The Quaids: We're Victims of a Corpse Conspiracy

9/21/2010 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Randy and Evi Quaid claim they've been targeted in a diabolical scheme to steal property that rightfully belongs to them ... and they insist the mastermind is using a dead person to carry out the plot.

Long story short -- the Quaids tell TMZ someone forged the signature of a dead woman named Ronda Quaid on a legal document back in 1992 ... and wrongfully transferred ownership of their house to a third party.

As we previously reported, the Quaids were arrested this past weekend -- for allegedly squatting on the property, located in Santa Barbara.

But the Quaids believe they had every right to be on the property ... and insist they can provide proof of the "dead person" scheme.

Evi says they showed up to the house this past weekend to simply perform two decades worth of cleanup and maintenance ... and also to hang a self-portrait (pictured above) over the fireplace.

092010_randy_quaidWe ran into Randy in L.A. yesterday, where he told us he's ready to fight it out in court, saying, "If you don't stick up for what's yours, and defend what's yours ... what are you?"

Good question.

Too funny, this is EXACTLY what I said in a comment yesterday when you posted they would be stopping by TMZ. I said why bother listening to them because you know it was just going to be crazy talk and they would probably claim the original sale of the place was illegal or invalid or something and they were the rightful owners - Crazy people ARE sometimes predictable.

He's got a perfectly good reason...

"Where is Dennis? Why isnt he doing anything?"

Maybe he's not doing anything because his wife, Kimberly Buffington, is one of many being sued in the lawsuit.

Why should Dennis do anything? Clearly Randy and Avi can't keep themselves out of trouble if they tried. Why help them only to see them pull some other crap months later.

They are such liars about the place being in despair, I posted pictures of it and it was renovated by a high end designer the last time it was sold in 2007- including the grounds.

You can also cut tree's provided you have a permit.

Take their property back? Is that what he said? They want to take the property back because the owners aren't watering the roses? Are they completely insane?

They seem to have woken up one day, found out they don't have a house and decided they should go take one they sold back by just living in it.
