A New Jersey court has ordered New Jersey Youth Club, Inc.
(NJYC), a Newark-based organization that claims to help underprivileged New Jersey youths, to temporarily cease seeking door-to-door solicitations and temporarily frozen its assets in connection with an action filed on behalf of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. The government claims the organization violated the Charitable Registration and Investigation Act and regulations, as well as the Consumer Fraud Act, by soliciting for contributions although it is not registered as a charitable organization in New Jersey, and by making misleading and untruthful statements while soliciting donations.
