Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation Paralegal Sentenced to Federal Prison for Wire Fraud!


cybersecdn- Nnenna Mary Jones, a former paralegal at the Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation (TMWF), has been sentenced to 14 months in federal prison for wire fraud, amounting to approximately $17,000.

Jones, who represented clients in immigration matters, was found guilty of instructing clients to leave the “pay to” line blank on checks intended for immigration fees. She then photocopied these checks to create the illusion of payment to the Department of Homeland Security, subsequently cashing them for personal gain.

This fraudulent activity resulted in significant financial loss for at least nine TMWF clients. The case, investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, underscores the vulnerability of immigrants seeking legal assistance and the trust placed in legal representatives.

TMWF, a Plano-based nonprofit, serves Muslim women and their families, providing support in various areas, including immigration. The organization’s reputation and trust within the community have been impacted by this incident. Jones’ accreditation and the foundation’s recognition have come under scrutiny following her arrest.
