Los Angeles, CA asked in Consumer Law for New Jersey

Q: A film distribution company has hid sales numbers and stolen money. Does this fall under NJ Consumer Fraud Act?

A brief summary of my issues are as follows:

- I caught the company taking an un-contractual 50% off the top, nearly $10,000. I brought it up and they agreed to “give it back”. Which in turn went from his right pocket to his left because of the ridiculous “bill” he gave me.

- The math on the “sales and expense” report does not add up.

- Certain sale amounts on the report goes against previous info he sent me in the past. Alluding to the point that he is withholding sales numbers and he refuses to show me an accurate breakdown.

- Certain charges on the report are ridiculous. Some being things I never received and some being things that I personally did, but he is charging me for.
