I've studied the 28 pages affidavit submitted by the FBI agent who investigated #Hushpuppi and I noted the following…
- In Hushpuppi's fraud network, he wasn't even the MAIN guy… His job was only to make bank accounts available for the Main guy to transfer the money into the accounts he provided.
So when next someone asks you to give them your account number for their friend in overseas to send them money through, please be careful. They can use your account to move illegal funds.
- The main guy who used to conduct the Hacking is not a Nigerian. He was arrested in October last year but the FBI detained him and may have used him to chat with hushpuppi.. So hushpuppi thought he was still communicating with his hacker without knowing that his hacker may have made a deal with FBI to nail him.
Here's the lesson - if you hire a Hacker for a dirty job, the day he gets arrested, he will become an asset to FBI and he will personally lure you into your grave. The main hacker's identity is protected because he's an asset to FBI but look at how hushpuppi was publicly disgraced because he's a MERE thief.
- The FBI agent that investigated the case leaned on Hushpuppi's Instagram and snapchat accounts to mail him further.
Beware of what you post on social media. Beware of your comments and inbox messages. Be careful.
- Hushpuppi has no I.T skills. He was a complete novice who just used to pay strangers to hack for him.
Lesson - the Hacker you are paying today will definitely destroy you tomorrow.
