We have gathered that the FBI did a great deal of work before they were able to arrest Nigerian millionaire who turned out to be a scammer, Ray Hushpuppi. In a new development, we have found out that a minor mistake Huspuppi made with his last transaction become his waterloo.
Prior to his arrest, Hushpuppi uploaded a screenshot of GTBank credit alert of NGN300,000 with an email address that made us curious. The bank account was registered with a suspicious email address – firstname.lastname@example.org.
A “social engineer” (SE) took this email address and ran it through a virtual mail registry. Then, performed a number of mappings to determine the social profile of this anonymous identity.
When the SE compared the email from the virtual registry with the email from Hushpuppi‘s bank alert, it was a 100% match. But this is not the end. A step further to put a face to the mail address was also done and we see the email address was mapped to a single profile on Facebook, no suggestions or similar profiles at all. It is mapped directly to a single Facebook account: Jane Woodscrane.
So as you can see, he has been under the radar of INTERPOL for a period of time after this last episode.
