American cybercrime expert, Gary Warner, has revealed that the document which claimed that an alleged international Internet fraudster and Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, aka, Hushpuppi, laundered $400k in prison was fake.
It was gathered that it was all a plot to get people to visit a scammer website where people can be defrauded.
Warner who is the Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama, made it known that the document was an edited version of a June 2020 affidavit.
He made this announcement on his Twitter page as he revealed that the new version of the document “was intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP (Economic Impact Payments) website.”
He wrote, “People are asking me if it is true that #Hushpuppi laundered $400,000 in #Stimulus cards from in prison.
“The document they show is an edit of a June 2020 Affidavit. The new version is fake, intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP website.”
This came shortly after a purported document, which went viral on Thursday, 17th of March, showed that Hushpuppi, who was currently on trial, laundered $400,000 while he is still prison.
