A civil complaint was brought against Alexandre by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) which focused on the losses suffered by the nearly 100,000 clients who had fallen for his fraud . According to the CFTC in addition to the 9 year prison sentence Alexandre was sentenced to 3 years of probation .
