Gal Pissetzky, the lawyer representing the popular Nigerian socialite, Hushpuppi has disclosed that his client is not guilty of fraud allegations leveled against him.
Pissetzky made this known during an interview with Forbes, as he insists that his client is a businessman who operates legal and registered businesses.
In his 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.”
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.
