Lawsuit filed against Erwin Santos and LS Filipino Merchandising by Golden Fortune Import and Export
Complaint for HUD-L-000750-20 submitted by SKIFF, GREGORY JOHN, SKIFF LAW FIRM LLC on behalf of GOLDEN FORTUNE IMPORT & EXPORT against LS FILIPINO MERCHANDISING, INC, ERWIN SANTOS
FilStop.com is the new name of the grocery store Philam Food after the wholesaler Phil-Am Trading filed a meritorious million-dollar lawsuit in federal court to prevent PhilamFood from again reneging on their legally binding agreements.
Filstop’s owner is Philam Merchandising’s Erwin Santos, whose family and company have been hit by numerous complaints and various lawsuits ranging in allegations from illegal food sales and improper food handling to personal injury and failure to pay law-mandated wages.
In December 2019, Filstop’s Clifton location, as well as its online store, closed permanently. Filstop’s original location in Jersey City also closed for good.
