The SEC obtained court authorization to freeze the assets of Mr. Lobsang Fargey, a Bellevue, Washington man accused of defrauding Chinese investors seeking U.S. residency through the EB-5 program. The SEC alleged that Dargey and his “Path America” companies raised at least $125 million for two Washington-based real estate projects, but Dargey diverted $14 million for unrelated real estate projects and $3 million for personal use. The court’s order also restrains Dargey from soliciting additional investors and requires him to repatriate funds transferred to overseas bank accounts. SEC
