The Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama, Gary Warner, says fresh allegations of $400,000 fraud filed against Abbas Ramon, also known as Hushpuppi is fake
Gary Warner took to his Twitter handle to refute the viral reports and the accompanying documents, adding that the said the document shared to back the report is a doctored version of a June 2020 affidavit.
He tweeted: "People are asking me if it is true that #Hushpuppi laundered $400,000 in #Stimulus cards from in prison.
"The document they show is an edit of a June 2020 Affidavit. The new version is fake, intended to get people to visit a scammer EIP website."

Further confirming the fresh fraud is fake, Thom Mrozek, spokesperson for the U.S. attorney-general’s office in Los Angeles told Premium Times that the fresh fraud levelled against Hushpuppi and document in circulation is fake.
Mrozek said, “After looking at the document excerpted in recent media accounts, the document appears to have been fabricated,
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, which filed the case against Mr. Abbas, has not filed any such document.
“We have checked with the FBI agent who supposedly authored the document, and he confirms it is a fake.”
