Convicted fraudster, Obinwanne Okeke, better known as Invictus Obi, says it is an insult to compare him with self professed international fraudster, Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi.
Invictus is serving a 10-year jail term for $11m fraud in a United States prison while Hushpuppi is facing charges bordering on conspiracy to launder money obtained from business email compromise frauds and other scams in the North American country.
Invictus, according to Yahoo News, claims he took to fraud to empower his people while Hushpuppi defrauded people in order to show off on social media.
Invictus, when the going was good appeared on prominent platforms giving economic and motivational speeches.
When asked on their similarities, he thundered, "It’s insulting. Hushpuppi and I are not on the same level."
The former 'Forbes Africa 30 under 30' explained that he established a business through which he changed lives, created jobs and conquered the business world unlike Hushpuppi who aimed to please the crowd. His community back home, Invictus claimed has been transformed through the works of his charity foundation.
Hushpuppi led a flamboyant life, traveling exotically.
Asserting that he has made a much more positive contribution to society than Hushpuppi, he queried, "which lives has he helped? Nobody."
