Usain Bolt is one of the most well-known athletes in the world, with the Jamaican sprinter dominating the Olympics like few other competitors have been able to, setting world records which are still yet to beaten.
He’s made headline after headline for his dominant performances on track, but lately he’s been in the news for the wrong reasons as he was subject to a crime that has left his ‘retirement’ in tatters after he was scammed.
Given all of his success and popularity, his bank account reflected the career and life of an athlete who dominated the field and was arguably the greatest ever sprinter of all time, but that’s now gone after $12.8 million turned into $12,000 after scammers took the majority of his finance from him.
What has been said about Usain Bolt being scammed?
Bolt’s Lawyer has threatened legal action against Stocks & Securities Limited, claiming: “If [the new balance] 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.”
They responded via a statement on their own website, stating: “We understand that clients are anxious to receive more information and assure you that we are closely monitoring the matter throughout all the required steps and will alert our clients of the resolution as soon as that information is available.”
