HUSHPUPPI 
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, have recently released a
documentary video of how they caught popular Nigerian socialite and suspected internet fraudster, Raymond Abbas, popularly known as, Hushpuppi.

Raymond Abbas alias Hushpuppi was arrested in his Dubai apartment by members of the Interpol on allegations bordering on internet fraud and online scams running into millions of dollars.

The Bureau had flagged down his account after he used it to post "Started out my day having sushi down at Nobu in Monte Carlo, Monaco, then decided to book a helicopter to have... Facials at the Christian Dior spa in Paris then ended my day having champagne in Gucci".

He was then expedited to the United States of America where he has since been charged to court and is being held in one of the country's correctional facilities.

In the video that was recently released by the FBI. The bureau revealed that a post which the suspected fraudster had made on Instagram was instrumental to his subsequent arrest and detention.
According to the video, Hushpuppi had used the same email and contact information which he had used to scam a victim of millions of dollars to register his personal Instagram page.

The Bureau had flagged down his account after he used it to post "Started out my day having sushi down at Nobu in Monte Carlo, Monaco, then decided to book a helicopter to have... Facials at the Christian Dior spa in Paris then ended my day having champagne in Gucci".


The FBI then realized that the post had emanated from an Instagram account with the same email address and phone number as those that were used to scam an unsuspecting victim of several millions of naira. It was then that his arrest was ordered.


Several persons who watched the video have wondered why an allegedly internationally acclaimed criminal in the mould of Hushpuppi would use same information used to do dirty dealings on his personal Instagram account.

According to those who reacted to the video, Hushpuppi was actually not as smart as he has been portrayed.
