Billy McFarland and Ja Rule defrauded the chumps who plunked down thousands of dollars for the Fyre Festival in the Bahamas, a festival that more resembled "The Hunger Games" or "The Lord of the Flies" than Coachella ... at least that's the take in a new class action lawsuit.
A concertgoer, who's trying to set up a $100 million class action with others, calls the festival a get-rich-quick scam, saying Billy and Ja Rule knew months before the event it was in crash-and-burn mode.
The suit, filed by Mark Geragos, claims Billy and Ja Rule outright lied about the festival's accommodations and safety. It claims people put down between $1,200 and $100,000 a ticket for the event, which left most people who showed up stranded on the island.
