Gal Pissetzky, the Lawyer to the alleged international fraudster, Ramon Abbas also known as Hushpuppi, has told the court that the Nigerian is not a fraudster. The lawyer told Forbes on Thursday that the Nigerian is a legitimate businessman who deals in real estate.
According to him, Hushpuppi “was running a legitimate business and a very legitimate Instagram account and did not take part in any scam or fraud.”
When asked to explain the accused’s extravagant lifestyle, the lawyer added, “He’s an entrepreneur. He has real estate involvement … (he’s) an Instagram personality. He was promoting brands and that’s how he was very legitimately making his money.”
Recall that the Dubai Police arrested and extradited Hushpuppi to the US where he is currently being tried for fraud.
