Thursday, March 17, 2022 – Flamboyant Nigerian fraudster, Hushpuppi, has reportedly received fresh charges after US prosecutors submitted court documents showing that he committed fraud and laundered over $400K while in prison.

The court documents stated that Hushpuppi, while in U.S Federal correctional facility, participated in the purchase and laundering of Economic Impact Payment debit cards fraudulently obtained from stolen data of U.S citizens and residents.

Economic Impact Payments are financial support offered by the US government to U.S residents according to the CARES Act.

 One of the ways eligible US residents receive their Economic Impact Payments is by debit cards.

Hushpuppi is said to have bought the debit cards from an underground cybercriminal network 

Like the rest of the detainees, Hushpuppi was granted access to the computer network after he was detained.

 However, between January 28 and March 4, 2022, security authorities at a federal prison in the United States noticed that Hushpuppi was using the internet more often. 

A dedicated system was set up for him by FBI agents and his activities were recorded for 7 days.

It was found that Hushpuppi was actively buying EIP debit cards from an underground cybercriminal marketplace called StimulusCard. 

While being recorded, Hushpuppi bought a total of 58 EIP debit cards with a total value of $429,800 on the site and laundered the money through a friend.
