N.J. Consumers and Their Fight With Sirius XM Radio

N.J. Consumers and Their Fight With Sirius XM Radio
BY JEFF LAMM
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
NEWARK – New Jersey consumers who believe they are entitled to restitution under a recent multi-state settlement with Sirius XM Radio Inc., must file their complaints with the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs by May 3.

The settlement, announced in December 2014, resolves allegations that the satellite radio company violated consumer protection laws through a variety of misleading, unfair, and deceptive business practices. According to consumer complaints, these included failure to honor contract cancellation requests, the automatic renewal of contracts without consumers’ consent, and the charging of unauthorized fees, among other things. Sirius has agreed to pay a total of $3.8 million to the participating states, including $114,982 to New Jersey, and to provide restitution to eligible customers.

“Today we are issuing an important reminder to New Jersey consumers: If you believe you were affected by Sirius Radio’s alleged unfair practices, and have not yet filed a complaint with the Division of Consumer Affairs, you should contact the Division as soon as possible. The deadline for those seeking restitution is May 3rd,” Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman said.

Affected consumers can contact the Division of Consumer Affairs by calling 800-242-5846 (toll-free within New Jersey) or 973-504-6200. Consumers also can file complaints electronically through the Division’s newly redesigned website, www.NJConsumerAffairs.gov.
