The SBA 7(A) Program has a Franchise Fraud Problem

We’ve all heard about the SBA PPP Loan Fraud, but did you know that the SBA also has a problem with Franchisors behaving badly? In this short video we explore the high impacts of Franchise Fraud on the SBA 7(A) Loan Industry, Tax Payers, as well as Franchisees and touch on what discussions are being held amongst policy makers with respect to these issues.

Please let the SBA know what you think should happen when Franchisors take advantage of the Tax Payer’s generosity (and leave Franchisees holding the bag) with the SBA Program, and tell them to adopt Senator Catherine Cortez Masto’s Recommendations and cancel the Gaurantees on these loans!
