Hushpuppi made his first appearance in court last Friday in Chicago, following his extradition from the UAE. The alleged internet fraudster is expected to be transferred to Los Angeles in the weeks ahead.
Still in a related story about the fraudster, Legit.ng earlier reported that investigations into the alleged fraudulent activities of Hushpuppi revealed how he and his gang attempted to dupe a Premier League club to the tune of £100m (N48bn).
This was coming days after the Dubai police released footage that captured the operation dubbed ‘Fox Hunt 2’ that led to the arrests of Hushpuppi and his crew members at their luxury hotel residence.
After the extradition of the alleged fraudster, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director, Christopher Wray, also extended his appreciation to the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), represented by the Dubai Police General HQ, for the concerted efforts in arresting Hushpuppi, Woodberry and others who were nabbed during the operation.
