Hushpuppi Commits $400k Fraud Inside US Prison


New charges have been leveled against Hushpuppi, an imprisoned Nigerian Instagram big boy, alleging that he committed fraud and laundered more than $400,000 while incarcerated in the United States.

However, Gary Warner, an American cybercrime expert, has refuted the circulating document, calling it “false and designed to lure consumers to visit a scammer EIP website.”

The document they provided Gary was an update of a June 2020 Affidavit, according to Gary.On March 16th, 2022, the fresh evidence was allegedly presented to the United States District Court of California, accusing Hushpuppi of fraud and money laundering at a federal prison.

According to records, the accused reportedly engaged in the acquisition and cleaning of Economic Impact Payment debit cards obtained unlawfully from stolen data of US individuals and residents while in a federal detention facility in the United States.

The CARES Act mandates that the US government help U.S. citizens who relocate abroad with financial aid.

Debit cards are a way for eligible US individuals to receive Economic Impact Payments.


Hackers utilized data from court records to apply for and get Economic Impact Payments debit cards.

In underground marketplaces, these EIP cards are sold to other cybercriminals.

Although convicts, like the rest of the detainees, had limited access to the telephone, video, internet, and computer use due to their right to privacy in a court file, Hushpuppi was given access to the computer network as well.

However, security officials at a Federal jail in the United States found that Hushpuppi was utilizing the internet more frequently between January 28 and March 4, 2022.

After knowing that Hushpuppi had been imprisoned for internet-related charges and that the warrant would be used against him, they obtained an order to record his actions.

On a system created just for him, his activities were tracked over the course of seven days.

Hushpuppi was detected selling EIP debit cards on an underground cybercriminal marketplace.

Hushpuppi allegedly acquired 58 EIP debit cards worth $429,800 on the site while being recorded and then laundered the money through one AJ.
