Controversy over Trump University

You've heard all the claims, and the denials by The Donald. Now we hear from a self proclaimed 'victim' directly, a Southern California woman who says the Trump University operation cheated her out of almost $2000 dollars. 

It's not that the money will make or break her, though it's a significant sum and  she'd like it back, it's that she felt that her trust in Trump was violated, and that because he's a 'scam artist' he certainly shouldn't be President. Her story, basically, and she didn't want to be identified because she fears Trump will sue her (he's done that with others) is this. 

Years back she signed up for a business and leadership seminar, gave her credit card info, and received some materials to review. She went over everything, ultimately thought it all flimsy and unimpressive, and decided to cancel. 

She said it was within 3 days, per the contract. Years later, she's still waiting. She said what's called the "Trump Institute " would credit her account, then the next month charge it again. She claims they told her Trump Institute wasn't  affiliated with Trump University, she says ''it was always an excuse. "

As for Trump? "I figured a man with that much money wasn't in the business of scamming people and that's what this company did.......He says trust me i'll be a great President, well I don't believe that. 

Donald Trump is in it for the bucks..."  Trump, via YouTube and via debates and via public appearances, has called all the complaints, the lawsuits, a ''minor civil matter'' that he could've settled easily, but he doesn't settle.  Like many things with Trump , some people love him, some, well something less than that.
