INSTAGRAM celebrity Ray Hushpuppi has been arrested for allegedly trying to steal £100million from a Premier League club.
The 37-year-old, real name Ramon Abbas, was arrested in Dubai last month after a lengthy FBI investigation.
He was then transferred to the United States and has appeared in court in Chicago.
Hushpuppi loves to flaunt his wealth on Instagram with pictures of himself alongside luxury cars and jets.
But it is claimed that the investigators were able to track his movements by his online activity.
In court documents, the US Department of Justice alleged: “Abbas maintains social media accounts that frequently showed him in designer clothes, wearing expensive watches and posing in or with luxury cars and charter jets.
“The FBI’s investigation has revealed that Abbas finances this opulent lifestyle through crime.”
He is accused of hacking corporate emails and tricking staff into money transfers.
The Premier League club has not been identified.

Hushpuppi also faces charge for allegedly laundering millions of dollars in stolen money.
The Department of Justice said: “Abbas and others further conspired to launder hundreds of millions of dollars from other fraudulent schemes and computer intrusions, including one scheme to steal £100m from an English Premier League soccer club.”
It is reported that he will face a maximum sentence of 20 years if he is found guilty of conspiracy to engage in money laundering – but he is yet to respond to the claims.
