PrettyLittleThing, BooHoo, and NastyGal are online shopping platforms offering trendy fashion accessories. They might use reference prices during product advertising. However, three class action lawsuits have been filed against the fashion companies claiming that the reference prices weren’t regular or original. Class members pointed out that the website’s reference prices were inflated intentionally to dupe customers into thinking they have bagged a good deal. This caused customers into spending money that they wouldn’t have spent otherwise for purchasing items they wouldn’t have purchased otherwise and/or for spending more for items they would have if there wasn’t any deceptive marketing.
As per the plaintiffs in the three false sale class action lawsuits, this scam violated California consumer protection laws. The defendants have agreed to pay up to $4.75 million for resolving these charges despite not admitting to any wrongdoing. Attorneys’ fees, administrative costs, court costs, and other settlement-related expenses will be paid from the cash fund for the settlement.
