Hajia4Real in serious trouble

United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Mr. Damian Williams, has announced that Ghanaian influencer Mona Faiz Montrage, known as Hajia4Real, is in serious trouble following her guilty plea in a romance scam case.

Hajia4Real admitted to her involvement in laundering money from a series of romance scams, appearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave.

Last May, allegations surfaced that Hajia4Real was part of a criminal group that targeted elderly and vulnerable Americans through romance scams dating back to 2013.

During a recent court hearing, U.S. Attorney Damian Williams emphasized the severity of her actions, stating that Mona Faiz Montrage knowingly accepted funds stolen from older Americans through these scams. She was apprehended overseas and now faces significant repercussions.

Williams highlighted the damaging impact of romance scams like the one involving Montrage, noting the emotional toll on victims who experienced a cruel betrayal of trust upon realizing their online romantic connections were fabricated, coupled with the financial loss suffered.

The U.S. Attorney’s office, along with law enforcement partners, remains dedicated to pursuing justice against fraudsters who target Americans, regardless of their location.

Hajia4Real pleaded guilty to conspiring to receive stolen funds, a charge that carries a maximum five-year prison sentence.

As part of her plea agreement, she has agreed to forfeit $2,164,758.41 and make full restitution in the same amount. Her sentencing is scheduled to be conducted by U.S. District Judge Paul A. Crotty.
