Elvis’ Graceland alleged auction fraud catches eyes of ‘interested’ FBI officials: reports

They can’t go on with suspicious minds.

The auction fraud scandal surrounding Elvis Presley’s iconic Graceland mansion has caught the attention of “interested” FBI officials, according to a report.

FBI agents have contacted Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough’s camp about conducting a possible criminal probe, TMZ reports.

The outlet added that the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has also been contacted, and those involved believe they know who was behind the fraudulent auction.

The Post has reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for comment.

A Memphis judge halted a planned foreclosure sale of the late crooner’s iconic Graceland home on Wednesday, fearing possible forgery over the legal documents.

Chancellor JoeDae Jenkins ruled the historic Tennessee property should stay in the hands of the Presley family after questioning the documents that ordered them to hand it over to an investment company.

Earlier this week, Naussany Investments and Private Lending LLC claimed the right to auction off Graceland — voted the most popular museum in America in 2023.

They set a public auction for Thursday to sell the property to the “highest and best bidder for cash,” per the foreclosure notice.

The company’s claim to the property states it had loaned $3.8 million to Lisa Marie Presley — Elvis’ only daughter — and she had offered Graceland as collateral before her death in Jan. 2023.

A lawsuit filed Monday by Lisa Marie’s eldest daughter and heir, Riley Keough, 34, stated the documents were a fraud, her mother’s signature on them was forged and the company itself was a “false entity” set up to defraud the estate.

A source told The Post that Keough was “traumatized” amid the scandal and “never thought that a historic piece of property could even be considered to go into the hands of any random stranger.”

The company will now have to prove their claims in court.

Graceland has been a fixture in Memphis since Elvis bought the estate in 1957 for $102,500, the same year he released the hits “Blue Christmas” and “All Shook Up.”

Spanning 14 acres, the estate attracts a whopping 500,000 visitors annually.

Lisa Marie inherited it after Elvis’ death in 1977, and it opened to the public as a museum in 1982.

After her death in January 2023, Riley became the heir.
