Notorious Nigerian Fraudster Faces 20 Years In Prison.


A notorious fraudster and social media celebrity, popularly known as Hushpuppi  appears before a US 🇺🇸 court to face  several criminal charges.
It is understood that the fraudster faces criminal charges bordering on conspiracy to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from Business Email Compromise (BEC) frauds and other internet scams.

Among his crimes are schemes that allegedly saw him and his ring members target a law firm in the United States, a foreign financial institution, and an English Premier League club.

The FBI revealed that Hushpuppi and his cronies uses compromised email accounts or a separate fraudulent ones to communicate with personnels from a victim company, tricking them into making an unauthorised wire transfer.
In a scam involving a New York-based law firm, Hushpuppi and his crew were alleged to have undertaken a scheme that defrauded a client out of approximately $922,857 in October 2019.

He was also said to have conspired to launder funds stolen in a $14.7 million cyber-heist from a foreign financial institution (name withheld) in February 2019, sending the loot to different bank accounts around the world.

The FBI affidavit also alleged that Hushpuppi conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from other intrusions, including one scheme to steal £124 million from an English Premier League club.

While Hushpuppi is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, the embattled fraudster is expected to face a statutory maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted.
