CNBC's The Profit host Marcus Lemonis hit with a $30-million fraud-claim lawsuit

  • The trustees of a Pennsylvania design company whose founders were on the show in 2015 are accusing NBC Universal, production company Machete and the retailer Camping World, which is partly owned by Lemonis, of fraud and breach of contract. “NBCUniversal and, subsequently Machete, created a mob-style scam that disparaged, denigrated, and falsely portrayed the businesses they promised to help, like Precise Graphix,” the trustee said in a lawsuit. In a statement, Lemonis called the allegations baseless: “I will not continue to allow people to create their own narrative based on a false reality. I work hard for and respect money and take any attempt to unethically extract it from me very seriously.”
