'Billionaire Gucci Master' is sentenced for 11 years in prison by a US court for fraud


The Nigerian Instagram influencer known as @hushpuppi and the Billionaire Gucci Master was sentenced to 11 years in prison in the United States for his role in a global theft and money-laundering scheme.


According to the US government, Ramon Abbas, 40, was sentenced Monday in Los Angeles to 135 months in prison after pleading guilty in April 2021 to conspiracy to engage in money laundering, which included assisting North Korean hackers in their attempts to steal more than $1.3 billion through cyber-enabled bank heists. Abbas waived most of his rights to appeal the sentence by agreeing to plead guilty, though he can still do so in limited circumstances.
