The details are still sketchy but the report is that the Nigerian socialites, Hushpuppi and Woodberry have been arrested by International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL).
There are speculations but nothing can be confirmed.
A popular Nigerian journalist Kemi Olunloyo who took the news on the social media page to announce it.
Her tweets reads….
“Taking to her verified Instagram page, Kemi wrote;
“#BREAKING UPDATE @mrwoodbery and @hushpuppi implicated by the @secretservice in a Nigerian Unemployment Insurance scam named #ScatteredCanary.
It is too elaborate. Only thing I can say is everyday for the thieves, one day for the owner. It is a dark day in Nigeria. HushPuppi and Woodberry and others are on their way to America. I was also told that their properties have been sealed with warrants”.”
What Did Hushpuppi Did To Get Arrested By The Interpol?
Security researchers found that the #ScatteredCanary team filed hundreds of fraudulent unemployment claims in the wake of COVID-19.
The highly organized Nigerian group is known to have committed unemployment fraud and similar types of attacks over its 10-year history. It is therefore not surprising that the group abused Covid-19 to launch additional campaigns.
The scam starts with an email in which the victim’s company’s HR office requests a #Zoom meeting to define their layoff practice. The panicked victims connect to a zoom page (obviously fake) that asks for their data.
The conclusion of this sad story❓ The data of the poor victims are taken by the criminals to make a request on their behalf to the unemployed department of their competence!
Who Are The INTERPOL?
INTERPOL is the international criminal police organisation originated with the first International Criminal Police Congress in 1914, which brought officials from 24 countries to discuss cooperation on law enforcement matters.
It was founded in 1923 as the International Criminal Police Commission (ICPC), adopting many of its current duties throughout the 1930s. After coming under Nazi control in 1938, the agency was effectively moribund until after the Second World War. In 1956, the ICPC adopted a new constitution and the name INTERPOL, derived from its telegraphic address used since 1946.
INTERPOL provides investigative support, expertise, and training to law enforcement worldwide, focusing on three major areas of transnational crime: terrorism, cybercrime, and organized crime. Its broad mandate covers virtually every kind of crime, including crimes against humanity, child pornography, drug trafficking and production, political corruption, copyright infringement, and white-collar crime. The agency also facilitates cooperation among national law enforcement institutions through criminal databases and communications networks. Contrary to popular belief, INTERPOL is itself not a law enforcement agency.
