Hushpapi’s prison fraud claims

A new information making rounds on social media indicted Hushppupi of engaging in fraud to the tune of $400,000 even while at a U.S. Federal penitentiary institution.

According to the details previously shared by Nigerian blog, ‘Instablog9ja’, between January 28 and March 4, 2022, security authorities at a federal prison in the United States detected that Hushpuppi was using the internet often.

This triggered suspicions, which led the security team to record Hushpuppi’s actions, knowing the reason for which he was initially arrested was for an internet-related crime.

Per reports, his activities were tracked over the course of seven days on a system built up just for him and what they noticed was shocking to the team.

It was discovered that underground cybercriminal marketplace was discovered to be selling EIP debit cards to Hushpuppi. A total of 58 EIP debit cards, worth $429,800, were purchased on the site by the influencer.
