Receiving money back that was paid for a business requirement.
I lost thousands of dollars starting work for a company that does postings for Palace Cinemas. No withdrawals have been received. I am curious what could be done to receive funds back.

If you have paid money for a business requirement, such as starting work for a company that does postings for Palace Cinemas, and you haven't received any withdrawals or services as promised, you may consider taking the following steps: 1. Review Contract and Communications: Examine any written agreements, contracts, or communications you have with the company. Look for details regarding the services promised, payment terms, and any conditions related to refunds. 2. Contact the Company: Reach out to the company directly to inquire about the status of your payment and the services you were supposed to receive. Clearly express your concerns and request a resolution. 3. Document Everything: Keep a record of all communication with the company. This includes emails, messages, and any other written or verbal exchanges. Documentation may be important if legal action becomes necessary. 4. Check for Legal Remedies: Research consumer protection laws in your jurisdiction. Depending on your location, there may be regulations in place to protect consumers in cases of fraud, misrepresentation, or failure to deliver promised services. 5. Dispute Charge (if applicable): If you made the payment using a credit card, consider disputing the charge with your credit card company. Provide them with documentation and details of the situation. Credit card companies may offer chargeback options. 6. Consult with Legal Professionals: If communication with the company does not lead to a resolution, consult with a lawyer or legal professional. They can advise you on the best course of action based on the specifics of your situation and the relevant laws. 7. Consumer Protection Agencies: Report the issue to consumer protection agencies or regulatory bodies in your jurisdiction. They may be able to investigate and take action against companies engaging in unfair or deceptive practices. 8. Online Reviews and Social Media: Consider leaving a detailed review of your experience on relevant review platforms or social media. While this may not directly resolve the issue, it can warn others and sometimes prompt the company to address the problem. Remember, the steps you can take may vary based on the specific circumstances, the laws in your jurisdiction, and the terms outlined in any agreements. It's advisable to seek legal advice to determine the best course of action for your situation. Mohamed Aboshanab

Thank you Liam. I am not sure how to file something in a small claims court.

Hi Brian, It would depend on how you were engaged by the company on what options you have. It would most likely be as either a sub-contractor or an employee. As a sub-contractor you most likely will have to file a claim in a small claims court. If you are an employee, you may have some options with Fair Work. A lawyer would need further details to properly advise you though. Thanks, Liam
