Hushipuppi Early Life
Ray Hushpuppi (born October 11, 1982) was born and raised in Lagos, Logos state, Nigeria.
Hushpuppi attended primary school and secondary in Lagos, Lagos state, Nigeria.
Hushpuppi is a popular Instagram influencer and cryptocurrency miner.
Upon his arrival in the United States on July 3 2020 he was accused of conspiring to launder ‘hundreds of millions of dollars.
The affidavit also accused Abbas and a co-conspirator of conspiring to launder funds intended to be stolen through fraudulent wire transfers from a ‘foreign financial institution’ in which fraudulent wire transfers, totaling approximately US$14.7 million, were sent to bank accounts around the world in February 2019.
Though the affidavit did not name any bank, according to Forbes, the date of the attack and the amount mentioned in the affidavit matched that of the attack on Malta’s Bank of Valletta in February 2019.
In February 2019, $14.7 million was transferred out of the bank through false international transactions to accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, and Hong Kong.
The attack was of such seriousness in Malta that then Prime Minister Joseph Muscat was forced to address parliament. Multiple sources in Malta including Times of Malta and Malta Today also repeated Forbes’s claims that Hushpuppi could have been behind the attack.
According to the affidavit, Abbas had provided a co-conspirator with two bank accounts in Europe anticipating the receipt of $5.6 million each of the
fraudulently obtained funds.
U.S. authorities also accused him of aiding North Korean hackers in money laundering.
According to the affidavit other communications
between Abbas and one of his co-conspirators indicated that the two had conspired to “launder tens and at times hundreds, of millions of dollars that were proceeds of other fraudulent schemes and computer intrusions, including a fraudulent scheme to steal £100 million ($124 million) from an English Premier League football club.
Abbas is also accused of committing fraud in Nigeria as he is also wanted by Nigeria’s financial crime police, the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
A request for his bail and the chance to stay with his
girlfriend’s uncle in Homewood, Illinois, was denied because he presented a risk of non-appearance.
At Abbas’ detention hearing, his lawyer, Pissetzky told the court that his client posed no flight risk because of the damage it would do to his credibility online, adding, “He is loved and respected.
He is a celebrity. He would not want to ruin his credibility and status rather than stay here and face these allegations.”
Prosecutors cited his “significant” financial assets, “deep ties to foreign countries” and a lack of ties to the United States.
If convicted of conspiracy to engage in money laundering, Abbas would face a statutory maximum sentence of 15 years in federal prison, perhaps even 20 years, after which he will be deported to his home
An article in Bloomberg Business week details his actions leading to his arrest, incarceration, and a trial on July 27, 2021, in Los Angeles. “Authorities say, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, perfected a simple internet scam and laundered millions of dollars.
His past says a lot about digital swagger and the kinds of stories that get told online.”
On 28th July 2021, Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to money
laundering and also pointed out a Deputy Commissioner of
Police in Nigeria, Abba Kyari , as an accomplice in his $1.1 million scam deal.
The following day, a US Court granted an FBI warrant to arrest Abba Kyari.
The Police chief was further implicated after his conversation with Hushpuppi was released.
