The former president had been on trial since January alongside 10 other prominent figures -- including two former prime ministers -- for illicit enrichment, abuse of functions, influence-peddling and laundering.
He was convicted of illicit enrichment and laundering but cleared of the other charges.
Holy crap the government’s “business case” for moving the Ontario Science Centre is even worse than you might assume. Fraudulent in multiple ways.

"Donald #Trump spent years trying to get people to buy gold-plated condominiums, apartments gilded with veneers of luxury & class. He spent years trying to get lots of people to buy lots of things, really, with allegations of #fraud lingering around him & his company for much of that time.
But he was never more successful in parlaying #dishonesty into investment than since he embraced a career in national #politics in 2015."
"A liar, fraud, money launderer, indicted, hanger on-er is expelled from Congress, while a liar, fraud, money launderer, indicted, hanger on-er is leading the GOP race for President. This conundrum is not a conundrum at all. In fact, it’s a feature of today’s GOP."

Schaumburg lab accused of stealing millions in federal funds as part of COVID-19 test kit scheme
1984 is here. The implications of the Data Protection and Digital Information bill are horrifying, with zero accountability, supported in the Commons vote by Labour, another tick on their slate as wanna-be Tory. And only the impoverished suffer, those on state benefits of any kind, including pension, yet the wealthy, responsible for vastly greater fraud, are free from any scrutiny or monitoring.

Detroit-area man gets prison time for $40 million Ponzi scheme in New York
An ongoing hearing in #Halifax provincial court has been examining whether Quintin Sponagle, 59, should be sent to prison after failing to meet a 5 year deadline to pay the court-ordered fine related to his 2017 sentencing on one count of #fraud.
An American man, David Sybesma, testified Monday by video that he has known Sponagle for 15 years & that he holds "assets" for Sponagle that would cover the fine amount once they become "revalued."
"That's clearly disappointing that she has removed any reference to Piapot and her #Indigenous heritage," he said. "It seems she's rewriting ... her entire narrative."
He said he wishes that she would clear things up and that there's a simple way to do that: take a #DNAtest to determine whether she's related to the Piapots or the Santamarias.
"Appeals court reinstates gag order that barred Trump from maligning court staff in NY fraud trial"
"A New York appeals court Thursday reinstated a gag order that barred Donald Trump from commenting about court personnel after he continually disparaged a law clerk in his New York civil fraud trial.
Trial judge Arthur Engoron, who imposed the gag order, said he now planned to enforce it 'rigorously and vigorously.'”

Forwarding this on request: if you shop on eBay for Nokia N-Gage items, avoid buying from the seller "barto_it" - he is a scammer. He sold a dev mmc for a fixed price, but instead of shipping it, he forced the buyer to offer more money or cancel the sale. When the buyer did not agree, he just sent an empty package and kept the money.

Researchers have used the technology behind the #AI chatbot ChatGPT to create a fake clinical-trial data set to support an unverified scientific claim. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-023-03635-w
The ability of AI to fabricate convincing data adds to concern among researchers and journal editors about research integrity. “...the capacity to create fake but realistic data sets is a next level of worry...It will make it very easy for any researcher or group of researchers to create fake measurements on non-existent patients, fake answers to questionnaires or to generate a large data set on animal experiments.” #science #fraud

A friend of mine, just sent me this Gallup poll result that was published today about how many Americans have been impacted. Ken is co-founder of a new 501c3 organization to prevent scams by working private-public partnerships for a coordinated approach in the USA. He's working with government, financial services, etc. He started this after his mom was scammed out of lots of money.
And here's a link to the organization. https://www.stopscamsalliance.org/

"Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, government has recorded a higher level of fraud in the accounts we audit. This reflects the nature of the government’s response to the pandemic, including the rapid implementation of large new spending and loan programmes that came with an unusually high risk of fraud."

"What's the number where I can call you back, please?"
In most cases, the call will disconnect. That's because you're no longer an easy #scam target.
Use this approach with ANY call you suspect. If there's a real #fraud issue from a REAL company, there will be a real phone number you can call.

