Trump Must Face Suit Over Alleged Multilevel Marketing Fraud




President Donald Trump, his company and three of his children must face a class-action lawsuit in which people claim they were scammed into spending money on fraudulent, multilevel marketing ventures and a dubious live-seminar program.

U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan ruled Wednesday that the case can go forward with claims of fraud, unfair competition, and deceptive trade practices. The decision likely opens the door for the plaintiffs to start gathering evidence from Trump and his company, including documents and testimony....

A group of four people claims the Trumps ripped off thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs by promoting two bogus multilevel marketing ventures and the live-seminar program that promised to teach Trump’s “secrets to success” in real estate. They’re seeking to sue on behalf of a nationwide class of people they claim were also cheated.

They sued in October using the names Jane Doe, Luke Loe, Richard Roe and Mary Moe, claiming they feared Trump’s habit of criticizing opponents on Twitter and exposing them to potential retaliation by his followers. Schofield let them remain anonymous at least until her decision on the Trumps’ motion to dismiss the case. She’ll likely revisit the question now that she’s ruled.

3. Well, at least they learned his "secrets to success."

Lesson V: My Secret to Success.
Scam, cheat, swindle, kiss up to Vlad, and above all, lie your ass off about all of it. Don't forget to threaten to sue anyone who tells the truth about you. Don't you feel smarter now?

5. I hope the judge continues to allow plaintiff anonymity.

Given Trump tactics, that could be vital.
