Nigerian Dubai-based big boy – Ray Hushpuppi has been handed over to the US authorities. His cars, properties among other things have been seized by authorities.
Ray Hushpuppi according to reports filed by Kemi Olunloyo has been handed over to the US authorities for them to solely investigate his alleged $35M scam.
Kemi Olunloyo who was the first to break the news on Hushpuppi’s arrest wrote on Twitter:
“#BREAKING UPDATE @mrwoodbery and @hushpuppi implicated by the @secretservice in a Nigerian Unemployment Insurance scam named #ScatteredCanary.
For those who don’t know what this is, this is money the US government gives us monthly when we lose our jobs while we are looking for another. Somehow the Nigerian ring cracked into the system and filed 174+ fraudulent claims. People’s #COVID19 stimulus payments gone.
It is too elaborate. Only thing I can say is everyday for the thieves, one day for the owner. It is a dark day in Nigeria. HushPuppi and Woodberry and others are on their way to America. I was also told that their properties have been sealed with warrants”.
A further report revealed that Interpol in collaboration with Dubai Police is still going about picking boys because the scam is a huge one.
Many of Hushpuppi’s friends and associate are still blocking him on IG and deactivating their accounts to cover their own trail, over 20 blocked him today.
To save face, the EFCC has now vowed to heat up their own war on internet fraudsters down here in Nigeria.
