How Hushpuppi Used A Fake Email Address To Receive Huge Cash In Minutes by TheKingIsHere: 4:58pm On Jun 10, 2020
I just want to say that if you are into internet fraud, you WILL surely get caught because you must make a mistake which will come back to haunt you.

Thats the mistake Husppupi made when he received funds via a suspicious email address as far back as 2017.

This kept him on the FBI and Interpol radar. Read the story;

How one little mistake exposed Nigeria’s socialite, Hushpuppi’s source of wealth and why we all should be worried.

FYI, this piece isn’t completely about Hushpuppi, it’s more about your cyber safety.

If you follow handles like Instablog9ja on Instagram, you must have come across Hushpuppi. He’s one of the individuals that musician, 9ice, mentioned in his controversial hit song Living Things which was widely believed as promoting internet fraud(sters) in Nigeria; although 9ice refuted that on Channels TV’s Rubbin’ Minds with Ebuka.

Hushpuppi is probably the most familiar name among the young Nigerians mentioned on 9ice’s song and has been in the center of controversies including exchange of words with music superstars Davido, Phyno and KCee. This prompted a vast inquiry into his source of income. There was little confirmation and more hearsay until he took to Snapchat to ask some of his friends for money. Responding to those asking what he did for living, he said he begged for a living. Looking at the facts that subsequently emerged, he might have actually meant it.



In his bid to show off his rich friends who send a lot of money to him, Hushpuppi uploaded a screenshot of GTBank credit alert of NGN300,000 with an email address that made us curious. The bank account was registered with a suspicious email address – jwoodscrane@yahoo.com

A “social engineer” (SE) took this email address and ran it through a virtual mail registry. Then, performed a number of mappings to determine the social profile of this anonymous identity. When the SE compared the email from the virtual registry with the email from Hushpuppi‘s bank alert, it was a 100% match. But this is not the end. A step further to put a face to the mail address was also done and we see the email address was mapped to a single profile on Facebook, no suggestions or similar profiles at all. It is mapped directly to a single Facebook account: Jane Woodscrane

The account has just a few pictures with the usual Facebook privacy feature turned on, which is said to be very peculiar with Nigerian scammers.

According to the SE, Hushpuppi probably has more aces up his sleeves beyond creating fake accounts and using such to get money from unsuspecting individuals.

Why you should be worried
Many times, unsuspecting Nigerians will have their accounts hacked or cloned. Then the person behind the act would start reaching out to the friends of the individual; asking them for money and other favours. This is why it is very important for everyone to take action to ensure that they have not been hacked or cloned.

When a hacker hacks an account, he or she would probably change the access password and takeover the account. What often happens in Nigeria is the original account holder would go and create another one and the hacker would have a field day with the first account. It may be Facebook or an email. However, creating a new account isn’t enough, there are ways to report the hacked account to Facebook and Google.

I also recommend that you search for your name on Facebook and Google, just to know what will turn up in case someone else has created another account in your name and is targeting your friends.

Take it a step further and run a Google Image search to ensure that your image isn’t being used by someone else to deceive people. It is easy to do. Just go to image.google.com, drag and drop an image into the search box and matches will come up.

Hushpuppi was into online fraud and email scam all these while and was even caught as far back as 2017.

Unfortunately, people didn't see this sign as a caution to his source of wealth

Oyinbo will take their time to gather enough evidence while allowing the suspect to think that they have escaped.

The FBI or Interpol will then strike when the culprit least expect.

Same thing was done to Invictus Obi

You're a fool if hushpuppi's arrest is what makes you know that he's a fraudster. 99% guys showing off balling on Instagram are all into fraud no legit one among them no matter how much they try to edit their Instagram and Twitter page, the legit guys don't show off. While the ladies are into higher runs (hook ups), don't let anybody fool you online.

They know themselves.

Hush and his gang will expose more of the wire boys so that they can get a lighter jail sentence
