Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Now Urges Chinese EB-5 Visa Investors to Use Their Due Diligence Service to Avoid Getting Fleeced by a Regional Center or a Law Firm
WASHINGTON, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog says, “We are increasingly becoming concerned that EB-5 Visa applicants/investors from China or any other country in the world are being duped by regional centers that are in fact one in the same as the developer or promoter of the investment. This calls into question-why pay a broker a $50,000 broker fee when the regional center and investment are one in the same? It also calls into question where are the attorneys who should be protecting their client?
“If you are a EB-5 Visa applicant/investor please call us anytime at 800-714-6466 so at a minimum we can try to learn more about what a regional center is offering you. The last thing we want to see happen to a person wishing to gain a EB-5 Visa is to get grossly overcharged by a regional center, a law firm-or both. More importantly we do not want to see a EB-5 applicant lose their entire investment of $500,000-$1,000,000 or more when add in ‘broker/regional center’ and legal fees.” http://
As an example of what the Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is talking about, according to the Los Angeles Times onMay 20, 2017, “After giving his money to the California Investment Immigrant Fund in 2011, the Chinese businessman took annual trips to Los Angeles. Each time, he said, a representative would take him on a tour of various vacant sites around Rancho Cucamonga and assure him the developments were on track. But the projects were never built.” www.latimes.com/local/
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is warning EB-5 Visa applicants to be extremely cautious about multi- family rental properties as investments in the United States. The group just spent a week in Southern California and the new apartment/multi-family rental market is completely overbuilt as are numerous other major population centers throughout the United States.
The group fears that EB-5 Visa investors who invest in residential apartment properties in prestigious US metro areas such as New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Houston, Dal

The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is concerned US based law firms with offices in China, Central America, the Middle East or in Europe could be more interested in legal fee generation for the law firm-than a high quality outcome for a EB-5 Visa applicant. At the same time, they are not confident all EB-5 Visa Regional Centers have a make sense investment product for the EB-5 Visa applicant/investor. They are also extremely concerned the regional center and the investment are one in the same.
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog’s initiative is all about protecting the EB-5 Visa program applicant/investor and their money with their affordable due diligence services.

Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Now Offers A EB-5 Visa Investor an Unsurpassed Service Designed to Ensure They Do Not Get Cheated on Their Investment or Gouged with Legal or Broker Fees
WASHINGTON, May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog says, “We have designed an unsurpassed due diligence service for a EB-5 Visa investor/applicant that will ensure the property or business opportunity they are being offered is real and not a fantasy. As part of this service we will also suggest lawyers who are ethical, skilled and affordable. Additionally, we will attempt to negotiate a reduced finder fee/broker fee from the regional center. Frequently the regional center and the broker are one in the same and their broker/finder fee is $50,000. Why pay a finder/broker fee to the same entity that is the developer or owner the investment?
“If you are a potential EB-5 Visa applicant/investor please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 before you give a regional center any money. Why waste your money on an investment opportunity that may never make money or that will cause you to lose your entire investment?”http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog’s Due Diligence Service For a EB-5 Visa Applicant/Investor includes the following:
- “Suggesting some of the most skilled and experienced EB-5 Visa attorneys in the United States that are affordable and who have a very successful track record in obtaining an EB-5 Visa for their client. We do not want a EB-5 Visa Applicant to overpay on legal fees.
- “Our due diligence service and inspection report will detail the potential upside for the property along with the current real estate market conditions where the property is located. This will include us traveling anywhere in the United States to personally inspect the property/investment opportunity to confirm it lives up to the representations made in the prospectus and or offering by the Regional Center. If we see a problem with the property or business opportunity we will highlight this in our report. Problems could include vacancy issues, market over saturation of similar type properties, or issues related to the location or condition of a business opportunity.
- “Upon seeing the property or business opportunity we will contact our EB-5 Visa applicant client and if possible suggest a reduction in the broker/finder fees.”
Special Note: Please do not trust a EB-5 Regional Center with the promotion of investment opportunities especially if the Regional Center is exclusively focused on investors from China, Russia, South or Central America. The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog does not work for Regional Centers or a law firm. They only work with specific EB-5 Visa Applicants/investors to ensure their money is being wisely invested and not wasted.
The cost for this service is $7500 US. The Center’s goal is that their fees are offset by cost savings received by the EB-5 Visa applicant/investor.

Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Now Offers EB-5 Visa Applicants an Affordable Due Diligence Service to Ensure Their Investment Makes Sense – Don’t Get Bilked by A Regional Center
WASHINGTON, April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is now offering an unsurpassed due diligence service for EB-5 Visa applicants that is designed to ensure the investment is not a get rich quick scheme on the part of a regional center.

For more information, EB-5 applicants are encouraged to contact the Wall Street Fraud Watchdog at 866-714-6466.http://
According to the Wall Street Fraud Watchdog, “It is very possible a regional center promoting an investment opportunity to a EB-5 Visa investment to a person from China, India, Korea, Eastern Europe, the Middle East or South/Central America will not be completely honest with the investor. In many instances, it is likely the regional center will embellish to make it sound like their investment is too good to be true, or it will produce a significant return on investment. Furthermore-why pay a $50,000 ‘finders-fee’ or ‘broker fee’ when the investment and broker are all one in the same?
“If a EB-5 Visa applicant or applicants care about the quality of the investment they are being offered please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let’s talk about the goal and or expectation for the investment. We do not work for a regional center nor are we captive to a law firm. Our due diligence service is designed to protect EB-5 Visa applicants and their money.” http://

Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Urges EB-5 Visa Investors in China to Use Their Due Diligence Service to Ensure the Regional Center They Are Using Is Offering a Legitimate Investment
WASHINGTON, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog says, “We are urging EB-5 investors to include us in their investment decision if they are dealing with a regional center, or a regional center’s representatives-especially in China. Why spend $50,000+ US dollars for a regional center’s finder fee-when it is their investment property they are trying to sell?
“As an example, we have heard about Chinese EB-5 Visa applicants who care more about getting their US Visa than ever seeing a return on their investment. As we would like to discuss anytime at 866-714-6466 we think EB-5 investors should get their Visa and receive a fair rate of return on their investment.”http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog wants to emphasize they are extremely concerned Chinese or European EB-5 Visa applicants will be over impressed with ‘location, location, location’ when it comes to US residential apartment markets. They are especially referring to the overbuilt luxury apartment markets in Southern California, Seattle,Portland,
Recent EB-5 News:
According to a report on CNBC on March 8, 2017, “The visa program has come under criticism in the recent years as there have been multiple cases of scam and misuse. A special report by Reuters in 2010 identified many real estate firms misleading foreign investors by ‘selling the American Dream’ and looking for a quick way to receive investments to fund real estate projects.
“More recently, a Chicago hotel developer was sentenced earlier last month in the largest EB-5 visa fraud scheme of$912 million for misleading 290 Chinese investors, according to Associated Press.” For attribution please refer to the CNBC news story: http://www.cnbc.com/

The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is very worried international law firms with offices in China, Central America, the Middle East or in Europe could be more interested in legal fee generation for the law firm-than a high quality outcome for a EB-5 Visa applicant.

Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Helps Prevent EB-5 Visa Investors From Throwing Their Money Away with Investment Specific Due Diligence and Assistance Finding the Most Skilled Lawyers
/PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog urges persons in China, Eastern Europe, the Middle East or South/Central America who would like to take advantage of the US government’s EB-5 Visa program to call 866-714-6466 before they start throwing money at attorneys and or ‘Regional Center’ investment opportunities.
WASHINGTON, March 9, 2017 Their biggest concern is a person or family like this will overpay for legal services or worse throw their money away on an investment that is over-priced, poorly planned, or it is little more than a scheme to steal the investor’s money.
The Watchdog’s fees are extremely reasonable and their due diligence service is market/area and investment specific with a huge emphasis on honesty. Additionally, as part of their service they will do their best to ensure a EB-5 Visa applicant/investor is dealing directly with some of the most skilled and experienced lawyers EB-5 attorneys in the US-who do not overcharge their clients. http://
Recently, the Watchdog spoke with a South American business person who was on the verge of spending $40K US on a US based law firm-just for his initial application along with what would have been a significant investment in an apartment REIT in Southern California-plus additional back end legal fees that would have been another$40K. The group told the potential EB-5 Visa applicant very bluntly that in their opinion the law firm’s fee were excessive.
Adding insult to potential injury the new apartment building in Southern California that had been promoted by a regional center had virtually no tenants-after being available for occupancy for three months. The apartment markets in much of Southern California are overbuilt, and the last thing the Wall Street Fraud Watchdog wants to see happen is a EB-5 Visa applicant/investor wasting their money on an investment that will not produce a return for a very long time-or ever.
One of the Wall Street Fraud Watchdog‘s big worries about the USCIS EB-5 Visa program is that international law firms in China, Central America, the Middle East or in Europe could be more interested in fee generation for the firm than a high quality outcome for the EB-5 Visa applicant. At the same time-they are not confident an international law firm would be very accurate when it comes to solid investment advice related to a satisfactory investment for the applicant, or a regional center that has a make sense investment for the applicant.

Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Now Urges Congress to Amend the IRS Tax Rules That Prevent an Investor from Getting a Full Deduction After a Stock Loss – As Opposed to Just $3000 Per Year
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is urging the US Congress to amend ridiculous IRS tax codes that prevent an investor from writing off a major stock loss in the same tax year the loss occurred. As it stands right now the most the investor can write off is $3000 per year. If the stock loss was $30,000 the investor would have to wait ten years to fully write off the loss. However, if the investor has a significant short term gain in the stock market the IRS will expect the investor to pay the full tax in the same tax year the short-term gain occurred.
It would seem like every time Republican members of Congress are up for re-election they suggest they want lower taxes, or a simplification of tax codes-and it never happens. The ridiculous IRS maximum $3000 short term tax loss rule would a great place to start. http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog says, “Current House Speaker Ryan talks about lowering taxes and or tax simplification all of the time as do many of his Republican colleagues. Tax law should be simple, and filing out an IRS tax return should not require a rocket scientist from MIT to fill out the form or forms. The $64,000 question for us is at what point does the Republican held Congress deliver on their promises?
“We are advocates for investors in the stock market and we are urging House Speaker Ryan and his colleagues to get in place a modification of the current IRS rule that forces a small investor to only write off $3000 of a stock loss each year. Tax laws should be fair. To repeat-how is it fair that if an investor has a significant short term capital gain the IRS is on the spot looking for their money-down to the last cent? However, if a small investor gets a haircut with a significant stock loss he or she gets stuck with the IRS’s $3000 maximum deduction each year.http://
Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Now Offers Investors Considering Participation in an EB-5 Visa Investment to Please Call Them Before They Invest a Dime – Unsurpassed Due Diligence Services
WASHINGTON, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog says, “We are urging investors on the verge of investing in a business or pooling money via Regional Center with the goal of qualifying of the US EB-5 Visa Program to call us first anytime at 866-714-6466 before they invest a dime.”
“We are especially focused on assisting investors from China, Russia, or South/Central America. The last thing we want to see happen to an investor wishing to qualify for the EB-5 Visa program is for them to lose their money, or to invest in something like a business that would be a difficult proposition for a US investor to take over-let alone someone not from the US.” http://
The Center believes the EB-5 Visa program can be a win for an investor wishing to obtain a US Visa-but they think the investor needs an unbiased second opinion to ensure they are not about to get a US Visa-but in the process-lose all or a good portion of their investment.
“There is another issue that must be addressed and that is US developers paying off Chinese, Russian or South/Central American middlemen to steer EB-5 Visa investors to a specific Regional Center and a specific project. While it may be illegal in the US for a business person to bribe, or pay-off a foreign official-hardly anyone in the US ever gets charged with such a crime. Before you invest in a business or a regional center’s business/investment opportunities please call us at 866-714-6466 and allow us to make certain you are not about to through your money away.” http://
What is a Regional Center when it comes to the EB-5 Visa program? Regional Centers typically pool multiple investments into their projects, which allows EB-5 investors to invest in larger scale and potentially more financially stable businesses or projects.

