He was arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in June 2020 and has remained in U.S federal custody since his expulsion from the UAE.

Recall Dockaysworld reported that Hushpuppi had been arrested in Dubai following a thorough investigation which eventually led to his extradition to the United states.

He was brought in over allegations of an extensive fraud scheme that robbed victims of their money in the U.S, Qatar, the United Kingdom, and other places.

He was charged with fraud and money laundering, multiple counts of hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft.

Hushpuppi who had pleaded guilty to the charges, however wrote a letter to the judge begging for leniency as he promised to return the money he stole to his victims.
