硅谷华人律师专坑中国同胞 被告上法庭

近日,美国证券交易委员会(Securities  and Exchange Commission)起诉加州硅谷的华人律师陈丹虹Jean Danhong Chen和她的丈夫Tony Jianyun  Ye投资移民欺诈、隐瞒所承办的EB-5投资移民所得超过$1200万,并企图隐瞒证据。


根据法庭提供的文件指出,被告人陈丹虹以移民律师身份为客户办理EB-5投资移民手续,在此期间与多家EB-5投资中心有联系,被告利用职务之便推荐顾客参与一些投资中心的项目从中赚取每笔$15000-$50000不等的佣金,但被告并未告知客户,他们所投资的公司设计利益冲突,根本不可能为客户办下投资移民。

这其中一家名叫Golden State Regional Center LLC的EB-5投资公司实际是被告秘密控制,他们其实就是这家公司的负责人!为了掩饰身份,他们甚至找了一个名叫Kai Hao Robinson的女人充当投资公司唯一的经理。

法庭文件指出陈丹虹在中国聘请一名叫Kuansheng Chen亲戚打理一间由被告控制的移民服务和投资顾问公司,目的是收取被告从投资公司收取到的佣金,而Kuansheng Chen和Kai Hao Robinson因为涉嫌参与诈骗计划,同样被证监会控告。

投资移民套路太多,中国人成最大受害者

投资移民是一些中国有钱人所青睐的移民方式。据了解,过去十年,美国通过投资移民项目(EB-5)向中国人发放了43448张绿卡,中国成为美国投资移民最大来源国家,根据移民局数据显示,超过80%的投资移民申请人来自中国。在屡屡发生的投资移民欺诈案中,很大部分受害者都来自中国。

在诸多诈骗案中,施骗者的套路一般是这样的:虚构一个项目,并提供一套貌似完善的资料,甚至拉拢名人做广告。移民中介公司为了赚取中介费,几乎不加甄别和筛选,一味忽悠投资者。投资者移民心切,未去现场考察就轻信了中介公司,悲剧由此产生。


2017年4月5日,位于圣盖博市的夏利士律师事务所(Harris  Group USA)以及加州投资移民基金会(California Investment Immigration  Fund)遭美国移民局(ICE)和联邦调查局(FBI)探员突袭,该律师事务所华裔负责人陈达,和其律师女儿陈莹莹等人,涉嫌大规模投资移民绿卡诈欺,涉案金额5000万元。很多受害者面临丢了绿卡也丢了投资额的窘境。

The federal government has charged a Northern California law firm with running a fraudulent EB-5 scheme that generated more than $10 million in commission fees from foreign investors.

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s complaint alleges that several people connected with the Law Offices of Jean D. Chen acted in concert to swindle foreign investors — who contribute $500,000 to a project — seeking permanent residence in the country. Named in the complaint were the law firm’s owner, Jean Danhong Chen; as well as her husband, Tony Jianyun Ye; and personal friend, Kuansheng Chen.

The firm, based in San Jose, focuses on immigration and naturalization law. It claims to have secured more than 10,000 visa and green card approvals across 50 states.

According to the complaint, Chen and Ye routinely advised their clients to invest in an EB-5 regional center that the couple secretly operated.. Another individual, Kai Hao Robinson, posed as the manager.

The couple also allegedly scrubbed any records that would implicate them in the scheme after learning about the SEC investigation, according to the government’s statement.

The complaint, filed in federal district court, seeks permanent injunctions, civil penalties and the appointment of a receiver.

Chen did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The popular EB-5 program allows foreign investors to obtain a green card if they invest at least $500,000 in a project and create at least 10 jobs. It’s been especially popular among Chinese investors — 75 percent of EB-5 visas were awarded to Chinese citizens in 2017.

But the program has come under increased scrutiny in recent years as concerns regarding fraud and abuse have mounted.

Earlier this year, three Chinese investors sued a California family for allegedly stealing more than $1.5 million through an EB-5 scheme. Two owners of a Vermont ski lodge were also charged with misusing more than $200 million of EB-5 investor money.

The government again extended the program through Dec. 7, though it’s unclear what will happen after that.
