Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick each face a $20 million lawsuit after promoting a fake lottery scheme.
As reported, participants in the contest were eligible to win high-end prizes such as $100,000 cash. Additionally, first-class tickets to Los Angeles and a three-night stay in Beverly Hills came with the lottery.
A lottery was set up by Disick, allegedly with the assistance of an Australian company, Curated Businesses.
There are, however, some participants who claim that the 2020 lottery was fraudulent. To market to advertisers, they sold their personal information through the lottery.
According to a lawsuit filed by some participants, a number of their accounts are being “invaded by hundreds of advertisers, some of which are soliciting the Plaintiffs with potentially offensive and unwanted content.”
Kim Kardashian was among the celebrities who promoted the lottery on Instagram. Her family also help her advertise the scam, which includes Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Kylie Jenner.
Apart from her family, Sofia Richie, Gretchen Christine Rossi, and Christine Quinn marketed the scam. Furthermore, Curated Businesses told a news outlet that their winners are authentic and have the paperwork to prove it.
Specifically, the lawsuit claims, “Just a short 20 years ago, Oprah was giving away cars and cash. But today’s entertainment tycoons seem to only care about becoming richer and living an even more opulent lifestyle while duping their fans and followers.”
Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are the only celebrities involved in the lawsuit.
