Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

American cybercrime expert, Gary Warner, says reports that convicted internet fraudster Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi laundered $400,000 in prison were fake.

The reports had claimed that US prosecutors presented documents before the United States District Court of California on March 16, 2022, showing fresh evidence indicting Hushpuppi of committing fraud and money laundering in US federal correctional facility.

The alleged documents stated that Hushpuppi, while in US custody, participated in the purchase and laundering of Economic Impact Payment (EIP) debit cards fraudulently obtained from stolen data of US citizens and residents. The stolen data was then sold to other cybercriminals.

However, Warner, the director of research in computer forensics at the University of Alabama, noted that the document was an edited version of a June 2020 affidavit.

According to him, the new version of the document “was intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP 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,” tweeted Warner.

Meanwhile, Hushpuppi is due for sentencing on July 11, 2022.
