Thousands of Washington residents lost money selling clothing for LuLaRoe, according to Attorney General Bob Ferguson. LuLaRoe replied that the claims were unfounded.
The US Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against the California-based clothing company LuLaRoe, which is acting against the company, a pyramid scheme. Lawyer Bob Ferguson has filed a lawsuit in King County Superior Court in a prepared statement on Friday stating that thousands of Washington citizens have lost money selling clothing for LuLaRoe.
In an e-mail, a LuLaRoe spokesman said that the claims in the lawsuit are wholly unfounded and that the company will vigorously act against them. "We are passionate about the strength of the LuLaRoe brand, consumer demand for new apparel designs and enhancements, and the passion of tens of thousands of independent fashion retailers across America," wrote the company spokesperson, who did not want to mention a name in the email.
Ferguson said the company misrepresented the company and violated the provisions of the United States Consumer Protection Act.
"LuLaRoe has brought consumers misleading claims for high profits and reimbursements to buy their pyramid program unsold goods," Ferguson said in a prepared statement. "Instead, many Washingtoners lost money and were left behind with countless unsold goods and broken promises from LuLaRoe. It is time to call LuLaRoe to account for the deception.
