Popular American rapper, actor and producer, Curtis James Jackson III, professionally recognised as 50 Cent has published plans to launch a movie series based on the Nigerian net fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
News reviews that a United States District Court sitting in the Central District of California on Monday sentenced Hushpuppi to 11 years and three months.
The Nigerian was found responsible of laundering proceeds of a faculty financing scam, business email compromise and other fraudulent cyber schemes.
Hushpuppi is expected to spend only 9 years in prison, having spent two of the eleven years sentence in jail during the trial.
Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in June 2020 and used to be extradited to the United States on July 3.
He was arrested for defrauding over 1.9 million people, the majority of them being Americans.
The 37 years historic had earlier pleaded responsible to the costs filed towards him during the trial.
50 Cent who shared the images of the convict on his Instagram account on Wednesday stated that he is working on a film project based on Hushpuppi’s story.
The G-Unit Records founder wrote in the caption, “For my scammers, I gotta do this one. Hushpuppi sequence coming soon! GLG, Green Light Gang I don’t miss. #Bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #gunitfilmandtv.”
