Last year’s forfeiture order

According to the forfeiture order, the authorities took over a hundred things from Shah's house in March 2021 while carrying out a search warrant. Authorities also gathered more than 70 fake Chanel, Dior, Fendi, and Hermes purses and jewelry in addition to the Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Versace handbags and totes.

Jennifer was found guilty this year

Jennifer, a franchise member of "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City," was found guilty in July of committing a wire fraud scam. According to the prosecution, Shah and others provided so-called "business services" to the accused victims starting in 2012, including website design services to some elderly persons without computers. They also allegedly sold the identities of people they knew would be cheated by others.

Shah apologized for the fraudulent scam committed

Shah acknowledged that her acts were wrong, that many individuals were affected, and that she was sorry at the time of her guilty plea. Shah was a major participant in a nationwide operation that targeted vulnerable old victims, according to US Attorney Damian Williams at the time, and provided them with fictitious assurances of financial stability.

Williams, in his statement, said Shah and her other members defrauded elderly ones from all their life savings and were left with nothing to survive. 

Shah is to be sentenced next week

Next month, Shah is expected to be jailed. She must forfeit $6.5 million as part of her plea agreement and give the victims up to $9.5 million in reparations.

While Bravo was filming the second season of the reality TV series starring Shah and her castmates debating and disputing her guilt, Shah was arrested in 2021. Shah has always maintained her innocence at the time the episodes aired.
