The Nigeria image continues to be in shambles after the recent arrest of Hushpuppi and his crew in Dubai and a new scam using the accounts of virtually powerful people in the world has been attributed to them.

The Twitter accounts of Elon Musk, US presidential aspirant, Joe Biden, Kanye West, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and many more were hacked and a messages about giving back followed by a Bitcoin address for doubling.

See some below;

Many people seem to have fallen for the scam as in just the few minutes that the hack was active, it appears that over 10 bitcoin, or over $100,000 was sent to the hacker’s address.

The most offensive however is a foreign website, Zerohedge reporting the hack as “a version of a “Nigerian” bitcoin scam.”, in reference to Hushpuppi and his crew’s act.
