The return of the money confiscated for the benefit of victims of fraud may be possible, but will depend on several factors. Hand, this refund will be proportional to the amount confiscated by the Court and the cooperation of the DoJ in this case. The amount total entered by the DOJ between June 28, 2007 and June 28, 2011 is approximately $ 331 million what to at the outset seems sufficient to repay all blurry players.
