‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ star Jen Shah pleads guilty in wire fraud case – NBC News.
Jennifer Shah, a cast member on the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” pleaded guilty to defrauding hundreds of victims in a years-long telemarketing scheme. She will pay $6.5 million in the forfeiture and up to $9.5 million in restitution as part of a plea agreement.
Shah was arrested in 2021 while Bravo was filming the second season of the reality TV show and pleaded guilty to fraud. She sought to hide her role in the scam by using encrypted messaging apps, placing companies in the name of family and others, and setting up an offshore bank account.
The fraud included ripping off senior citizens for business services, including search engine optimization. However, most victims didn’t even own a computer and had no business. Jennifer Shah and her co-conspirators would take the victims money and never deliver anything.
She faces up to 14 years in prison for her role in the scam.
