Randy Quaid -- My Bank Stole My Fortune

8/23/2010 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Randy Quaid claims his most trusted financial advisors -- along with his bank -- conspired in a diabolical plot to steal his multi-million dollar fortune ... this according to a new lawsuit.

0823_randy_quiad_Ex_getty
Acting as his own attorney, Quaid filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court today, claiming he's lost more than $10 million in "loans I did not need or want" after his advisors forged his signature on key financial documents.

Long story short -- Quaid claims the advisors made fraudulent real estate loans with the help of City National Bank ... which has led to huge financial losses and big trouble with the I.R.S.

Quaid also claims his financial people stole several paychecks from his work on high profile Hollywood projects -- specifically an estimated $600,000 in royalty checks for his role in "Brokeback Mountain."

In the suit, Quaid does not specify how much he wants from the advisors and the bank -- but he implies that the number is astronomical.

He should compare notes with the woman on trial for attacking Leonardo DiCaprio. It would make for quite a more wide-ranging conspiracy theory.

Everyone blames the "financial advisor(s)" Quaid and his wife have other charges pending.

Nicholas Cage, Wesley Snipes. Tax related. Cage plays dumb, he has no idea as he is buying everything in site. Snipes plays dumb, Snipe's goes to Africa, says he's making a movie to avoid the IRS and back taxes owed. C'mon.

Proove you were ripped off. Proove fraud. IRS doesn't think so.

This was years. Pay your taxes just like everyone else.

Wow look more Morons on TMZ like BallaBlocka...

Randy by far is the bread winner of the Quaids.. Just his checks from Sat Night Live movies makes him a nice piece of change. This guy is down to earth and doesn't buy 900k cars or houses like others.

If he can prove the loans were forged then he will win. He acts like a dummy but he isn't. He knows the risks of doing it himself and really it isn't that hard. I have done it a few times and I won against a lawyer.

City National is a Beverly Hills Bank that handles monies for numerous stars and producers, writers, production staff, etc. throughout the movie industry. I've seen no lawsuits filed by others against them for sneaking off with the monies. So Randy, as great an actor as you are, you will have a tough time convincing a jury that you were ripped off by City National. Now ripped off by Aliens, maybe!

Randy, if this is a legit concern for you PLEASE get an attorney. If you represent yourself the only thing you will get is more bad publicity. Get back on track, you do have a wonderful talent.

Is he representing himself because:
1. He can't afford a lawyer.
2. He can't find one who will take the case.
3. He is a fool.
4. All of the above.
