RHOSLC's Jen Shah is charging fans $99 each for Cameo video messages after her arrest for 'telemarketing fraud scheme'

RHOSLC's Jen Shah has been charging fans $99 each for Cameo video messages after her arrest for a "telemarketing fraud scheme."

Jennifer, 47, has set up her Cameo profile where fans can make their request for a video. 


While holding a fancy microphone, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star announced she would be giving shout-outs to her "Shah squad."

In her Cameo vid, Jen teased she could wish someone to have a "Shah-mazing day!" 

Fans could also receive a direct message from the reality star at $2.99.

As of now, Jen has received one review that stated: "Thank you!"

Recently, Jen and her assistant, Stuart Smith, 43, were arrested in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Each has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

In the press release, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss stated: "Jennifer Shah, who portrays herself as a wealthy and successful business person 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."

In the indictment obtained by The Sun, the participants were involved in a "Business Opportunity Scheme" where they "sold alleged services" to assist in making the alleged victim's companies more efficient or profitable.

According to court papers, this included "tax preparations or website design services."

The defrauded victims, many of whom were over the age of 55, were "elderly and did not own a computer."

In the scheme, which ran from 2012 to March 2021, participants provided information on "coaching sessions," though the court documents claimed that "at no point did the defendants intend that the victims would actually earn any of the promised return on their intended investment."

Jen and her co-conspirator made efforts to hide their roles, such as using encrypted messaging apps, in the scheme. 

If convicted, Jen could be facing the maximum sentence of up to 20 years.

Jen will reportedly continue being filmed for the second season of the Bravo show. 

An insider mentioned the show has already shot "the lead-up to and aftermath of Jen's arrest as well as her costars’ reactions."

“Bravo knows full well that viewers are following every detail of this case and will continue to do so as it progresses, so producers plan to follow it just as closely and use whatever footage they legally can."

An eyewitness told The Sun that the cameras were rolling when Jen was arrested while getting ready for a cast trip.

The source admitted: “Cameras were rolling but it was so chaotic, I’m not sure exactly what was captured."

Jen is married to Sharrieff Shah, 49, and have two children: Sharrieff Jr., 27, and Omar.
