He tells you what to look out for, what questions to ask, and what agreements to make before signing a contract. And he offers a detailed anatomy of the most common types of fraud and abuse including Illusory Promises: The promise of training, guidance, and various forms of support; No Way Out: Contract provisions that can trap you for life, making it impossible for you to ever leave the system; Rigged for Failure: How some greedy franchisors oversaturate the market, and worse, how and why many franchisors often deliberately rig their franchises for failure; and Caveat Emptor: Why franchisees who are customers of licensors rather than their distributors are usually victims. But the picture isn't all dark. Robert Purvin also guides you to the best franchising opportunities now available, and tells you how to take full advantage of them.

FRANCHISING AND RACKETEERING: ONE WOMAN'S STORY OF A "LEGITIMATE" INDUSTRY'S ILLEGITIMACY is the true story of the author's brief foray into franchising. Anne signed a franchise agreement after spending over a year carefully exploring the industry. Within weeks, she realized she'd been defrauded and witnessed the franchisor committing a major unrelated crime. Walk with Anne on her harrowing adventure of investigation and discovery. Learn how franchisors use contract law to defraud and then absorb the personal assets of vulnerable United States citizens, hard-working immigrants and even veterans, sending their victims into bankruptcy after bankruptcy. Discover the complicity of the United States Small Business Administration and Federal Trade Commission. Consider corruption and the worldwide effects of special interests lobbying to own the United States Congress. Anne never opened a franchise location or even a business bank account. She immediately refused to be complicit to her franchisor's crimes and reported everything to her attorney general's office and the Federal Trade Commission. She lost everything to the racket but made friends out of several other bankrupted franchisees who, like Anne, had figured out the role governmental corruption played. No one should consider signing a franchise agreement without first reading this story. And everyone who cares about people, small business, and truly legitimate economic expansion will be interested to learn the ins and outs of "legitimate" franchise racketeering. PULL QUOTE 1 -- "Most Americans would be shocked to learn that the low prices of their pizzas and burgers are subsidized by the homes and life savings of small business owners called franchisees who live in their hometowns." PULL QUOTE 2 -- "Is filling strip malls with scams that can't survive through the sale of goods and services to the public really a higher priority than protecting families, children and the taxpayer -- and ultimately the economy?"
