Kevin O’ Leary and Kevin Harrington from ‘Shark Tank’ have been hit with a lawsuit.

The investors are being sued for fraud, and the plaintiffs claim that they were ‘lured’ to hire companies that allegedly were in the crowd-funding business to launch products.

According to court documents, “The companies turned out to be nothing less than facades designed to lure in unsuspecting victims, extract their money and then virtually disappear under the guise of delays, minimal to no performance, and no results.” Kevin O’Leary said, “It appears that someone has been using my name and likeness without my knowledge, permission, or consent. I’ve never heard of any of these purported companies and have never conducted business with any of the plaintiffs who filed this suit.

Obviously, I want to get to the bottom of it too, as my rights have been violated. We will make sure that the bad actors are held accountable.”
