Hushpuppi has been charged for “obtaining money from others through fraudulent means” by prosecutors as he has remained in the custody of the Dubai Police since his arrest on June 10.
The Security officers in the United Arab Emirate arrested Hushpuppi and 12 others for online fraud that targets companies and individuals.
A senior prosecutor on the case released a statement saying “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 the prosecution but this is just the beginning of prosecution investigations,” he added
Hushpuppi is also being pursued by Interpol as he is wanted for other related crimes committed in other countries.
