No Record Hushpuppi Committed Fraud In prison –US court


The US Attorney’s Office at the Central District of California on Thursday described as false, reports, that alleged international fraudster, Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi, committed over $400,000 fraud while in an American prison.

The court’s Director of Media Relations, Thom Mrozek, made this known on Thursday.

According to him, the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not file any such allegation against Hushpuppi.

The court official also said the FBI Special Agent, Andrew Innocenti, who was said to have filed the fresh charges against Hushpuppi said he didn’t author such a document.

“After looking at the document excerpted in recent media accounts, the document appears to have been fabricated.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, which filed the case against Mr. Abbas, has not filed any such document.

“We have checked with the FBI agent who supposedly authored the document, and he confirms it is a fake,” Mrozek said.

The Dubai Police in the United Arab Emirates had in June 2020 arrested Hushpuppi and his gang. They were later extradited to the US for prosecution by the FBI.

The court also said Hushpuppi would be sentenced on July 11, 2022.
