Amazon's Attempt to Bypass Consumer Credit Protection Laws & Avoid Filing Fees Challenged by Amazon Sellers' Law Firm, Rosenbaum Famularo, P.C.


LONG BEACH, N.Y., June 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Amazon's attempt to hold a person responsible for money that Amazon loaned to a corporation and to do so without paying appropriate filing fees is being fought by a law firm that focuses on "Amazon Sellers."  The request to dismiss can be accessed here

In Amazon Capital Services, Inc., v. Charon Intl. Trading, Inc., Amer. Arb. Assoc. # 01-18-002-0327:

  • Amazon approached a corporation to accept a loan. Amazon's loan had strings attached: the money had to be used by the corporation to sell more products on Amazon to make Amazon more money through fees Amazon charges on every sale on Amazon.com
  • Amazon admits it never requested a personal guarantee and solely loaned the money to the corporation
  • Amazon doesn't deny lack of compliance with Consumer Credit Protection Laws.




Federal Laws

The Federal Consumer Protection Act

Equal Credit Opportunity Act


Fair Debt Collection Act

Fair Credit Reporting Act


Truth in Lending Act





State Laws

Washington Consumer Protection Act1

Florida's Consumer Collection Practices Act2


After paying off more than half the debt, the corporation was unable to continue making Amazon's payments and stopped operating.  The corporation's UK parent company went into bankruptcy in the UK.3

Amazon is also trying to avoid filing fees for seeking "equitable relief" when in numerous other matters, Amazon argued that individuals and small businesses should pay higher fees.
