Does Trump University Owe You Money?

 

In a stunning turnaround, Donald Trump apparently agreed to pay $25 million to settle the Trump University case with the New York Attorney General. That’s good news for former students of the defunct phony school. They now stand to get reimbursed for the tuition money they paid for a worthless education.

In 2013, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman accused Trump of defrauding more than 6000 students who enrolled in Trump University thinking they would get a world-class education in real estate. Some paid as much as $35,000 for what amounted to very little.

 Schneiderman said, “Donald Trump fought us every step of the way, filing baseless charges and fruitless appeals and refusing to settle for even modest amounts of compensation for the victims of his phony university.”

Trump’s agreement to the settlement also means that he will pay New York State penalties of $1million.

If you enrolled in Trump University and you qualify for reimbursement, get in touch with the New York Attorney General here with New York AG or call 1-800-771-7755.
