eBay Removes Trump Taj Mahal Sign Amidst Law Enforcement Probe

A dispute over who the true owner of the “TRUMP” sign once attached to the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort has resulted in the cancellation of an online auction on eBay that raised $7500. 

"We have removed the listing pending the results of a law-enforcement investigation," Ryan Moore, senior manager of global corporate affairs & communications for eBay, said.

eBay could not verify the true owner as of Wednesday.

The seller described the item: “For decades, these Sanskrit-style ‘Trump’ signs greeted visitors at the entryway of Donald Trump’s iconic Trump Taj Mahal."

Workers last week started removing the Trump name from the property after the property was shuttered in October.

While the sign itself remained in good condition, the interior light bulbs failed to work.
