Recent reports claiming internet celebrity, Ramon Abbas, better known as Hushpuppi, laundered over $400,000 while inside a U.S. jail are fake, an American cybercrime expert has revealed.
Gary Warner, the Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama, took to Twitter to dismiss the viral allegations and documents.
Warner said the document shared to back the report is a doctored version of a June 2020 affidavit.
He added that the edited document was intended to get people to visit a scammer website.
