Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are being sued for alleged contest fraud.
According to TMZ, a $40 million class action lawsuit has been launched against Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick on the grounds that they defrauded their fans by holding a lottery in which no one was really a winner.
Kim and Scott are accused of using Curated Businesses to advertise a sweepstake in which the grand prize consists of $100,000, two first-class plane tickets to Los Angeles, a three-night stay in a Beverly Hills, California mansion, and a shopping spree. However, the plaintiffs argue that the contest was really a hoax designed to steal participants’ personal information and then sell it on the black market.
The complaint goes on to say that contestants have been flooded with “hundreds of sponsors,” some of whom have sent “possibly unpleasant and inappropriate information” in their attempts to reach the plaintiffs. Sources inside Curated Businesses have confirmed to TMZ that the gifts were given out to legitimate winners and that they had proof the whole event was legitimate.
Despite the participation of Kim’s renowned relatives in promoting the contest through social media, only Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are identified as defendants, along with Curated Businesses.
