'RUN' Back Mi Money; Sprint Legend Usain Bolt Asked SSL Nicely

Sprint legend Usain Bolt has given fraud-hit investment firm Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL) 10 days to pay over approximately $2 billion that he said was in his account up to October 2022.

Last week, SSL disclosed that several of its clients were allegedly fleeced of millions of dollars in local and foreign currencies given to the firm to invest.

Bolt's attorney Linton Gordon wrote to SSL on Monday, January 16 threatening a lawsuit if the 100m-world record holder's money is not paid over in 10 days of that date.

According to the letter, the 36-year-old had a balance of J$2 billion or US$12.7 million as at October 31, 2022.

The figure plummeted to J$1.8m or US$12,000 when Bolt checked his accounts after an ex-employee linked to the scheme reportedly alerted him on January 11.

SSL reported that it discovered the fraud in early January and that the ex-employee, a wealth advisor, has been implicated.
