Hajia4Reall to be sentenced today, June 28

Ghanaian musician and socialite, Hajia4Real born Mona Faiz Montrage will face sentencing today June 28, 2024.

The socialite’s legal team had earlier pleaded with the court for a three-month sentence because she is a single mother whose presence in the life of her child is very imperative.

But the US Attorney’s Office has countered strongly, citing similar cases to argue for the full 37-month term.

To the US Attorney’s Office, a reduced sentence will not be fair and will not serve as a proper deterrent to people.

Ghanaian socialite, Hajia4Real named the father of her daughter as the man who introduced her to internet fraud.

According to her, she met Allison in 2015 and fell in love with him in the United States of America without having any knowledge of his fraudulent activities.

She later discovered he was into fraud, something he introduced her to and got her involved in.

Lawyers for Hajia4Real pleaded for a short sentence, indicating that she is a single mother and that her absence could be detrimental to her daughter.

Hajia4Reall has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, one count of money laundering conspiracy, and one count of money laundering. Additionally, she faces one count of receipt of stolen money, which carries a potential 10-year prison sentence, and conspiracy to receive stolen cash, carrying a five-year jail term.

She pleaded to guilty to the charges against her in February 2024.

Reports suggest that Hajia4Reall was involved in a $2 million romance scam. She allegedly communicated with one of her victims multiple times and received wire transfers totalling $89,000, purportedly to fund an unexisting business, ‘The Enterprise’. Her arrest in the United Kingdom led to her extradition to the United States to face these charges.

The US Attorney’s Office has vehemently opposed a reduced sentence, arguing that it would be unfair and fail to serve as an effective deterrent. They have cited similar cases supporting their position for the 37-month term.
