Hushpuppi, an embattled internet celebrity, was on Friday charged with the conspiracy to commit money laundering before a United States court, one for which he could get a maximum jail term of 20 years if convicted.
The self-acclaimed influencer, whose real name is Raymond Abass, is facing criminal charges alleging he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from business email compromise (BEC) frauds and other scams.
Among these are schemes that allegedly saw him and his associates target a law firm in the US, a foreign financial institution, and an English Premier League soccer club.
Paul Delacourt, the assistant director of FBI’s Los Angeles field office, compared his case to one that cost US victims, including individuals and firms, a $1.7 billion loss back in 2017.
