In addition, "an internal review by Wells Fargo found that about 20,000 of those [car insurance] customers may have defaulted on their car loans and had their vehicles repossessed in part because of those unnecessary insurance costs."

"One of the men involved in the scheme was David Eduardo Helmut Murcia Guzmán, who a U.S. court subsequently sentenced to nine years in prison for laundering millions of dollars. Another was Alexandre Henrique Ventura Nogueira, who sold units at the Trump Ocean Club and later admitted that some of the people he did business with were members of the Russian mafia." A separate investigation by Reuters and NBC News "found Nogueira was responsible for between one-third and one-half of advance sales for the project. It also found he did business with a Colombian who was later convicted of money laundering and is now in detention in the United States; a Russian investor in the Trump project who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s for kidnap and threats to kill; and a Ukrainian investor who was arrested for alleged people-smuggling while working with Nogueira and later convicted by a Kiev court."

One of the key benefits of holding the event at a family owned property, according to Eric Trump, was that "the charity would be able to use the Trump course 'free of charge' and have the other costs donated." However, "foundation filings reviewed by Forbes show the Trump organization received more than $1.2 million from the charity for the annual one-day use of the course over the past decade. They also showed that $500,000 of the funds raised at the event over the years was re-donated to other charities, not put towards children’s cancer research." Costs for the one day event rose to as high as $322,000, all of which went to some part of the Trump Organization.  In addition, many of the other charities that received donations from the Eric Trump Foundation were connected to the Trump Organization.
