I’d like to warn everyone who has dealt with or are planning to deal with Hollywood Tans before that they are in big trouble. DO NOT think about it. DO NOT do it. DO NOT take their franchise. They’re scammers of the first order. They show wrong cash flow and profit projections and will ask you to do the same. I am Sam and I am a small business owner. I took a franchise from these guys. I suffered a lot.
I was forced to pay the franchise fee URGENTLY which was an amount of $40,000. I gave it immediately so that I can secure my franchise. They told me a lot of people are interested in it in my area. Post that, I was worried about securing funding and then I realized I am getting into some scam. They told me to show fake cash flow and business details. They said it’s okay since they have also done the same. This worried me a little.
They sent me detailed emails as to how I can carry out this scam and that they would help me to do so. I spoke to some friends and they said the kind of scam these guys are talking about is a big one and not to be a part of it. It is illegal and I can land up in prison for this. When I confronted these guys, they acted as if it’s not a big deal. They stopped replying to my emails and phone calls after that when I asked for my franchise fee back. They said they will give me a refund but that hasn’t happened till now. I am wondering if these guys are even legit. I have been trying the numbers and email IDs on their website http://www.hollywoodtans.com/
A lot of their other franchises are shutting down too. I have contacted other managers and owners of Hollywood Tans Franchise and most of them have gone through a similar process of scamming. A lot of others still have their money stuck and the company has stopped responding. I am going to file a lawsuit against these assholes and will make sure they burn in hell for the mental trauma and taking our money. This is really ridiculous. I have emails of all the communications I had with them. There are emails of them telling me how to show wrong cash flow and profits.
These guys will not be spared. Now they tell me that the franchise fee is non-refundable whereas they told me the opposite earlier when they “urgently” asked me to deposit that fee. My hard earned $40,000 is gone and I can’t let it happen. I will make sure I get it back and all the other franchise owners or could have been owners who dealt with these frauds also get it back. It is really pathetic that these assholes from Hollywood Tans think they can get away with scamming people over and over again. This is absolutely ridiculous.
