Trump UniversityFraud and Financial Damage

1 Review updated:

I second all comments made in the November posting. I maxed out my cards to pay for the Elite Gold Package, and my credit score plummeted from 719 to 633. And, the courses are total "fluff". I actually counted the instructional hours at the last 3-day "retreat" I took on commercial real estate. There were exactly 5.5 hours of "training", with the rest of the time spent on breaks (where there were no refreshments other than tap water with ice), starting late, upselling the "CD" recording of that seminar I was sitting in (but not allowed to record) and my favorite, the seminar leader selling his own books and programs. It was really all too much.

I'm also a Realtor, and 2 days later I took a 1-day class given by another realtor, a real expert in commercial real estate. And I learned more in that 7.5 hours than I did the entire 3 days at the Trump seminar. I paid less than $500 for that course. The Trump course was $5, 000.

I've contacted Trump University and they say they are not going to refund a penny. Well, anyone who wants to join in a lawsuit, I'd like to see this kind of fraud stopped. The Donald has enough money, don't you think?

    Like most of you, I signed up for the Trump University 3 day retreat, but was not able to attend the class because of a family emergency. I have been trying to get my refund going on three months. Each time I call, they keep giving me the run around about my refund. I don’t know what else to do. Filing a complaint to the BBB is not going to get my money back, because I've already tried that. Seeking legal action would end up costing me more than the $1495 I paid for the class. I can not turn my back and do nothing, that is a lot of money for me. It may be pocket change for Donald. If anyone have any suggestion please email me at [protected]

    I agree with the fact of having a law suite against Trump University. I have had a similar experience with Trump University on some courses. Both courses were of poor quality and didn't work. I still haven't been able see one course due to it not working.
