A man who defrauded his clients out of more than $4 million has been sentenced to 7 years in prison.  In a scheme running from 2013 to 2020, Edgardo Zeta Montalban convinced his clients to invest cash in a fake federal grant program that he called “Suppressed IRS Accounts” by claiming to be an accountant and tax preparer.  However, no such program existed, and he did not hold any of those positions.  Montalban was originally recommended to serve 10 years, but due to significant health issues, the 70-year-old’s sentence was reduced.  USAO CDCA
