The passports which had his pictures were registered with different names and identification.

He played his game by luring his online victims into sending money into those accounts.

    Deportation is very sure of him after serving his sentencing. US doesn’t joke with that. He is coming back to a lawlessness Nation where he will continue his fraudulent act.

    How did he only get 3 years for stealing so much money? It would be a burden for the U.S. clothe and feed this criminal for a long time. It’s too bad you can’t sentence people like him to hard labor for 10 years, anymore. America is too soft. If he got caught doing this in Russia or China, they would just kill him. That is probably the only solution to deter fraudsters like him.
