US Reveals How Hushpuppi Laundered Funds For North Korean Bank Hackers by Officialhorlah(m): 11:55am On Feb 20
New details have emerged about the case against Instagram influencer, Ramon Abbas, fondly referred to as Hushpuppi.

According to the United States of America's Department of Justice, Hushpuppi laundered money for North Korean hackers.

The revelation was made known when federal prosecutors in Los Angeles unsealed a case against one Ghaleb Alaumary, 37, of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, for his role as a money launderer for the North Korean conspiracy, among other criminal schemes.

Alaumary agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to engage in money laundering, a charge contained in criminal information filed in the United States District Court in Los Angeles on November 17, 2020.

Alaumary was a prolific money launderer for hackers engaged in ATM cash-out schemes, cyber-enabled bank heists, business email compromise (BEC) schemes, and other online fraud schemes.

Alaumary is also being prosecuted for his involvement in a separate BEC scheme by the United States Attorney's Office for Georgia's Southern District.

During Alaumary's confession, he fingered Hushpuppi as one of his co-conspirators.

The document read in part, "Concerning the North Korean co-conspirators' activities, Alaumary organized crews of co-conspirators in the United States and Canada to launder millions of dollars obtained through ATM cash-out operations, including from BankIslami and a bank in India in 2018.

"Alaumary also conspired with Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, aka 'Ray Hushpuppi', and others to launder funds from a North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019.

"Last summer, the US Attorney's Office in Los Angeles charged Abbas in a separate case, alleging that he conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from BEC frauds and other scams."
