Instagram Influencer Who Bragged His Cars And Jets, Arrested For Multi-Million Dollar Cyber Scheme

Investigators used his digital trail to track him down.

  • Instagram influencer Ray Hushpuppi has been arrested in Dubai for alleged cyber crimes.
  • The Nigerian national, who claimed to be a real estate professional, has been fond of posting about his lavish lifestyle online.
  • Investigators used his digital trail to confirm his identity and link him to his illegal activities.

He’s got millions of followers on Instagram and people know him online as Ray Hushpuppi. His posts show him living a luxurious lifestyle as he flaunted his expensive cars, designer clothes, and private jets, among others.

Now the popular Dubai-based social media personality has been placed under arrest after accusations of him being involved in a multi-million hacking scheme in United States and Europe has recently surfaced. According to a federal affidavit filed in Los Angeles, his plethora of social media posts provided investigators with the much-needed basis to confirm his identity and connect him to the crimes.

Ramon Abbas a.k.a. Ray Hushpuppi has been arrested by authorities for alleged cyber crime schemes.

Investigators from the United Arab Emirates arrived at his apartment. Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation also came to take him to Chicago.

$41 million were seized, along with 13 luxury vehicles.
Abbas claimed to be a real estate developer in his Instagram profile.

However, allegations tell us that the Nigerian national is actually the leader of a global network that uses computers to steal from companies. He has also collaborated with several co-conspirators in the crime.

During the arrest, phone and computer evidence have been discovered, containing contact information of almost 2 million possible victims.

In a CNN report, we read US Attorney Nick Hanna saying:

“This case targets a key player in a large, transnational conspiracy who was living an opulent lifestyle in another country while allegedly providing safe havens for stolen money around the world.”

Abbas is expected to get a 20-year jail sentence once proven guilty of money laundering.
