How to go about suing a company that promised a salary after you quit your job?

Question Details: I applied for a job through Indeed.com to be a HR manager. I reached out to the owner to plead my case for the job. He called me a few days later to inform me that I had the job and promised me that he would pay me the amount that I was making at my previous job. I went through the proper procedures to leave my job after receiving my job offer sheet. After working for this company, supposedly hiring other employees who have quit or turned down jobs also, the owner never met nor followed through with any of his obligations as a company such as signing contracts or activating payroll. His "game" as a registered company in the state has caused my family and others financial turmoil as I and 7 others are now forced to search for other jobs to make ends meet and have to deal with our reputations taking a negative hit. A man like this deserves to be locked up. How do I go about seeking litigation against him, if possible?
