Nigerian influencer Ramon Olorunwa Abbas mostly referred to as Hushpuppi on Instagram could bag 20 years jail term.
The 38-year-old pleaded guilty to being part of a gang that tried defrauding an unnamed Premier League outfit of over £100 million.
Hush was busted by the FBI alongside his cohorts after scamming so many people who fell victim to his scheme.
The social media personality flaunted his affluence all over the internet with pictures alongside his expensive cars, in private jets, and expensive clothes.
Sport Bible was said to have been valued at £29 million while he also owned 13 luxury cars amongst his possessions.
The publication further revealed that the cartel sent the club an email scam in which legitimate email addresses were 'hacked and spoofed.'
Although it is unclear yet if the EPL outfit paid the money in 2019, many British people and many others in across the globe were said to have fallen victims in a scam that saw businesses lost about £200 million or more as reported by SunSport.
