Hushpuppi’s lawyer, Gal Pissetzky, has disclosed that his client is not guilty of the fraud allegations leveled against him, despite new evidence that has been submitted against him.
Pissetzky made this known in an interview with Forbes, insisting that Hushpuppi is a business man who operates legal and registered businesses.
The embattled Nigerian socialite and big boy, Hushpuppi, was apprehended months ago in Dubai and extradited to the United States for allegedly being part of a network that swindled “hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds and other scams.
The new evidence that was submitted against him in California shows that he used his personal email to register on a website “whizzlog” which is a marketplace for buying US bank logs and money laundering.
It was also alleged that his email address contained registration confirmation from Whizzlog and numerous confirmation and receipts of bank logs he purchased.
In Gal Pissetzky’s words,
“Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi is absolutely not guilty of all the charges they are accusing him of. Abass was running a very legitimate business and had a very legitimate Instagram account and did not take part in any scam or fraud. He is an entrepreneur, he has real estate business and was promoting brands, that’s how he was very legitimately making his money.”
