Ramo Abass, also known as “Hushpuppi,” is a well-known financial crime mastermind and con artist who was detained by Interpol in Dubai.
He was extradited to the United States after his detention and is now facing several fraud and money laundering allegations.
As one of Nigeria’s most well-known socialites and social media sensations, he was widely respected before his detention by Interpol.
Punch reports that American cybercrime expert Gary Warner has uncovered that the paper claiming Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, was an international Internet fraudster who laundered $400,000 in prison was bogus.
Wothappen.com has learned that the document was an altered version of a sworn declaration by Warner, the director of research in Computer Forensics at Alabama.
On his Twitter page, Warner disclosed that the new version of the document “was intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP website.”He wrote:“People are asking me if it is true that #Hushpuppi laundered $400,000 in #Stimulus cards from in prison.“The document they show is an edit of a June 2020 Affidavit. The new version is fake, intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP website.”This came shortly after a purported document, which went viral on Thursday morning, showed that Hushpuppi, who was currently on trial, laundered $400,000 in prison.
