According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

…a Pittsburgh woman named Melissa Norris fell prey to a Ponzi schemer and convicted criminal who also just happened to be a “coach” at — you guessed it — Trump University.

Norris, who is a plaintiff in a lawsuit against Trump University, paid $17,000 to attend a seminar where she met a “coach” named Cary Beagley who was supposed to help her find investment opportunities, but who instead guided her money into a Ponzi scheme where she ended up losing $230,000.

As local Pittsburgh station WTAE reported, Norris says that she told her coach that she wanted to invest in local properties in Pittsburgh, but he insisted that she park her investment in properties in Spain via a company called Safevest.

The feds shut that company down, and Norris never saw her money again.
