Shasta County D.A. Files Lawsuit Against Overstock.com
A Northstate shopper's complaint against internet retailer Overstock.com has led to a $15 million lawsuit filed by Shasta County District Attorney in Alameda County Wednesday.
The lawsuit filed by Shasta County District Attorney Jerry Benito and District Attorneys from six other California counties accuses Overstock.com of intentionally misleading online customers and seeks an injunction against the retailer.
The lawsuit claims Overstock "routinely and systematically" made untrue and misleading claims about the prices of its products.
According to the Shasta County shopper cited in the lawsuit, Overstock had a patio set advertised for $449.00 with a "List Price" of $999.99. The purchase arrived with a WalMart sticker showing the price to be $247.00. The shopper alerted the D.A.'s Office and an investigation was launched.
