The suit alleges that the Trumps engaged in a “pattern of deceptive and unlawful conduct” in order to induce people to invest in projects that were not actually profitable.Image Credit: Google
In one example, the suit alleges that the Trumps promised investors that they would double their money within 18 months if they invested in a Trump-branded condo project in Panama.
But according to the suit, the project was “a complete failure” and the Trumps never delivered on their promise.
