USAMDT Joe Strom Franchise Warning 2015
According to a recent complaint from an anonymous former or current franchisee, after it came out that the Item 19 Financial Performance Information provided in USAMDT’s Franchise Disclosure Document was sketchier than a Willie Nelson *** test, Joe Strom offered remaining USAMDT franchisees a reduction in royalties in exchange for their signing of a legal release. Here’s the message we received, along with an excerpt from the legal release (in italics): Looks like Joe Strom and the boys at USA Mobile Drug Testing are at it again. . UDSAMDT is embroiled in yet another franchise dispute. Can’t these guys get along with anyone? I guess not because Joe’s methodology is to hide behind an attorney for everything. Put out fraudulent financials in the franchise disclosure document and get caught? . Call a lawyer and try to get everyone to sign releases that basically say we know you screwed us but it’s OK. . People don’t ask for forgiveness (or releases) unless they have done something wrong. In the case of USAMDT, it must be something horribly wrong.……….just look below. . … completely, irrevocably, and absolutely release and forever discharge, without limitation or reservation, Franchisor and its past, present, and future direct or indirect parent organizations, subsidiaries, divisions, affiliated entities and their owners, partners, officers, directors, trustees, administrators, fiduciaries, employment benefit plans and/or pension plans or funds, executors, attorneys, employees, insurers, reinsurers, and/or agents and their successors and assigns, individually and in their official capacities (collectively, the “Franchisor Parties”), from all claims, liabilities, allegations, demands, obligations, actions, suits, causes of action, debts, costs, expenses, and controversies, whether class, individual, or otherwise in nature, whenever and wherever incurred, whether known or unknown, whether vested or contingent, and from all liabilities of any nature whatsoever, including, without limitation, costs, expenses, penalties, and attorneys’ and accountants’ fees and costs, asserted or un-asserted, in law or in equity, that the Franchisee Parties or any of them, whether directly, representatively, derivatively, or in any other capacity, ever had or now have, or now owns or holds, or has at any time heretofore owned or held, or may at any time own or hold, against any of the Franchisor Parties, arising prior to and including the effective date, whether arising out of, or relating to, the Franchise Agreement, the Additional Agreements, or otherwise. No waiver, release, term or condition contained in this Amendment shall be construed to terminate, alter or otherwise change any provision of the Franchise Agreement, and said Franchise Agreement shall remain in effect.

USA Mobile Drug Testing Article in Franchise New Times
The March 2013 Franchise New Times has published an article written by Julie Bennett regarding USA Mobile Drug Testing "Pass/Fail". The article's claims affirms the pissed consumer's prior complaints. The article states the following: A total of 52 franchisees signed on under the old system and 16 of them, including the eight represented by Herman, have left. David Bell, USA Mobile’s vice president of marketing since last June, said he was authorized to speak for the company. “Joe was new in franchising, so he relied heavily on Rhino7’s advice and some franchisee complaints are valid,” Bell said.

USA Mobile Drug Testing - A FAILED Franchise
The concept of the USA Mobile Drug Testing franchise was 100% mobile drug testing and collection, needing no brick and mortar building to have a successful business. When you come to the understanding that this is a mature market, with companies drug testing employees for over 22 years, this franchise has been oversold and continues to underdeliver. The prices USAMDT franchisor claims you can get for drug testing is unrealistic in today's saturated market and their stated earnings are pipe dreams. From the first Financial Disclosure until now , the projections are based on exaggerated and deceptive financials starting with a model that was NEVER reflective of what this company purports to sell. Only suckers should apply!
USA Mobile Drug Testing Franchises floundering
It has been documented that seventeen (17) franchisees have left USA Mobile Drug Testing in its short history leaving them with approximately 36 franchisees in the network and many of the remaining USA Mobile Drug Testing franchisees are contemplating ceasing operations with significant financial losses or joining the group that is taking legal action for deception and fraud against USAMDT and its founder (flounder) Joe Strom. To date, not a single franchisee has been able to support themselves through this business model. With the number of franchisees still in the network struggling to stay afloat this franchise is like the Titanic, it is going down.
Buyer Beware! False advertising
It is hard to believe that USA Mobile Drug testing would even consider putting such a fraudulent claim out there in Franchise Buzz stating that stating that they are selling franchises so quickly. USA Mobile Drug testing currently has approximately 36 franchises. Last year 13 franchisees left the network and starting in January 2 other franchisees have departed and there more getting ready to depart. Considering that the major franchise sales teams have taken USA Mobile Drug Testing off their list of franchises to buy, the USAMDT executive team of six in 2012 has dwindled to 3 and the team of 3 includes a compliance officer who also has his own consulting firm that sells independent of USAMDT drug and alcohol testing businesses, one has to wonder when this false advertising will stop!
Franchise Frauds People Out Of Money!!
USA Mobile Drug Testing LLC frauds people out of their money and continues to squeeze more as they struggle to stay in business. USAMDT started selling franchises in early 2009, average investment of $90, 000. They use an outside franchise business development company to sell them but this isn't disclosed. The sales people are introduced as employees of USAMDT. The financial representation listed in the FDD is so grossly inflated and doesn't come even close to what the 1st and 2nd year business owner will make in revenues. Plus, the numbers used are said to be a franchise, which is untrue, it's a company unrelated to the franchise, listed as a franchise, won't talk to the franchisees, etc. Many of us really did our due diligence before buying into this franchise but many things are kept from you until you're in the system. Things like NOBODY on staff has any previous experience in this industry and the one person that does is an outside consultant that has helped others get into the business outside of the franchise. The support is non-existant, reports are regularly incorrect...which is really bad! These are drug test results that affect a person's life! To get personal, the CEO, Joseph Strom, is a narcissistic bully that uses a command and control management style. He doesn't seem to get that franchisees are NOT employees. He believes he can motivate people with promises and rhetoric but when it doesn't go his way, then he tears franchisees down and his revenge is divide and conquer. 90% of his promises are empty, zero follow through and unable to hold a business conversation without turning it into a vicious personal attack. He's cut tons of side deals with various franchisees that end up getting a free ride while many are stuck making up the shortfall. BTW, this is a great industry and can be learned and launched, without any franchise, for a fraction of the cost. BUYER BEWARE! Unless you have a huge family trust fund and money is no object, do not invest in this franchise and don't invest in Joe Strom.
