It seems that the punishments are insufficient to deter others. Also, nothing was said about the deportation; I may be wrong, but it seemed that the names and the activities are those of immigrants.

The crimes outlined here are not just to the theft of government funds; it also includes crimes against other business and citizens trying to earn an honest living.

Punishments like this would tend to encourage more crimes of the same.

How ignornant. Just because they have 'different sounding' names they must be immigrants - unbelievable. Do you actually even know what an immigrant is? Just goes to show how narrow minded people are. With all this other fraud going on half of wall street should be deported according to you, or is it that not the case because their names are more conventional according to you and they have the 'right' skin color also according to the comments in your post.

I realize this is just a BCN news service story, but the reporter didn't even bother to mention the name of the chain of stores??? Shoddy journalism.

I think they got off lucky. I also agree that others would chance this if they could get away with it for as long as these people did considering he judgement. I also feel they should be deported if they are not natural born citizens and if not, Never be able to own or operate a business in the USA.

Kids in our schools are given more community service for misbehaving.
Even if they are legalized citizens they should lose their citizenship for abusing the opportunity given to them by this country!!!
