Hushpuppi’s lawyer claims he is not guilty of fraud
Despite new evidence submitted against embattled Nigerian socialite, Hushpuppi in California, his Lawyer Gal Pissetzky has disclosed that his client is not guilty of fraud allegations levelled against him.
Pissetzky who disclosed this in an interview with Forbes, stated that Hushpuppi is a business man who operates legal and registered businesses.
In his words,
“Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi is absolutely not guilty of all the charges they are accusing him of. Abass was running a very legitimate business and had a very legitimate Instagram account and did not take part in any scam or fraud. He is an entrepreneur, he has real estate business and was promoting brands, that’s how he was very legitimately making his money.”
Recall that, the new evidence that was submitted against the embattled Big Boy, who was apprehended months ago in Dubai and extradited to the United States for allegedly being part of a network that swindled “hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds and other scams, shows that he used his personal email to register on a website “whizzlog” which is a market place for buying US bank logs and money laundering.
It was also alleged that his email address contained registration confirmation from Whizzlog and numerous confirmation and receipts of bank logs he purchased.
