In May 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Nastygal.com for allegedly deceptively advertising sales on clothing, accessories, and other items by comparing discounts off of artificially inflated reference prices to make consumers believe they are getting a significant discount.

Nastygal.com USA Inc. and Boohoo Group PLC
, Case No. 20-cv-4659, C.D. Cal.)
