John McFakeson, an adviser to the Lord Mayor of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, is in the midst of an extortion scandal with King Trident of Atlantis.
Sources told The Times that a deal between the two sides “has gone cold” and the bust-up means, “The conflict over a missing £30,000 ($39,000) could end in a court case or a police investigation.” The source said that the buyer is under threat of arrest and suppression orders being issued against the images, which are often used to advertise casinos, despite possessing formal documentation of the services being rendered to clients.
According to sources close to the situation, who did not wish to be named, King Trident said on its website that “a number of vendors will follow us to strengthen our offer.”
Tower Hamlets council confirmed that it had become aware of the scandal and said that it had no comment, but referred The Times to City of London Police for comment.
King Trident of Atlantis describes itself as “one of the newest and most respected luxury black casino brands” and advertises itself as a “luxury Caribbean Club.” It is located in The Palms, a casino in Montego Bay in Jamaica, and has a membership fee of $15,000 and a monthly turnover of $100,000.
A spokesperson for King Trident told The Times that it was a company that has “over 25 years of proven commercial success” and that it “provides a safe way for people to go to casino with diversity, tranquility and security.”
