Red face Transferring $500k from China to U.S.

Hi all,

I have a friend who is looking to transfer $500k from China to the U.S. in order to invest in an EB-5 investment program. China only allows him to transfer $20k USD per day and this would take over a month.

What would be the fastest way to transfer $500k from China to U.S.?

Get a friend who has an account in the US. Your friend can transfer him the funds to his China account. The rest I'm pretty sure you are smart enough to figure out.

His options are limited if he's only willing to put in $500k, but I'm sure he knows that already. There's a lot more flexibility when you increase the stake to $1M -

Required minimum investments are:

General. The minimum qualifying investment in the United States is $1 million.
Targeted Employment Area (High Unemployment or Rural Area). The minimum qualifying investment either within a high-unemployment area or rural area in the United States is $500,000.
A targeted employment area is an area that, at the time of investment, is a rural area or an area experiencing unemployment of at least 150 percent of the national average rate.

A rural area is any area outside a metropolitan statistical area (as designated by the Office of Management and Budget) or outside the boundary of any city or town having a population of 20,000 or more according to the decennial census.

If I send you my social, account numbers, and all my passwords he can probably just deposit the money, if he offers to leave me a bit as a payment for services rendered???

You would think someone with $500k to invest would have access to a lawyer or other agent who can handle something like this. But of course its always a good idea to ask strangers on a BMW forum.

Haha, spot on mate. Problem is that $500K is a small amount when investing in the US, so perhaps he doesn't?

Buy a fancy iphone, take it with you, then remove the diamonds and sell them once you get to your destination.

No Keister mining needed, just make sure you dont lose your phone.
