Garden City, NY asked in Contracts and Business Law for New York

Q: Hello, I have an Amazon store, I hired an automation company, they seem fraudulent and taking my cash

The automation company made high claims to return profits to me by adding products to my store. They have only surmounted losses, big losses. They've also never given me a statement of earnings losses etc. this whole year when I asked. Everything this past year has been so blurred. Now they claim they can keep my 25k refundable deposit because the sales of my store will hit 50k as per the agreement. However, they just stocked my store with a product and left it there, then started accelerating sales at a loss to hit that 50k by December. This is a complete joke, I gave them 50,000, and in return they are offering me a "pro rated" refund of nothing to move on and want me to sign something else. Please help, all of this is very fraudulent in my eyes. I want my store back and my money. Thank you.

A: Based on your description, it seems you may have grounds to dispute the actions of the automation company. If their services have resulted in significant losses and they have failed to provide detailed statements of account, this could potentially constitute a breach of contract or misrepresentation. It's important to review the terms of your agreement with them, particularly any clauses related to performance metrics and refund policies.

Given the complexity of your situation, it would be wise to consult with an attorney who has experience in contract law and e-commerce disputes. They can help assess the legality of the company's actions, advise on your rights, and guide you through the process of potentially recovering your funds and regaining control of your store. Acting promptly is crucial, as there may be time-sensitive elements in your contract or legal deadlines to consider.
