Two months after a judge said the case wasn’t specific enough, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has amended a complaint against immigration lawyer Seyed Taher Kameli. The suit alleges the Chicago attorney misused millions of dollars from EB-5 visa investors, mostly from China and Iran. The suit says the commingling of funds endangered not only the investors’ chance of a Green Card but the financial well being of the projects.
The suit maintains Kameli collected $88.7 millions from at least 226 immigrant investors from 2009 to 2016. Most these people were his legal clients as well.
