The flossy bling is an interesting choice for someone accused of netting $5 million from a massive telemarketing scheme. Prosecutors believe she helped find elderly victims to defraud. They say she put together the lists of "leads" for telemarketing companies. The company would then call the individual and scam them out of money,

In the indictment, Shah and her personal assistant Stuart Smith are accused of making a ton of money off the alleged scam. They are both facing federal charges relating to wire fraud and money laundering.

The reality star's lawyers have also requested a special hearing on an issue with the Detective who interviewed Shah following her arrest. They believe he failed to follow proper procedures during the interrogation process and mislead their client into revealing certain information.

Her lawyer wrote, “At the time she waived her rights, Ms. Shah was in a very vulnerable emotional state due to the combination of strange phone calls she received the morning of her arrest and her history with a convicted felon who had victimized her in New York."

He says the Detective tricked her into talking and failed to allow Shah to read her rights. She accuses the officer of using “deception and trickery."

As a result, she wants all statements she made to police following her being taken into custody suppressed and for them to not be allowed as evidence in her trial.
