Hushpuppi has hired the services of a top US criminal defence lawyer, Gal Pissetzky in his attempts to beat a multiple count of criminal conspiracy to commit fraud.

1st News reports that Hushpuppi, whose real name is Ramon Abbas, was nabbed in Dubai last week. The alleged fraudster was arrested in a high-wire sting operation codenamed Fox Hunt 2. Hushpuppi stands accused of overseeing an alleged $431 million cyber scam. He has since been extradited to the US where he will face trial.

However, the Nigerian Instagram celebrity is not prepared to go down without fighting.

In court documents sighted by 1st News, Hushpuppi had retained the services of Pissetzky; a senior partner in Chicago law firm Pissetzky and Berliner to help him beat the fraud rap.

Pissetzky was called to the bar in 2002 and has practiced in Chicago since 2002. Further, his firm is reputed as one of the best in the Chicago area. Also, he has been retained by a number of high-profile clients including the late pop star, Michael Jackson.

Hushpuppi was accused of targeting victims overseas by creating fake websites for well-known companies and banks; in a bid to steal victims’ credit card information and then launder the stolen money; the Dubai police spokesperson Mr Jamal al-Jalaf said.

Investigators said Hushpuppi, 37, who passed himself off as a wealthy real estate developer; flaunted his collections of luxury cars, shoes, watches, and other goods to help “lure victims from all over the world”.

The FBI and Interpol raided his Dubai apartment as he slept; seizing more than £30 million or $37 million in cash.

The trial began on Friday, July 3, 2020, in a United States court and if convicted; the alleged internet fraudster could face a sentence of up to 20 years in jail.

US authorities say Hushpuppi will be transferred to Los Angeles in the coming weeks. However, he has decided to hire Pissetzky to guide him through the process of transfer to Los Angeles. Pissetzky made his first appearance for Hushpuppi at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on July 6.
