Irvine, Orange County - A little known U.S. government program called the EB-5 Visa has taken off in recent years with investors from China. It's a program that allows foreign investors a method of obtaining a Green Card who invest $1,000,000 and create, or preserve, at least ten jobs for U.S. workers for about two years.
In Los Angeles and Orange County the EB-5 program has been a boom for building investment from China in constructing new hotels and other businesses.
The EB-5 Visa program has taken off recently due to demand from wealthy Chinese, and with that rapid demand have come delays, weak oversight and, what most people in China and Chinese immigrants here in Orange County are becoming victims of, increasing amounts of fraud that have left many Chinese immigrants in Los Angeles and Orange County, and back home in China, with no Visa and a large loss of money.
Attorney Michael L. Guisti has seen and dealt first hand with many EB-5 scam victims from China who are in Orange County, the San Gabriel Valley and all around Los Angeles. Many of Mr. Guisti's clients have invested over a million dollars or more in what were suppose to be various investment projects in Southern California. Yet Mr. Guist's clients soon learned that the person and company who his clients gave their money to was no longer returning any telephone calls, and were suddenly hard to find. Worst yet, there was no Green Card and their money was nowhere to be found!
If you're a Chinese immigrant and this sounds familiar to you, then sadly it sounds like you've been a victim of an EB-5 Visa scam, and whether you're in Irvine, Westminster, Garden Grove, Newport Beach, or anywhere in Orange County or Southern California, it's very important to contact The Law Offices of Michael L.
