EB-5 Fraud Whistleblower Lawyer
Are you aware of an EB-5 scam that is taking advantage of foreign investors? Work with an EB-5 fraud whistleblower lawyer to put a stop to it and collect a reward in the process.
While the EB-5 visa program was created to attract foreign investors, it has also created several opportunities for fraudsters to take advantage of wealthy foreign nationals. Even though the targets of this fraud aren’t US citizens, securities fraud is securities fraud, and that means the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will be looking to eliminate it.
If you know of a fraudster utilizing the EB-5 program to defraud foreign investors, the SEC might reward you for becoming a whistleblower. An EB-5 whistleblower lawyer from Meissner Associates can advise you as to how strong your information is and present it to the SEC on your behalf, allowing you to remain anonymous until it’s time to collect your reward.
The Golden Visa Program and Fraud
Sometimes referred to as the “golden visa” program, the EB-5 program encourages foreign nationals to invest in American companies by offering them a green card if they invest enough money. If an investor invests at least $1,000,000 in a business venture, he or she will be granted a temporary visa.
If enough of the program’s requirements are met, this visa can turn into permanent residence. While this is very appealing for people wanting to move to the United States (the majority of these visas go to Chinese investors, for example), it also provides fraudsters and scam artists with an opening.
It’ not uncommon for groups offering EB-5 visas to take advantage of investors’ strong desire to become US citizens. They might emphasize the opportunity to acquire a visa and omit details of how high-risk the venture is.
In the worst scenarios, the offering is completely fraudulent, and the investors discover too late that not only did the fraudster not invest their money as intended—instead pocketing it—but they also never had their EB-5 visa application submitted.
EB-5 Fraud Whistleblowers Can Protect Foreign Investors
If you know of an EB-5 scam that is currently taking place, you can become a whistleblower and help save foreign investors from losing at least $1,000,000. Not only is this the right thing to do, but the SEC might also reward you for your information.
If the SEC collects over $1,000,000 in sanctions from the target of the investigation, you will receive between 10 and 30 percent of the money as your reward. By working with an EB-5 fraud whistleblower lawyer, you can maximize the amount you receive, as we’ll make certain that the SEC understands the full extent of your information and that you don’t miss an opportunity to assist in the investigation.
