A major international money launderer known for flaunting his ill-gotten wealth on social media received a 135-month federal prison sentence Monday, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, a 40-year-old Nigerian citizen, originally pled guilty to a single count of conspiring to engage in money laundering to the tune of tens of millions of dollars in April 2021, according to the DOJ.

Also known as “Ray Hushpuppi,” “Hush,” or the “Billionaire Gucci Master,” Abbas maintained numerous aliases across multiple social media platforms, according to Bloomberg. His Instagram account with the handle “@Hushpuppi” had over 2 million followers.
