Complaint: Tom Lamers is working for Blimpie Subs and Salads in Columbus, Ohio and has successfully ripped off my sister and me. He sold us a Blimpie franchise already established in a strong neigborhood! He provided us with phony, made-up financial records in order to expedite its sale. We were told that it grossed in its bad months $2800 per month! He showed us receipts for food costs, utility bills, water bills, etc. He showed us deposit tickets for the past year and for some reason as soon as the paper work was signed and our loan check cashed by him and the Blimpie Corporation, the customers were no where to be found! In fact I believe 100% that every customer in there was staged whenever I went in. This man and the Blimpie Corporation do not return calls, letters, or emails! My money is gone and I have declared bankruptcy. He knew that this was my retirment plan and that my sister and I needed it. The support that Tom Lamers and the Blimpie corporation claim to give will NOT be there if you make the unfortunate decision to purchase a franchise from them. They are liars and cheats. I am losing my house over this deal. How can no customers come in after the paperwork is signed? NONE! The paperwork is made up, the title search was clear. Tom Lamers got to keep $50,000.00 of the sale and owns two more in Columbus! He is always unavailable. I heard that there were two other potential bidders on that franchise location if you are out there please respond to this email with whatever knowledge you have. Maxine Columbus, OhioU.S.A.
