[Q] Can designated escrows used by Regional Centers be trusted?
Yes, most escrows are pretty well-known banks, and I have never heard so far any problems with the escrow banks used by Regional Centers. However, if the escrowing company is a very small bank or non-financial company, I would be concerned, if I were an EB-5 investor who was told to deposit my funds in some unheard of bank at some Caribbean island. Like I said, most RCs I know use well-known, bona-fide banks to act as escrows.
