Instagram Star’s Double Life: From Luxury to Cybercrime | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

A West African cybercrime organization has accused Mona Faiz Montrage, a renowned Instagrammer with 4.2 million followers, of participating. A federal indictment unsealed on Monday alleges her involvement in a series of scams targeting older and vulnerable Americans that cost over $2 million. Federal officials said Montrage was extradited to New York on Friday from the UK after his November arrest.

The Southern District of New York US Attorney’s Office accused Montrage of conspiracy to conduct wire fraud, money laundering, and receiving stolen money. She denied these claims Monday. Adam Cortez, her attorney, confirmed her plea and said he is awaiting official specifics on the claims.

Montrage became famous on social media by portraying herself as a singer and successful entrepreneur who traveled between Accra, Ghana, and London. The current accusation says that a cybercrime organization helped her succeed.

Montage was involved in a romantic fraud that targeted senior Americans. Online love connections were used to trick victims into paying large sums of money. The indictment alleges these schemes were part of a bigger West African cybercrime enterprise.

Montrage’s arrest and extradition demonstrate cybercrime’s global scope and law enforcement’s attempts to tackle it. Her charges serve as a warning that social media users may not be who they seem, and vigilance is needed when participating in online relationships or financial transactions.