Wall Street Fraud Watchdog Urges Investors Who Have Suffered Huge Losses in Oil Stocks to Call Them About Possible Recovery of Their Money – The Practice Is Called Concentration
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is urging high net worth individuals who have suffered substantial losses because their stock broker or investment advisor parked most of their portfolio in oil stocks in 2015 to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 for a possible strategy to recover their money. The practice of putting all of a person’s stock portfolio is called ‘concentration’ and it is like putting all of your investment eggs in one basket.
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog says, “A year ago we drove from Fort Worth, Texas to Odessa, Texas.” We discovered almost every freeway exit had new motels, or fast food chain restaurants under construction because of the oil boom and fracking. The distance between Fort Worth andOdessa is over 300 miles. We had just seen the same in Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
“Stock brokers or investment advisors talked many high net worth individuals into the notion that the US oil boom would never end and sold their clients a bill of goods in our opinion. As a result of this poor advice many high net worth US Investor put much of their investment portfolio into oil stocks, and much of their principal has now been flushed down the tube.”
If you are a high net worth individual and you have suffered huge losses because your investment advisor or stock broker sold you a bill of goods with supposedly super safe oil stocks in 2015 please call us at 866-714-6466 and we will suggest lawyers who might be able to assist you in getting your money back.” http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog believes investing in oil stocks in 2015 was a very, very risky investment not only because of the abundance of US oil reserves that seemingly were increasing with each passing month, but perhaps more importantly because the Obama Administration was going to give away the farm on the Iranian nuclear weapon negotiations. The Obama Administration’s Iranian free pass gave the Saudi’s no other good options except to pump oil to lower global oil prices. By decreasing global oil prices the Saudi’s devastated Iran’s economy, and the economy of Iran’s main sponsor Russia. Frackers in Texas, Ohio, Wyoming, and North Dakota are now laying off workers, and US oil stocks have tanked. “Did anyone on Wall Street see this coming, or were the brokers and investment advisors making too much money to pay attention?” http://money.cnn.
The Watchdog says, “If an investor suffered losses in excess of $100,000 in 2015, or in 2016 because their investment portfolio had a concentration in oil stocks we are urging them to call us at 866-714-6466, if their investment advisor or stock broker did nothing to protect them. Concentrations in oil stocks in 2015 was never a good bet and a stock broker, or investment advisor should have been more proactive when it came to protecting their clients.”http://

March 25, 2014
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is urging stock investors to be extremely cautious with Internet penny stock promotions, because they are convinced these types of marketing gimmicks are designed to pump up a stock’s value, before investors who bought at a much lower price can jump ship – leaving the new investors holding the bag. This scheme is also called pump, and dump. http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is urging stock market investors to not get lured into a pump, and dump stock Internet promotional scam that has been designed to lure new investors in without much actual upside for the promoted stock.
The group says, “We have been working on this project for about a year, and we think pump, and dump stock market schemes are becoming much more widespread. Do some investors win sometimes – yes. However, we think it is just as easy to lose, so we are suggesting investors do a little homework before they jump in and buy into an Internet promotional scheme designed to spotlight a stock with suggestions of huge returns, or get in before it’s too late.”http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is suggesting investors looking at buying an Internet-promoted stock that they received an alert about to write down to ticker symbol, and go to CNBC’s website, and check the chart of the stock associated with their symbol. CNBC has a super-informative feature on a listed stock’s page where it says “View Advanced Charts.” This chart will typically show an investor if a penny stock has just had a dramatic run up, prior to the promotional e-mail that says buy this stock before it’s too late. A dramatic run up may signal the stock is already pumped, and the promoters are getting ready to dump. http://
The Wall Street Fraud Watchdog is also suggesting investors who might be interested in penny stocks to check out a website called Seeking Alpha. Seeking Alpha offers very solid research on many stocks, with good-to-great analysis. Are they always right? The answer is no. However, the Watchdog believes they are an extremely honest resource for investors. http://
