Recent reports claiming internet celebrity, Ramon Abbas, better known as Hushpuppi, laundered over $400,000 while inside a U.S. jail are fake, an American cybercrime expert has revealed.
Gary Warner, the Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama, took to Twitter to dismiss the viral allegations and documents.
Warner said the document shared to back the report is a doctored version of a June 2020 affidavit. He added that the edited document was intended to get people to visit a scammer website.
“People are asking me if it is true that #Hushpuppi laundered $400,000 in #Stimulus cards from in prison. The document they show is an edit of a June 2020 Affidavit. The new version is fake, intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP website.” He tweeted.
In other news, Koko, the daughter of Nigerian senator, Florence Ita Giwa, has taken to social media to say she is tired of being a Nigerian.
Sharing a screenshot of her google search of how to become a Senegalese citizen, the entrepreneur told God that she is not demanding for too much and she is fine with being a citizen of Senegal, rather than being a Nigerian.
She wrote, “God…you know I am not picky. Please do it for me. Even if na Senegal. Please Lord. I can’t do Nigeria anymore.”
