期。

投资╱职业移民第一顺位是国际杰出人才、国际跨国经理;

第二类是研究╱博士生职业移民;

第三类是学士职业移民;

第四类是宗教移民;

第五类是许多投资客依靠的投资移民。

如今许多中国投资客办理EB-5,都得等上十几年才取得绿卡,若是人在美国,取得绿卡后可在境内就地转换身分。

假设人在中国,想在中领馆拿移民签证,还得等上额外一至两年,因此许多来自中国大陆的投资客,都在寻找其他更加快速的管道,取得合法移民美国身分。

“不想透过投资移民的民众,除了透过亲属外,也只能选择投资╱职业移民的其他四大类等待排期,而排期最快速的国际杰出人才,或跨国高级管理人员标准高,并非一般人能取得”。

如果现在希望来美申请绿卡,相对稳妥的方法最好先取得F-1学生签证在美读书,在当地找寻最适合自己的方式,且在了解移民过程可能经历的过程再尝试,没有其他方法了。

另外针对来自台湾的投资者,还有一项非移民类别的E2投资签证,俗称“小绿卡”。基本上只要花钱在美国投资生意,只要生意在,投资人可一直待在美国,只是坏处是无法申请绿卡。

Quiros to Pay $84 Million for EB-5 Investment Fraud

Monday, February 5, 2018

On February 2, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced an $84 million settlement ($81.4 million in disgorgement, $2.5 million in prejudgment interest, and a $1 million civil penalty) with Jay Peak ski resort owner Ariel Quiros. The SEC brought charges against Quiros in early 2016 after discovering his nearly decade-long scheme perpetrated through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5 Program). The EB-5 Program offers foreign investors the chance to earn permanent residence in the U.S. if they make an investment of $1 million or $500,000 in U.S. project that creates or preserves at least 10 jobs.

Quiros and William Stenger, the president and CEO of Jay Peak (who has already agreed to cooperate with the SEC), used the EB-5 program to raise more than $350 million from 700 foreign investors for the construction of Jay Peak ski resort in Vermont. Unfortunately for the investors, a majority of their money was never used to construct the ski resort or create jobs. According to the SEC’s complaint, Quiros and Stenger misused more than $150 million of the foreign investors’ money in a “Ponzi-like fashion” to cover losses in unrelated projects. In addition, Quiros used more than $50 million of the investors’ money as his own personal piggy bank, which included the purchase of a luxury condominium, payment of his income taxes, and the acquisition of an unrelated resort.

This $84 million settlement represents only one of the many lawsuits initiated as a result of the fraudulent EB-5 project. In another suit, Jay Peak’s EB-5 investors filed a class-action lawsuit against Raymond James, which held the investors’ funds, and its former branch manager, Joel Burstein, for facilitating the scheme. According to court documents, Raymond James and Burstein aided and abetted the fraud by, among other things, providing millions of dollars in loans to Quiros that were collateralized with the EB-5 investors’ funds, even though they knew that the funds belonged to the investors. In April 2017, Raymond James agreed to a record-setting EB-5 settlement of $150 million with the investors. Citibank also agreed to a $13.3 million settlement for extending a $15 million personal line of credit to Quiros, which was also secured by using investors’ funds as collateral.

In total, the fraudulent EB-5 project and the subsequent litigation lasted more than a decade. In recent years, the SEC has utilized whistleblowers to detect and halt ongoing EB-5 investment fraud well before it grows to Jay Peak’s magnitude. In exchange for information about EB-5 fraud (or any other securities law violation), the SEC offers monetary awards to whistleblowers under its SEC Whistleblower-Reward Program. The SEC has already issued a $14.7 million SEC whistleblower award to a whistleblower who reported EB-5 investment fraud (see details below).
