Attorney-at-law’s IG account replicated by fraudsters
High profile investor and attorney-at-law, Able-Don Foote

KINGSTON, Jamaica – High profile investor and attorney-at-law Able-Don Foote has revealed that his social media profile has been replicated by fraudsters.

The attorney-at-law's real instagram profile handle is @1abledon, however the imposters have created a fake profile @1abeldon with fake followers.

He is warning potential investors and members of the public not to engage in any business transactions with this fraudulent account.

"The matter has been reported to the police and also to the Jamaican Ambassador to the US for circulation. We are urging the public and other social media users to report the fake account @1abeldon to instagram," Foote told OBSERVER ONLINE.

The attorney-at-law stated that several reports about the fake account have been lodged officially to instagram, but this notice is to advise the public not to engage in any business transactions with this account.

Earlier this year, Astronomical Holdings Limited, a company led by attorney Foote, acquired around one per cent of pharmacy company Fontana Limited, worth about $100 million, from the family that founded the company.
