Dana Wilkey Sets The Record Straight On Past Federal Fraud Charges; Says “The Matter Was Settled And It Was Found That There Was No Fraud”

Dana Wilkey aka Pam, who appeared as a “friend” in the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, clapped back at Twitter users who accused her of going to jail for her past federal fraud charge.

A Twitter user asked Dana the following: “Did you ever end up going to jail?”

To which, Dana responded, “Thank you for asking the matter was settled and it was found that there was no fraud although everyone loves to mention it and no I didn't go to prison.”

Last month, Wilkey addressed the topic when a fan brought up her past legal issues. When the fan tweeted, “How much time did you end up spending in jail?”

Dana replied back by tweeting, “No I didn’t [go] to jail, the matter was resolved but thanks for being concerned about me and my son,” she replied. “There is a lot of lies, BS and exaggeration when you are a public figure no matter how small and sadly people really enjoy watching and reading negativity.”

In 2014, Wilkey was arrested and surrendered to the F.B.I. due to wire fraud charges. Now, Wilkey has reached a deal in her criminal case. According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Wilkey pled guilty to Count One of Misprision of a Felony.

The former Bravo reality star was arrested along with two associates on June 18, 2014. According to the FBI, she was indicted with “conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and aiding and abetting, and [making] false statements to government agents.”

Wilkey was president of the company Adwil Agency, which is a Blue Shield Vendor. “Between in or about February 2006 through at least February 2012, Dana Wilkey, through Adwil Agency accounts, paid directly to Lissa Phoenix, Skylar Phoenix, and Rodeo Pink, approximately 87 checks totaling approximately $360,000 in illegal and undisclosed kickbacks related to Adwil Agency’s business with Blue Shield,” the release charged.

Law enforcement believes Wilkey should have known the arrangement would be fraudulent if not properly approved.
