A former Billings man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for fraudulent business dealings that bilked thousands of dollars form two victims.

Marty Allen Moore was sentenced Friday by Senior U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy in Missoula for wire fraud and mail fraud. Molloy also ordered Moore to pay $89,201 in restitution.

Moore, 47, previously admitted to the charges for two separate business schemes. In one scheme, Moore posed as the owner of a safari and outfitting company to bilk money from a Montana investor, who lost nearly $60,000.

In the second scheme, Moore posed as a real estate agent and convinced a South Dakota restaurant owner that he had a buyer for the business but needed money for fees. The restaurant owner lost about $12,000.

The crime happened between 2008 and 2010. In December 2010, Moore received a 10-year suspended prison sentence in Yellowstone County for posing as an attorney or paralegal to collect $60,000 in fraudulent legal fees.
