USAIN BOLT ALLEGEDLY SCAMMED OUT OF $12.7 MILLION
Yesterday (Jan. 18), Usain Bolt’s lawyers claimed $12.7 million disappeared from an account the retired Jamaican track star has with a private Kingston-based investment firm Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL).
According to a document obtained by The Associated Press from Attorney Linton P. Gordon, Bolt’s legal team sent a letter to the investment firm demanding that they return the money. Gordon said that the Olympic gold medalist’s account balance is now at $12,000.
“If this is correct, and we are hoping it is not, then a serious act of fraud, larceny, or a combination of both have been committed against our client,” Bolt’s attorneys stated in the letter.
