Instagram speaks to the BBC saying it has banned the account of Nigerian influencer and international fraudster, Hushpuppi, for allegedly breaking fraud laws.
“We don’t want people to use our apps to cheat or cheat, and we have clear rules about cheating – including money laundering,” one tok said. -tok pesin for Meta, by Instagram, in a comment.
“We are banning the @hushpuppi account for allegedly breaking the rules,” the statement continued.
Hushpuppi, real name Ramon Abbas, posts beautiful photos on Instagram, because I show the expensive life to 2.8 million followers.
But the luxury life ends after the arrest for Dubai, I live, for June 2020.
Less than a year later, I pleaded guilty to money laundering in an American court, and they considered me one of the most notorious criminals in the world, according to the FBI.
Court documents say that my last project was to try to steal another $1.1m from the school building for Qatar.
I get contacts all over the world and some of the projects are spread from Malta to Mexico.
The documents in the file for California say the crimes cost about $24m, and I received a 20 year prison sentence.
Despite Hushpuppi’s guilty plea last year, Instagram would not remove my account at that time, as they said they would investigate and decide not to remove their account.
The cancellation of the account was first reported by the Nigerian media on Sunday.
According to the Meta law on fraud, they try to “prevent fraud that harms people or business”.
Hushpuppi’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 7 at 11:30 am Los Angeles time, 7:30 pm Nigerian time.
