Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general, said that Mr. Trump bogusly appeared in advertisements for the school and made false promises to more than 5,000 people who got suckered in to the curriculum from around the country. He influenced his students to spend tens of thousands of dollars they could hardly afford for lessons that they never received.
Donald Trump claimed to have hand picked the school’s instructors which was a lie. According to the lawsuit, he had not chosen a single instructor at the school and had prepared no curriculum’s for any of the school’s courses.
Trump has blamed the lawsuits and attacks on president Obama in an attempt to relieve himself of responsibility for what many have described as the ultimate pyramid scheme.
