Dubai resident and disgraced suspected Internet fraudster, Raymond Abbas, infamously known as Hushpuppi has been linked to yet another scam in the soccer world according to the FBI.

In 2014, Dutch professional football club, Feyenoord sold defender Stefan de Vrij to the Italian club, Lazio for the sum of 7 million euros. However, an email scam that would later be revealed to have been perpetrated by Hushpuppi and his gang, led the club (Lazio) to pay 1.75 million euros to the fraudsters.

This led to a lawsuit between both football clubs.

Fast forward to 2020, following the investigation by the Dubai e-police that led to the arrest of Hushpuppi by the FBI and Interpol, it was revealed that Hushpuppi was in fact the gang behind the scam.

OYOGist.com recalls that Hushpuppi and his gang had attempted to defraud an unnamed EPL club of 100 million pounds, in the moments leading up to his arrest. Hushpuppi and his co-conspirators defrauded over 1.9 million victims up to the tune of over $460 million.
