Donald Trump Sued -- We Have the Dirt!

3/13/2009 8:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump is being sued by 69 not-so-proud owners of a phantom condo complex in Baja California. The buyers claim they plunked down a fortune, believing Trump was spearheading the project, but it was all a lie -- allegedly.

Donald Trump
We've told you about this before. The project was to be called Trump Ocean Resort in Baja, California -- it's on the edge of Tijuana. The buyers claim the brochures and the developers made it clear -- The Donald was at the center of the project. He wasn't, and the condo complex was never built.

The 69 owners put down a total of around $30 million, but got nothing but dirt.

They are suing Trump, claiming he let the developer use his name but never signed on to the project. The suit alleges fraud and other intentional wrongdoing. A number of other people and companies are also being sued.

We're told many more buyers will be joining the lawsuit.

Anyone can use anyone's name on a brochure. Did The Donald really agree to have his name involved?? I'm doubting this.

Well since Trump declared Bankruptcy again, He needs someone to pay for his Stupid Celebrity Apprentice.
You don't think he is going to pay for it and with it such a ratings loser NBC won't pay either.

I am afraid the victims are doomed . Without a signed contract blaming trump who knows how to play the game.
I still hope they find a glitch and nail the balding bastard trump.
