A California nightclub is suing a company which falsely claimed to represent Snoop Dogg, after the nightclub lost $40,000.

AllHipHop.com reports that the suit, filed on October 22, claims One Blood/Red Eye Entertainment approached El Potrero Night Club and represented itself as a company negotiation concerts for the west coast star. $20,000 was wired to secure the rapper’s services.

Problems came to light when Los Angeles Hip Hop radio station Power 106 informed El Potrero that the dates they hoped to promote on the station were false. When questioned, the scamming promoters responded by saying they were going around Snoop’s managers to avoid additional fees.

On September 15, El Potrero wired an additional $20,000 to One Blood/Red Eye. On the date of the performance, representatives for the company informed the club that Snoop would not be performing.

El Potrero is seeking $100,000 for breach of contract, fees, expenses, and lost profits. Snoop is not named in the suit.
