The sentencing of the serial Internet Fraudster, Ramon Abbas, infamously known as Hushpuppi, will be held on Monday, November 7.
There had been reports on Friday making rounds that Hushpuppi had already been sentenced to 11 years in prison in the United States, but according to the BBC, those reports were fake.
Hushpuppi, the Nigerian internet fraudster on trial in the US had been arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in June 2020 and was immediately extradited to the United States on July 3.
He was arrested for defrauding over 1.9 million people, with the majority of them being Americans. The 37 years old had already pleaded guilty to the charges filed against him.
Previously in October 2022, the trial judge, Otis Wright, of the US Central District Court in California had postponed the sentencing to Monday, November 7, 2022.
“Counsels have been notified. The sentencing is continued to November 7, 2022, at 11.30 am as to Defendant Ramon Olorunwa Abbas,” the court announcement postponing the sentencing had read.
