(CMR) Jenny Smith, a pyramid scam organizer, is preparing to leave the Cayman Islands for Honduras exclusive sources have shared. The decision comes after she moved from her home in East End after disgruntled “investors” were said to be looking for her.
Earlier in the week, CMR received a tip that Smith had booked her passage to return to Honduras on Thursday, November 19 at 10:00 a.m. on KX3880. We have now verified this information with multiple sources.
Smith, her fiance/husband, and sister were all involved in several Blossom family and friends gifting circle that took Cayman by storm with thousands seemingly falling for the high-risk scam. There is no confirmation on whether or not her husband will also be going to Honduras with her. At this time, Honduras remains closed to non-nationals because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Smith's group had upwards of 1,000 people in it with Bilma Linwood recruiting 700 of those persons primarily from East End and her workplace at Morritt's. Lindwood has shared with CMR that she was extremely remorseful for her part in the scam and was a misinformed participant. She remains hopeful that everything will be resolved soon.
Lindwood updated CMR that she has managed to pay back about 520 persons but needs Jenny and her accomplice husband to assist with the remaining 180.
“I recruited 700 people and paid out 90 and everyone put back in their other hand. So with them, many made up 500 I personal paid back 20 and give a few people 200 to some and still odd over 170.”
It appears that Linwood still doesn't grasp that the source of the funds was the new recruits and unless everyone pays back their “gift” it would be impossible for the money to be returned. It seems impossible to undo the pyramid but she remains hopeful.
Some of those concerned have said Smith will abscond with their money and are demanding that the police intervene and arrest her. One shared this week that she intended to contact the police and ask them to make an arrest for fraud. However, the police have previously shared that this is potentially a civil matter but not one that they will be involved in.
Another organizer, Tasha Monterroso, also left by boat for Honduras last month after she was pressured to return thousands of dollars she simply did not have. It appears that many of the organizers were from Honduras but Monterroso claimed in a Cold Hard Truth interview that the real culprits were high-level government workers.
