I am the managing director of a small start-up manufacturing company, trying to create jobs here in the US and doing my part in rebuilding the US economy. It is really too bad that I did not see these reports late last year when we sold him 3 construction rental machines valued at about $10K. Once shipped we never heard another word from him and we were told by our outside sales rep firm that he was being evicted from the 14B World Fair Somerset location, where we had shipped all three machines. We sent

him to collections, after several failed attempts to get a hold of him after his account went delinquent, but the collection agency I work with told me they had already dealt with Jewel before and said that we were going to have to write off the debt unless we had a personal guarantee from Jewel. Apparently he is able to

sheild himself from personal financial responsibility by using business structures like LLCs. I will be contacting the local police department to file a complaint and explore other options. Based on our experience working with Jewel and Cal Development, I would not recommend doing business with this company unless you receive payment in advance - and make sure the check clears.

Jewell Anderson Charged With Theft

AUTHOR: Screwed By JJ - (USA)

A Plainfield man has been charged with second-degree theft and eight counts of third-degree theft.

Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey D. Soriano and Somerset County Prosecutors Office Chief of Detectives Stuart Buckman announced the May 30 arrest of Jewell Anderson, 27, of Myrtle Avenue.

Prosecutor Soriano states that in March of 2012, the Somerset County Prosecutors Office was contacted by Plainfield Police Department and an investigation was initiated regarding defendant Anderson.

The investigation was conducted by detectives assigned to the Somerset County Prosecutors Office Special Investigation Unit revealed that defendant Anderson had contracted with the Providian Staffing Agency in Plainfield in order to provide payroll services to companies that Anderson owns and operates in Somerset County.

Providian additionally agreed to provide Anderson with temporary employees for his businesses. In furtherance of its payroll services, Providian agreed that it would provide payroll checks to Andersons employees based upon time sheets that Anderson submitted delineating the hours that each employee worked. In return, Anderson agreed to reimburse Providian for the checks that were issued to his employees.

Soriano said, Providian issued checks to Andersons employees and provided services to him totaling over $180,000. Anderson eventually submitted several checks to Providian which were returned due to insufficient funds or being drawn on a closed account. Anderson submitted eight replacement checks to Providian totaling over $120,000, which were all also returned due to insufficient funds in Andersons account or being drawn on a closed account, according to the prosecutor.

In addition, Anderson also provided Providian with time sheets for employees who were no longer employed through Andersons companies, he said.

The investigation further revealed that defendant Anderson himself cashed checks that were issued to employees working for him without their permission, Soriano said.

On May 30 a Superior Court search warrant was obtained for Andersons business location on Pierce Street in Somerset. The defendant was subsequently arrested and lodged in the Somerset County Jail with bail set at $75,000, cash only.
