Social Media Celeb Hushpuppi Officially Charged For Fraud In The US And Faces 20 Years In Jail

Nigerian Social Media Celebrity, Ramon Abbas a.k.a. Hushpuppi may be sentenced to 20 years jail term in the United States.





According to the U.S. Government’s Department of Justice website, Hushpuppi as well as his cybercrime team attempted scamming a British Premier League club of $124 million.


US Department of Justice said Hushpuppi will face criminal charges; alleging he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from business email compromise (BEC) frauds and other scams; including schemes targeting a U.S. law firm; a foreign bank and also an unnamed English Premier League soccer club.



“Abbas and others further conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from other fraudulent schemes and computer intrusions; including one scheme to steal £100 million (approximately $124 million) from an English Premier League soccer club, the complaint alleges,” the Department of Justice said in a statement on Friday, July 3.

Abbas, popularly known as Huspuppi was arrested earlier in June along with Olalekan Jacob Ponle, also known as Woodberry and 10 others.

The 12 suspects were arrested in six simultaneous raids carried out by the e-police unit of the Dubai Police.

The gang was responsible for Dh1.6 billion (about N169 billion) fraud involving over 1.9 million victims. Items worth N15.845 billion (Dh 150 million) were also seized.

Their arrest in an operation codenamed Fox Hunt 2 came after about four months of painstaking investigations into their activities., during which their social media activities were monitored by the highly trained police unit.
According to an affidavit filed with the complaint, Hushpuppi maintains social media accounts that frequently showed him in designer clothes; wearing expensive watches; as well as posing in or with luxury cars and charter jets.


“The FBI’s investigation has revealed that Abbas finances this opulent lifestyle through crime; and that he is one of the leaders of a transnational network that facilitates computer intrusions, fraudulent schemes (including BEC schemes), and money laundering, targeting victims around the world in schemes designed to steal hundreds of millions of dollars,” according to the affidavit.

The affidavit describes BEC schemes as often involving a computer hacker gaining unauthorized access to a business’ email account; blocking or redirecting communications to and/or from that email account.

“BEC schemes are one of the most difficult cyber crimes we encounter; as they typically involve a coordinated group of con artists scattered around the world who have experience with computer hacking; and exploiting the international financial system,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna.

If convicted of conspiracy to engage in money laundering, Hushpuppi would face a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.

    8. Pity him na, since you don't know where to direct your pity. One doesn't even need to be a victim of fraud to know how to feel. The almost 2 million people who he defrauded nko? The businesses he must have wrecked nko? Considering trickle-down economics, do have any idea the effect his acts would have on the dependants of his victims?
      This misplaced sentiment is why our country is the way it is.

    2. @abroadian, May you not lose your hard earned money to fraud. Which Kain yeye pity? Do you know how many of his victims might have died or committed suicide cos they lost their money through no fault of their own? If it were before, people would say they were greedy and that's why they got scammed, now what's their excuse?
      So what if he perishes in prison?

  12. The thing I hate about him is how rude & condenscending he is, always rubbishing people.
    Even his baby mama & the woman he used for arrangee papers in the UK is broke, on social welfare support & struggling as a single mother with their son. While he's flexing on social media, living grandiose lifestyle showing off huge wealth in public.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish! The USA is the nemesis for all types of criminals & their associates!
    When America notice u, they must rope u & find way to drag u inside prison there, from any location in the world that u operate from or seem to be hiding.

  17. I don't think he was nabbed cos of show off on IG. Almost every month Nigerians are caught and arraigned for fraud in the USA and most of them don't even have IG. There's a chance he would hve still been caught even without social media.

  18. Nemesis finally caught up with him because his life was an open secret. I wished he was caught by the Chinese Government, they would have given him a better treatment.
