Hushpuppi who flaunted his extravagant lifestyle on social media is currently in the United States to face criminal charges alleging he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from business email compromise (BEC) frauds and other scams, including schemes targeting a U.S. law firm, a foreign bank and an English Premier League soccer club.
Hushpuppi and others allegedly conspired to steal £100 million (approximately $124 million) from an English Premier League soccer club.
Hushpuppi was arrested last month by UAE law enforcement officials.
