According to the United States Government’s Department of Justice website, Ramoni Igbalode a.k.a. Hushpuppi and his cybercrime team allegedly attempted scamming an English Premier League club of $124 million.
Hushpuppi who flaunted his extravagant lifestyle on social media is currently in Chicago, United States to face criminal charges alleging he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from business email compromise (BEC) frauds and other scams, including schemes targeting a U.S. law firm, a foreign bank and an English Premier League soccer club.
Hushpuppi and others allegedly conspired to steal £100 million (approximately $124 million) from a British Premier League side.
Hushpuppi was arrested last month by UAE law enforcement officials.
