According to the media outlet TMZ, it has been made public that the socialite and businesswoman Kim Karashian and her ex-brother-in-law Scott Disick are being sued for around 40 million dollars for promoting prizes through Instagram, which consisted of various luxurious items and that are allegedly part of a fake lottery scam.
Everything seems to indicate that the participants were promised as a prize the opportunity to win plane tickets to travel in first class to Los Angeles, a stay in Beverly Hills for three nights and even 100 thousand dollars.
These types of contests are organized by the company Curated Businesses and there are sources that assure that there have been legitimate winners. Also, they say they have documentation that can prove it. However, the main affected are those who did not win, who claim in the lawsuit that the socialite, Disick and the company only organize the contests to sell their personal information to advertisers, since they have been invaded by hundreds of them, some of the which request offensive and unwanted content.
According to TMZ, the main organizer of the giveaways is Scott Disick and he would have convinced other celebrities of the Kardashian-Jenner family to promote them. However, only he and Kim are named in the lawsuit. In addition, in the complaint, the plaintiffs request 20 million dollars as compensation for damages.
It is worth mentioning that said raffle was held in 2020 and both entrepreneurs collaborated with Curated Businesses, a company based in Australia, while on its website it explains how the winner selection process works and has a list of winners of the campaigns or raffles carried out from 2019 to the present year. So far, neither Kardashian nor Disick have spoken about it.
