Jen Shah will be the next Housewife to be profiled in a Hulu documentary.
“The Housewife & the Shah Shocker” will focus on Shah’s arrest by the FBI in March and accusations she scammed hundreds of people in a nationwide telemarketing scam that targeted the elderly.
Shah and her assistant Stuart Smith have each been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. They have both pleaded not guilty.
Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said: “Jennifer Shah, who portrays herself as a wealthy and successful businessperson on ‘reality’ television, and Stuart Smith, who is portrayed as Shah’s ‘first assistant,’ allegedly generated and sold ‘lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam. In actual reality and as alleged, the so-called business opportunities pushed on the victims by Shah, Smith, and their co-conspirators were just fraudulent schemes, motivated by greed, to steal victims’ money. Now, these defendants face time in prison for their alleged crimes.”
