The attorney representing Global Gateway Solutions, GGS, and its principal, Jacqueline Sutherland, is denying that the company or Ms. Sutherland received a large payment from proceeds of a ponzi scheme.

GGS operates a call centre in the Montego Bay Free Zone.

Mark Jones, who owns 49-percent of the company, has been indicted in the United States for fraud and allegedly operating a ponzi scheme.

An article on the website Caribbean News New claims that GGS’s majority shareholder, Jacqueline Sutherland, received a USD$485,000 payment from the proceeds of Jones’s alleged ponzi scheme.

Her attorney, Caroline Hay, is strongly refuting this.

Hay says Sutherland and GGS were blindsided by the allegations against Jones. She says their relationship was purely a business one.

She says they were partly assured about Jones’ background because they met him through the Jamaica Promotions Corporation, JAMPRO.

JAMPRO has since denied knowledge of Jones’s alleged ponzi scheme activities.

Speaking last week, President of Jampro, Diane Edwards said the corporation does its due diligence.
