TMZ reports that the Bulgarian nonprofit charity Peace For You Peace For Me was scammed by promise of a Snoop Dogg concert that never happened. The concert was meant to raise money for children in war zones.

The group’s representative, Krasimir Dachev, filed a lawsuit against Brandon Allen and Rich America, claiming that Rich America (owned by Allen) claimed Snoop Dogg and Britney Spears would appear at the 2016 concert. They asked for $360,000 in fees to secure the date and begin negotiations. Allen then sent a video of someone he said was Snoop Dogg, who mentioned the concert. It was not Snoop, but the charity group believed it at the time.

Dachev added that they were worried it could be fraud when Rich America said that Snoop Dogg backed out and switched Spears with Natalie LaRose. They asked for their money back and were denied. The real Snoop Dogg had absolutely no involvement. Peace for You Peace for Me is suing for the $360,000 as well as over $2.5 million in lost expenses.
