The sheer volume of scams that Donald Trump and his adult children have been involved in are mind-blowing. Trump University was determined to have defrauded students on its purpose and structure, and the president of the United States was forced to settle with students, hard-working Americans trying to get ahead the way Trump lies and says he did, who were promised far more than the “university” could deliver. The Trump Foundation, which promoted itself as a charity organization but turned out to be nothing more than a “blank check” for the Trump’s to scam donors out of money that they used themselves, according to the New York Attorney General, was not only shut down, but Trump has his children are barred from running charities entirely.

Then, there’s the ACN scam.

ACN, Inc. is a marketing firm promoted and endorsed by the Trump family. Representatives from ACN appeared on Celebrity Apprentice while Trump was hosting and he and his children pushed investments into their company and appeared alongside them in social media marketing promotions and other promotional spots for millions of dollars. That company defrauded its investors, inflated the company’s value, and those who invested in their company say they want a settlement and that they want the Trumps, who was the reason they trusted their investment in the company, to be held accountable.

Reuters reports that:

‘U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan said the plaintiffs, including investors in a Trump-endorsed business called American Communications Network, could pursue state law-based claims of fraud, false advertising and unfair competition.’

While a RICO case, which involves prosecuting organized crime operations, was shot down, the Trump family will face a lawsuit for their part in promoting the fraudulent company. Investors say that the Trump family used their fame and brand, as well as “false and misleading statements,” to draw them in, but the company was never able to deliver on their promises.

‘The plaintiffs claimed that the Trumps received millions of dollars of secret payments from 2005 to 2015 to endorse ACN and conned them into thinking Donald Trump thought their investments would pay off, when the real goal was to enrich ‘themselves.

‘Other defendants included Trump’s adult children Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka, and an affiliate of the Trump Organization.’

The Trump family loves to flaunt their wealth and success, but none of that seems all that glamorous once its revealed that they scammed millions of it from hopeful college students, charity donors, and investors trying to share in the American dream.

‘Roberta Kaplan, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said in an email she looked forward to continuing the case “to obtain justice for the plaintiffs, and thousands of other working Americans just like them, who each lost hundreds or thousands of dollars as a result of the defendants’ fraudulent scheme.”’
