“my actions have hurt innocent people. I want to apologize to all of the victims and their families,”

per the NY Post. Shah pleaded guilty in July,

“to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud,”

to telemarketers about whom to target, which included elderly victims. Shah had confessed to knowing the services being offered had

“little to no value.” 

“From 2012 to March 2021 in the Southern District of New York and elsewhere I agreed with others to commit wire fraud… I did this by knowingly providing customer names to people who were marketing business services that had little or no value,”

Shah told Stein. 

Shah must surrender on February 17. Judge Sidney Stein says she will be serving her prison time somewhere in the Texas area.
