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.

It seems like Trump is getting his for once! All those years of saying "You're Fired." Now people can say to him, "You're Screwed."

He has absolutely no scruples and has again filed bankrupcy! Possibly, all of these people have a way to recover the monies out of which he screwed but most likely the unethical and creepy fat cat has made certain they won't get a dime. Anything that is his "brand" should be boycotted and, especially, "The Apprentice".
