There is an unconfirmed report alleging that Nigerian socialite, Hushpuppi is among the cyber crime ring of Nigerians arrested in connection with attempting to defraud the U.S governments of monies worth hundreds of millions of dollars meant for unemployed Americans.
Kemi Olunloyo shares more details via her Instagram handle @kemiolunloyo. She wrote: “#BREAKING UPDATE @mrwoodbery and @hushpuppi implicated by the @secretservice in a Nigerian Unemployment Insurance scam named #ScatteredCanary. For those who don’t know what this is, this is money the US government gives us monthly when we lose our jobs while we are looking for another. Somehow the Nigerian ring cracked into the system and filed 174+ fraudulent claims. People’s #COVID19 stimulus payments gone. It is too elaborate. Only thing I can say is everyday for the thieves, one day for the owner. It is a dark day in Nigeria. HushPuppi and Woodberry and others are on their way to America. I was also told that their properties have been sealed with warrants”.
