Everyone likes a good deal. And retailers know it. That’s why they love advertising their products at huge markdowns. You see it all the time.
These statements lead you to believe that you’re getting a great deal. But what if the original price of the item was inflated? That would make the discount, well, not so great.
Unfortunately for consumers, fake discounts have become the new norm. A rash of class actions have recently been filed across the country charging companies with inflating original prices. In many of these cases the retailers have caved and paid consumers millions of dollars.
These phantom markdown schemes take a variety of forms. Many retailers inflate the “original” or “list” prices far beyond the actual price for which they sold the product. Another practice is the perpetual sale: a retailer advertises that a product is “on sale,” but the discounted price is the regular price.
Most notorious are the outlet stores. These stores often sell inferior merchandise that has never seen the inside of a retail boutique. In many instances, the merchandise was made specifically for the outlet. But that doesn’t stop outlet stores from drawing comparisons to imaginary retail prices. The handbag you buy from an outlet store in Camarillo may have never appeared at a boutique—but the tag may suggest otherwise.
If you’ve been the victim of a fake discount, you may be entitled to
compensation. Contact the class action attorneys at CounselOne today.
