Court Reduces Crypto Fraud King Sentence by 75%

Faruk Fatih Özer was convicted in the collapse of the Thodex Crypto exchange in 2021, and much to the chagrin of prosecutors, he was given barely 25% of the requested prison time for his part in the fraud, money laundering, and operating a criminal organization.

His sentence, a mere 11,196 years in prison in Turkey. Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of 40,000 years.

Thodex users lost over $2 billion when the exchange suddenly refused to allow withdrawals, eventually dissolving in a miasma of charges and accusations.


Be interesting to see who gets out sooner.

There are risks involved. I am not an investor.

Everything in life involves risks. :scream:

I wont park my car in your garage.

The cars were perfectly safe. That is until we totaled one on the NYS Thruway.

However, I am worried about people standing next to me getting collateral damage from lightning strikes!
