How Hushpuppi and His Team Worked

According to reports from the Dubai Police Headquarters, Hushpuppi and his team of scammers were known for creating fake pages for existing websites in order to redirect victims’ payments to their own accounts. As soon as this is done, they clear off the money and simply look out for other funding initiatives from companies abroad so they can restrategize.

How Dubai Police Caught Them

The international fraud case wouldn’t have been solved if not for the Dubai Police’s reputable professionalism and patience which made them wait for about 4 months before Hushpuppi and 10 other members of the scam ring were caught.

After months of investigations and monitoring their social media accounts, their whereabouts and fraudulent activities were discovered and this hastened up their arrest days ago. It took the Dubai Police 6 raids carried out simultaneously while the suspects were sleeping in their Dubai residences to discreetly cover up tracks and close in on the scammers.

After his arrest, the Commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police, Abdulla Khalifa Al Mani said “the arrest of Hushpuppi, Woodberry and 10 other gang members involved in money laundry and other cyber-activities is another achievement added to the proud record of Dubai Police in ensuring the Emirate’s security and safety”.
