“This is more than a simple breach-of-contract action,” the complaint reads. “This case is also about a sophisticated fraudulent scheme Defendants concocted and effectuated to defraud Wayfair.”

The case is against suppliers Rosevera Corp., Mulhouse Furniture Corp. and Fully Wind Co. Ltd., plus former president and CEO of Rosevera and vice president of Fully Wind Ping Hua “Eric” Hsu and Mulhouse employee Tzu Ju “Jennifer” Huang.

The complaint identifies both Rosevera and Mulhouse as based in California, and Hsu and Huang as California residents. Fully Wind is based in Hong Kong.
