Hushpuppi-Woodberry

Alleged internet fraudster Raymond Igbalode Abbas, otherwise known as “Hushpuppi” has finally been extradited from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) facility to the United States.

This was revealed in a statement by the Dubai Police on Thursday in which the US Federal Bureau of Investigations extended its gratitude to the UAE crime watchdog for its role in apprehending and extraditing ‘Hushpuppi’.

He was hauled in a fortnight  ago by a special squad of Dubai Police alongside Olalekan Jacob Ponle, known as “Woodberry,” and 10 other of his ring, after a hi-tech operation codenamed Fox Hunt, for high-level cyber crime, in which close to two million victims were said to be victims.

Specifically, the Dubai authorities are accusing them of “committing crimes outside the UAE, including money-laundering, cyber fraud, hacking, criminal impersonating, scamming individuals, banking fraud and identity theft,” the Dubai Police said.

Dubai CID, Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, had said that the Instagram sensation with millions of followers, who was arrested while sleeping in his room, had incriminating documents of a planned fraud on a global scale worth AED 1.6 billion ($ 435 million).

“The team also seized more than AED 150 million ($40.9 million) in cash, 13 luxury cars with an estimated value of AED 25 million ($6.8 million) obtained from fraud crimes, and confiscated 21 computer devices, 47 smartphones, 15 memory sticks, five hard disks containing 119,580 fraud files as well as addresses of 1,926,400 victims”, he said.

After conducting further investigations and analysing confiscated electronic devices, Dubai Police investigators uncovered sensitive information mined by the suspects on individuals and companies overseas including bank accounts and fake credit cards as well as documents and files condemning the gangs’ illegal activities, the Dubai Police said.
