Shah is reportedly not being held in prison but her bail conditions have been updated. During her arraignment on Friday, April 2, assistant U.S. Attorney Kiersten Fletcher requested the update which was approved by U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein. As a result, Shah has two weeks to comply and put up a $1 million personal recognizance bond secured by $250,000 in cash or property. She also must hand her passport in to court.

Her initial arraignment was postponed when Shah and her attorney had difficulty joining the virtual hearing after more than 250 people reportedly dialed in.

“Shah and Smith flaunted their lavish lifestyle to the public as a symbol of their ‘success,’” HSI special agent-in-charge Peter C. Fitzhugh described the alleged scam. “In reality, they allegedly built their opulent lifestyle at the expense of vulnerable, often elderly, working-class people. As alleged, disturbingly, Shah and Smith objectified their very real human victims as ‘leads’ to be bought and sold, offering their personal information for sale to other members of their fraud ring.”
