Members of Law Firm, Baker Donelson Linked to $100 Million Ponzi Scheme

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Two professionals from the law firm of Baker Donelson, partner, Jon Seawright and senior public policy advisor and non-lawyer, Brent Alexander have been linked to loaning money to Ponzi-scheme operator, Arthur Lamar Adams and his company Madison Timber Properties, LLC. Mr. Adams was charged in federal court with two counts of wire fraud for defrauding more than 250 investors out of approximately $100 million.

According to the criminal complaint, from as early as 2011 and continuing through April 2018, Mr. Adams solicited loans in the form of promissory notes from his company, Madison Timber Properties LLC. Instead of investing the funds he received, Mr. Adams used the funds for his personal benefit and to make payments due and owed to other investors, in a Ponzi-scheme like manner.

Furthermore, court records indicate that Madison Timbers received money from a company named Alexander Seawright LLC, which is owned by Mr. Alexander and Mr. Seawright.

Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for us. When we realized this was a very bad investment - we did not know where to turn for help. Then we received your name. When we called you - you were so kind to us and then agreed to help us. For this we are so very grateful. The world would be a much nicer place if there were more people like the two of you in it. We will always remember all the help and kindness you have shown us. Thank you so very very much for everything.
