Raymond Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi, was last week arrested by Interpol in Dubai over fraud related issues.
Currently he is being questioned by prosecutors at the Bur Dubai Section.
HushPuppi was charged for “obtaining money from others through fraudulent means.”
Security officers in the emirate arrested Mr Abbas and 12 others for online fraud that targets companies and individuals
A senior prosecutor said “They would send out letters from email addresses almost identical to those of legitimate companies, targeting customers of these companies, with the purpose of diverting payments to themselves,”
“Initial information includes that he was part of this gang which fraudulently obtained cash and cars from people. “His statement was taken by prosecution but this is just the beginning of prosecution investigations.”
He is wanted for fraud crimes in Europe, the United States and Nigeria.
