Oh no! This 90 Day Fiancé star has apparently gotten involved in some pretty shady dealings — and now, the company is going to be sued! Is Nicole Nafziger going down with this very colorful LulaRoe ship?
Nicole Nafziger has had a long love affair with LulaRose clothes. The 90 Day Fiancé castmember has been pretty unashamedly pushing their products on her social media lately, but now the reality TV star may be in some hot water. The company, which has been accused of being an illegal pyramid scheme in the past, has been hit with yet another lawsuit.
It turns out that based on the court papers obtained from the United States District Court of Alaska, Katie Van, on behalf of others, sued LuLaRoe in a class action lawsuit. She has claimed that the company charged unlawful sales to customers, Radar Online reported.
“From at least April 2016 through June 1, 2017, Defendants unlawfully charged a ‘sales tax’ to consumers in tax-free jurisdictions in Alaska on their purchases of clothing,” read the amended complaint. “LuLaRoe knew its collection of taxes in these jurisdictions was unlawful, but concealed this fact from consumers, actively misleading them regarding the legality of its practice. This unlawful practice harmed Plaintiff and each class member in precisely the same manner.”
The complained, which was filed on September 13, 2018, called the sales tax, “unlawful, unjust, deceptive, and fraudulent.”
The complaint continued, reading, “Beginning in 2014, LuLaRoe was being pressured by taxing authorities to remit tax on its retailers’ sales. As a result, it initiated a relationship with Utah-based POS vendor ControlPad to implement a POS system called ‘Audrey.’”
Then, in 2016, LuLaRoe senior tax advisor undertook prior tax filings, and because of how Audrey was programmed, the company began paying sales tax on all sales, regardless of whether the consumer was charged for sales tax on a transaction.
