Alleged Internet Fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi has reportedly hired Mark Geragos, a former lawyer to the late Micheal Jackson.
This was made known by music producer Samklef who seems shocked on the
update that Mark Geragos was hired by Hushpuppi, as he noted that the suspect
might not even spend much time in jail.
He wrote on social media:
“This movie go sweet pass Netflix… he might not even spend all his time.. he will work with the government and regain his freedom”.
The popular attorney who has been involved in high profile cases of this nature,
has in the past represented celebrities like Winona Ryder, Chris Brown, Colin
Kaepernick and Scott Peterson.
Ramon Olorunwa Abbas appeared in a federal court in Chicago on Friday. He is
accused of conspiring to launder hundreds of millions of dollars through cybercrime schemes.
According to a federal affidavit, one of the alleged victims was the client of a New
York-based law firm that lost nearly a million dollars in 2019.
Hushpuppi was arrested last month by law enforcement officials in the United Arab
Emirates and transferred to the US this week by the FBI.
Prosecutors allege Abbas is one of the leaders of a global network that uses
computer intrusions, business email compromise (BEC) schemes and money laundering capers to steal hundreds of millions of dollars.
