Followers of self-confessed international fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi has been getting early goodwill messages ahead of his 39th birthday on October 11, from some of his social media followers.
The internet celebrity boasts over 2.5 million followers on Instagram alone. He had taken great pride in himself as a social media influencer before the Dubai Police arrested him in June 2020 alongside 12 other members of his gang.
Meanwhile, the Dubai Police said it discovered that fraud amounting to 1.6 billion Dirham (N168bn) had been committed by the gang. No fewer than 1,926,400 people from different parts of the world were also said to have fallen victims to the suspects.
According to the Dubai police, 13 luxury cars, estimated at 35 million Dirham (N3.7bn) were recovered from the house where they were arrested.
The Dubai Police later handed Abbas and his conspirators over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in the United States. Hushpuppi and his gang are facing charges, including conspiracy to commit money laundering, among others.
