The callers are demanding money to clear up the matter, or threatening to revoke the individual’s license. Please be advised that the Division of Consumer Affairs will not contact licensees by telephone to discuss investigations or demand money.
Anyone receiving a telephone call from a person purporting to be any of the abovementioned individuals seeking money, should refuse the demand. We encourage you to report the call to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at

P.L. 2012, c. 71 (S612) created the Elevator, Escalator, and Moving Walkway Mechanics Licensing Board within the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. Licenses to engage in work as an elevator, escalator, and moving walkway contracting are not yet available. The law includes a "grandfathering" provision that authorizes the Board to issue a Elevator, Escalator, and Moving Walkway Mechanics license without examination under certain circumstances. To afford contractors the full 12 months within which to make application, the 12 month grandfathering period will begin when regulations adopted by the Board become effective.
