I think that this sentence was well deserved and it could have been a bit longer in my opinion. It looks like he had no intention of ever giving the money back to his so called friends and he should be punished

I remember this case. I think we can say he got out easily with only 18 months in jail. Lets hope he learned something out of it. Although with a sentence like that, it wouldnt be s surprise if he did another scheme like that when he gets out Will he have the money to repay them?

She got away very well. 18 months is little for the amount of money he has embezzled. For fraud i was expecting to receive 4-5 years of imprisonment but this Ali Fazeli had a good lawyer. Few millions dollars it means something and now he must pay the victims 7,5 millions. He managed to do a bad thing and now he will pay.
