According to information obtained by Kobbyjosvan.com, Hajia 4 Reall has accepted guilty plea to a romance scam.

Hajia 4Reall is expected to be freed on a $500,000 bond and wear an ankle GPS tracker.
The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Damian Williams, announced on Wednesday, July 21, 2024, that MONA FAIZ MONTRAGE had entered a guilty plea to her involvement in the laundering of the proceeds of several romance scams, according to an official report from the US Attorney’s Office.

“MONTRAGE pled guilty today to conspiracy to receive stolen money before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave,” the report said.

According to Damian Williams, “Mona Faiz Montrage was arrested abroad and is currently facing serious consequences for her actions after she knowingly accepted money stolen from older Americans through romance scams.”

Romance scams such as Montrage’s harmed her vulnerable, elderly victims not only in the cruel betrayal of trust in the realization that their online romantic connection was fiction, but by also callously stealing their money.

“This Office and our law enforcement partners are relentless in bringing fraudsters who target Americans to justice, no matter where they are,” the U.S attorney concluded.

It is reported that Hajia 4 Reall entered a guilty plea to one count of conspiring to receive stolen money, which entails a five-year maximum prison sentence.

The Ghanaian influencer additionally consented to make restitution in the same amount and forfeit $2,164,758.41. Hajia 4 Reall is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Paul A. Crotty.

U.S. prosecutors claim that Hajia 4 Reall was a part of a criminal organisation (the “Enterprise”) based in West Africa that perpetrated a number of frauds against people and companies in the U.S., including romance scams, from at least in or about 2013 through at least in or about 2019.

Numerous elderly, single men and women who were susceptible to romance scams were targeted by the Enterprise. The Enterprise routinely tricked victims into thinking they were in a romantic relationship with someone who had a false identity that members of the Enterprise had taken on by sending them texts, emails, and social media messages.

Several victims of romance scams who were duped into sending money by members of the Enterprise are alleged to have given money to Hajia 4 Reall. Payments to transfer gold from abroad to the United States were one of the many deceptive pretences used to coerce victims into sending money to Hajia 4Reall.

Over $2 million in fraudulent funds from the Enterprise were received by the mother of one controlled bank account.
