    • swaygfx are you saying he kept the money and pretended not to have any? I’m confused because based on the documentary I thought he was just done I dont think he has any money left

    • +swaygfx nah I’m pretty sure he was just spending all the investors money. At the end of the documentary it literally said he had 40 – 60 grand to his name

    • Blessing man ty. I hope you manifest achieve all of your goals and endeavors as well. We can do anything if we believe it to be so. We are creators. Namaste! πŸ™

  1. He’s in jail, owes $2.8 million, publicly shamed and still will have a better life than most!

  2. How to create click bait. Instead of naming the video “Billy McFarland Nailed for $2.8 Million” drop the . and let people wonder if it’s 28 million. TMZ, lowest of the low.

  3. I finally got round to watching the docu on Netflix…. why isnt this man doing serious time in jail… ja rule too and a few of the employers who worked at the top Crazy !

  4. It’s laughable to hear the way I hear people describing him. He’s a lifelong scammer but I hear people saying things like, “oh, he’s a kid who just wanted to be one of the cool guys. ” Saying that they don’t think that Billy knew blah, blah, blah n I’m like okay right after the Fyre festival scam, he was filmed trying to run another scam. I bet if it were someone else, that wouldn’t be the case.