' “I was trying to help a tenant recently, and their landlord is an LLC that’s registered to a different LLC, and that is registered to a different LLC, which traces back to a company in Kansas City, whose whole purpose is to sign the building documents so you’re an untraceable owner,” said Gallagher. “And then those folks will claim they’re a small landlord to get certain kinds of government assistance.” '

#BBCNews - Ivanka #Trump testifies to New York #fraud trial she cannot recall loan details
#Ivanka was once a defendant in the suit, but an appeals court dismissed the claims against her as untimely, under the statute of limitations last June.
Despite multiple attempts to block her testimony, ultimately she was compelled to. The judge rejected her argument that the court lacked jurisdiction, finding the fact that she still does #business in #NY & used to live here was enough.
Wednesday, November 8, 2023 #NYAG #civil #fraud #TrumpTrial #Ivanka Trump is testifying. She had to follow her father's outrageous, combative & irreverent testimony on Monday, which designed more for the #CourtOfPublicOpinion & #RightWing #media than to convince #NY Supreme Court Justice Arthur #Engoron of anything.
#Trump called the judge a fraud, the NYAG "a political hack" & gave defenses to the AG's claims which were rejected as a matter of law by before trial.
Unlike her father & her brothers #EricTrump & #DonaldTrumpJr, #Ivanka is no longer a defendant in #NYAG #LetitiaJames’ lawsuit. James alleges that #Trump’s asset values were fraudulently pumped up for years on #financial statements that helped him get #loans & #insurance.
#Now it’s #Ivanka Trump’s turn to face questioning in the #civil #fraud #trial that is publicly probing into the family business. #Trump’s eldest daughter, who has been in his inner circle in both #business & #politics, is due on the stand Wed, after trying unsuccessfully to block her #testimony.

"Here was the former president under oath in a trial that threatens to unravel his empire of fraud. And it went about as you might expect: the belligerent vitriol, bravado, grievance, and insults; the filibustering, logic-rapes, tangents, boorishness, bullshit, and, of course, the lies. Trump seethed and exploded.
As always, he played the alpha victim."

"Trump was forced over and over again to concede points critical to New York Attorney General Letitia James’s financial fraud case. Much of the coverage is going to be about Trump’s attacks on Engoron, Wallace, and James. But what happened in court on Monday was that Trump kept right on losing."
~ Mark Sumner
#Trump: “It's election interference because you want to keep me [hostage] in this courtroom all day long, & we have a judge [who's a disgrace].”
In prior testimony, the NYAG's office called attn to covenants requiring that Trump maintain a certain net worth & liquidity to obtain favorable rates on loans.
#Trump: “I think this a disgrace for people moving in & out of New York.”
The banks he did business w/were happy, Trump said. “The only complainant is you.”
The NYAG has shown plenty of evidence of the that Trump sent fraudulent statements of financial condition to banks & insurers to get favorable terms.
#Kise defends what he describes as Trump's "brilliant" response.
#Trump: “I have a lot of money, a lot more money than you thought."
Trump goes on to say that since his financial statements have disclaimer clauses, telling parties to do their own due diligence, there can be no #fraud. He’s totally off topic.
"Those homes will sell for a tremendous amount of money, they're on the North Sea,"
(FYI These are *potential* homes, recall #SevenSprings)
Trump: “It's...like a painting, you can pretty much do what you want to do, the land is there”
Trump says even if the financial statements were off, it wouldn't matter.
"I'm worth billions of dollars more than the financial statements. So anything that would be a little bit off….
Trump says something like, that was then this is now.
Trump: “There's a man building a house down the road, and spending $1 billion...$1 billion, and it ain't Mar-a-Lago” (?)
#NYAG showed an interview of him saying that
"the Mar-a-Lago Club is a great success. It will forever be a club!"
Trump claimed he said it as "bravado," not "legal intent."
Asked if he got tax benefits from it being a club, Trump answered yes.
#Trump brings up the 2021 valuation, but says he wasn't really involved bc he was very busy as president (um, no he wasn’t)
Trump: “My threshold was China, Russia & keeping outrcountry safe”
#NYAG: "And just to refresh your recollection, you were not president in 2021?"
Trump: No I wasn't," Trump says, over-pronouncing the words.
Trump violated the order 2X (so far). Last Fri, the judge was forced to extend the gag order to Trump’s attys when they took over the abuse after trump’s had to stop.
