Ο «Influencer» Ρέιμοντ Αμπάς, γνωστός ως Hushpuppi, συνελήφθη γιατί έκλεψε 350 εκατ. λίρες από τους followers του.

Συγκεκριμένα, ο Νιγηριανός αστέρας του Instagram συνελήφθη, όταν το FBI και η Interpol εισέβαλαν στο διαμέρισμά του στο Ντουμπάι την ώρα που κοιμόταν και βρήκαν πάνω από 30 εκατομμύρια λίρες σε μετρητά.

In 2012 I signed up on this app called instagram, I like it how I can showcase myself here to the world beyond where I am, I have been exposed to many things on here and getting to meet a lot of great people and some not very great people lol through the years, I have had my ups and downs on this app too, I have shared celebratory moments with you all and sometimes I have experienced some not very nice times here too in front of you all but hey, that’s what makes up for a great experience, the good and the bad! Last year around this time I hit a million followers on here which means it took 6 years of back and forth to get a million followers, climbing up from that point it’s my honor to share with you all that it took just 365 days there about to hit another million followers as I hit 2 million followers today, a great day of the great country where I reside (Happy National Day UAE 🇦🇪) Two things this days means to me, it means no matter how hard the start up takes, it gets easier as u go through it and secondly and most importantly, the love from you all from all over the world who gather here today to follow me for various reasons, I say a big thank you to you all, I love you all from my heart and I just wanted to let you know I wouldn’t be who I am today without the love you all show to me.

Μάλιστα, ο υπεύθυνος του εγκληματολογικού τμήματος της αστυνομίας του Ντουμπάι Jamal al-Jalaf, δήλωσε ότι «οι ύποπτοι στοχοποιούσαν τα θύματα δημιουργώντας ψεύτικες ιστοσελίδες για γνώστες εταιρίες και τράπεζες με σκοπό την εξαπάτηση των θυμάτων».

Επίσης, οι Times τονίζουν ότι ο Jamal al-Jalaf είπε αναφορικά με τον Ρέιμοντ Αμπάς ότι μέσω των ψεύτικων ιστοσελίδων ο Νιγηριανός και οι συνεργάτες του έπαιρναν τους κωδικούς από τις πιστωτικές κάρτες των ανυποψίαστων followers ο οποίοι έδιναν τα στοιχεία τους για να προχωρήσουν για παράδειγμα σε κάποια αγορά.

Επιπλέον, στη συνέχεια το κύκλωμα προχωρούσε στο «ξέπλυμα» των κλεμμένων χρημάτων, ενώ κατά τη διάρκεια των επιδρομών, οι ερευνητές αποκάλυψαν διευθύνσεις ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου περίπου 2 εκατομμυρίων θυμάτων σε δεκάδες τηλέφωνα, υπολογιστές και σκληρούς δίσκους, ανέφερε η έκθεση.

Παράλληλα, οι Times υπογραμμίζουν ότι ο Νιγηριανός Influencer παρουσιάζει στα social media την χλιδάτη ζωή του με ακριβά αυτοκίνητα, ρούχα μεγάλων σχεδιαστών, ιδιωτικά τζετ και διακοπές στους κορυφαίους ταξιδιωτικούς προορισμούς του κόσμου, όπως στη Σαντορίνη.

Letter to the Ghetto Kid: As a man that I am today who developed from being one of you guys, who went through the same struggles you are presently going through, who had to run and jump hurdles where other kids just walk past the same situation in a better environment with better resources and much provisions, I know the society do not expect you to make it, the government don't care about your future, they toy and joke around making rules and laws that only affect you and benefit the rich. You lack everything it requires to become who you might have loved to be, do the things you would have loved to do or to live the life you may have seen on tv or the internet, which I know you even have limited access to because there's never power supply for such, which means you are deprived most of the things that can be learnt through tv and internet in the first place which makes your dreams smaller, quicker to fade away but I want you to know that darkness you are, without the dark, the stars won't shine and so you can shine out if that darkness. You have been deprived so many right a child deserves and the world look down on you because you are nothing but a clot of blood miraculously turned a baby, and an unfortunate one at that. Good health, good foods or good education hasn't been in any way your chance to have. Looking at you disgusts not your brethren only but even strangers are not so impressed for your unhealthy appearance. Your strength; courage; and dreams are nothing but hallucination just because you were not supposed to dream big. I am sure nobody ever believed in whatever you say or do. You have been victimized by neighbors; friends; and even family members who were supposed to give you hope. This is my story, this is me and this is the hushpuppi you have been hearing about. The Ghetto kid in me is at Its peak and ready to explode and spread around the globe. I am you and you are me. I represent every under priviledge kid of the world and especially of Nigeria and of Lagos and of Bariga and of Oworonsoki — Where a landlord had chased me and my family out of a rented room. I'll never forget the look on my mother's face trying to send me and my
