Extradition to Us in a $2M Romance Scam; All You Need to Know - Hajia4real’s (Mona4Real)

Hajia4real’s (Mona4Real)

On May 15th, 2023, Mona Faiz Montrage also known as Hajia4real, a 30-year and mother of one was reportedly extradited to the US in a $2m romance scam.

According to reports, Hajia4real appeared in Manhattan federal court Monday for her alleged involvement in a series of romance schemes targeting older people who lived alone.

Hajia4real is alleged to have at least in 2013 through to 2019 been involved with a group of con artists from West Africa who assumed fake identities to trick people into thinking they were in relationships with them using emails, texts and social media messages, the feds said.

Consequently, the victims would be made to transfer money to them under false pretenses — such as to help move gold to the US from overseas, to resolve bogus FBI investigations and payments to help fake US Army officers in Afghanistan, court papers allege.

Montrage (Hajia4real) allegedly duped a victim into sending her $89,000 through 82 wire transfers on the pretext of helping her father’s farm in Ghana, the court documents claim.
