New details have emerged about the wire fraud allegations against suspected international fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas better known as Hushpuppi. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is accusing the Nigerian socialite of being part of a network that made “hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds and other scams. In June 2020, the 37-year-old known for flaunting his wealthy lifestyle on Instagram, was jointly arrested special operatives of Emerati police and American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Dubai. He was apprehended alongside his partner, Olalekan Ponle ‘Woodberry’, and were extradited to the US to face trial for alleged crime. Amid the ongoing trial, the Department of Justice this week shed more light on one of the scams Hushpuppi is allegedly involved in. They stated that Hushpuppi worked with three North Korean hackers to launder funds stolen from a bank in Malta. According to a statement released by DoJ, Hushpuppi took part in a “North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019.”
