In June 2020, Hushpuppi was apprehended in Dubai, where he resided. Hushpuppi and others allegedly fabricated the school’s finance “by playing the roles of bank officials and establishing a false website,” according to acting US Attorney Tracy Wilkinson.

“They bribed a foreign official to keep the intricate ruse continuing after the victim was tipped off,” according to the report.

Hushpuppi “financed his affluent lifestyle by laundering unlawful proceeds generated by con artists,” she claimed, adding that he “played a substantial role” in the scheme.
