Well now. For those of you whom have sent inquiries.Thank you. I have been cconducting  some various activities and working on refining my Business 101 package. Yes as is said. That’s Business.

And for those if you whom wish I would climb back under a rock…I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!
Hello Shari thieving Nott and today we’re gonna speak about the Offender Member NVMS. Seems that both of these companies have decided to enrich themselves by cheating labor out if monies. How can I say that? That’s Business.
However, before we speak about That’s Business as usual of Thieving Offender Members of the National Association of Management For Stealing, lets talk about the new Aspen Grove Solutions development for bilking the industry’s Emplactors in their quest for making everyone a fricken employee. If the entire industry does not say no to this development then you are very stupid or you’re lying to yourself about your function and position in the PPI. … No if and or buts. That’s Business.

First NAMES violates all the 501c3 rules when they demand you take and pass their education courses that they stole from Rob Preston over at Fury Learning then to add insult to injury they demand you take the program to become “certified”. Let Eric tell it, That’s Business.
Ladies and Gentlemen…they can not certify you because they are not accredited. This means Aspen Grove CANNOT CERTIFY you either, they are not an education provider, as matter  of fact I bet they really are not qualified to conduct ethical background investigations. They are in a foreign country, Ireland I believe. In addition they have forged documents on record with four different states. But that’s none if my business. That’s Business.
However…none of this may mean squat to the bean counters at the Too Big Too Fail table at this years Fraud Fest after the Courts Decision yesterday in the state of Washington. As I reported on America Matters AM News this morning, via foreclosurepedia.org Washington ruled that everything, all work inspections, lawn cuts, lick changes, winterizations etc. being done on the “Pre-foreclosure” in the Property Preservation Industry is in fact illegal. This is something myself and my colleague have been saying for 5 years now. While I have not been pinpoint accurate as Foreclourepedia has been over the years, I never-the-less have stated over and over that everyone in PPI is an employee without benefits.
Keep that in mind as you scratch your head about the independent contractor issue as Aspen Grove and the criminal supervisor of NAMES, Eric ‘the crime boss” Miller, attempts to force everyone to take their stolen education module. Keep this in mind as they tell you it’s for the betterment of the industry. Keep this in mind when they tell you it’s for the “preferred insurance” providers. Keep this in mind as we start watching the National Association if Management For Stealing, Offender Members not pay you and try to charge you $50,000 dollars because you went to an attorney and they claim you violated your contract. That would be the illegal contract you signed in the Offender Member’s instance to receive work orders. That’s Business of an illegal nature.
Yes, keep all that in mind as they keep you in the dark on business matters. I have long stated I can train a dog to pick crap up and put it in the truck…I can train a monkey to clean the ceiling fans…but I can not teach them to perform a break even analysis or a break even point analysis on bulk services. That’s Business functions they do not want you to understand.

THAT’S BUSINESS…Are you Business Savvy??????

I would like to ask all you Mom & Pop companies a few questions before I get out of here today.
Are you struggling to stay within local rules, laws, and regulations and make the PPI numbers work?
Do you truly understand the intricacies if business?
Do you know how to find out if you will lose money on a service before you accept the work order?
Would you like too?
On this site you will find a video that explains and demonstrates break even point. If you’d like more Business 101 type information. My gift to Labor in the PPI this month of August….free Business 101 consultation….contact me today and set up an appointment…and dint forget FAST.
As I field calls and emails on the actions of the offender members I’ll say it again, if you’re owed money, and said amounts are past due, lien the property. Period…least many of you forget I started writing AFTER our company was blacked-balled. That happened because one of  the bigger Offender Members tried to screw us on our money and I placed a lien on 42 properties we we’re owed money on.
That’s Business
And that’s my message for labor today.
Until Next Time
Happy Gardening

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series PPI Watch List
Victor Aldrey
Victor Aldrey

This past week I wrote about National Field Network (NFN), based on scuttlebutt and the hunch the company may be insolvent, placed them for a second time on the PPI Watch List. This was predicated by several inquiries from folks looking for avenues to collect monies owed to them. This week is a little different, no; NFN is not coming off the PPI Watch List. As a matter of fact if you are owed especially if you have received “Hush Up” payment on what you’re owed. Reports are coming in of people owed $27k and only after complaining did they receive $15k. NO NFN is definitely remaining on the PPI Watch List.

This is not a good sign. In addition I have received information from sources speaking on the condition of anonymity, that the internal C-Level employees at NFN have grave concerns their payroll is in peril. I’ll be nice…Here’s the reality, if C-Level employees have payroll concerns, you as a Contractor, should also have brave concerns about getting paid. When we developed the PPI Watch List no one had the debt that NFN is currently reported to have with Labor.

With rumors circulating in the FIVE Million Dollar range…whether true or not…and this is just me. I would be lining the ducks up and placing a lien on any services that have gone past the payment date in you contracts. The PPI Watch List was designed as a precursor to the obituary that is eventually written about companies when the file bankruptcy. Make no mistake folks that is the Road Shari Nott is going down.

This Morning I received an email from a source over on Face Book;

Aaron,

After I read your article last week I asked if this was the same company as the logo was the same. Here is their response and mine. I posted the question on the NFN Face Book page and I received this response a couple days later via a private message.


National Field Network is responding to your activity on the page

NAME REDACTED, If you are having issues with outstanding payment, please contact Maggie Sinanan at 732-276-5563 and we’ll make sure to address your concerns. If you do not receive a response within 24 hours, please ask to speak to the COO. Best regards, NFN

This was my response,

I’m not currently owed anything by your company…merely asking a question. You’re company is on the verge of insolvency for the second time within five years what type of upper management do you have??? You routinely ask people to work for free and have established a system for fraud throughout the industry…If your company is stand up then conduct and interview with Aladay LLC or Forclosurepedia. Sherri refuses to do so or allow anyone else to talk publicly. What are you hiding? Reports are your company is almost 5 million in the rears and people are being advised to place liens on Contractors are being advised to lien properties so they can collect what you owe. Did you receive a check last week? Contractors are not according to reports.

Interesting, so if you are owed money you know whom to contact at NFN, give Maggie a call she’ll get you squared away (QUACK!!!)…also that is a good question Shari Nott, why not do an interview? Perhaps Shari knows it would be futile and reminiscent of when Robert at SEAS was begging for more time to continue stealing from Labor.

PPI Watch List Honorary Inductee. EDNAMFS For knowingly Allows members to skirt business laws.
PPI Watch List Honorary Inductee. EDNAMFS For knowingly Allows members to skirt business laws.

Now this is not the first time NFN has had issues paying people. If memory serves me correctly the name Buczek comes to mind. One of the biggest issues in the PPI is that of payroll by members of the National Association of Mortgage Filed Services… Management For Stealing…and for whatever reasons this failed business model of being a second tier National Subbing Company, (NSC) continues to thrive. Obviously Eric Miller has to maintain some sort of membership to continue receiving his salary of one hundred twenty thousand plus dollars a year. This is a system that is strife with crime on a level that has made Eric Miller parallel to Crime Boss Tony Soprano. Difference being, Miller is actually conspiring, and by overseeing crime daily is an accessory to the fact, Tony was a character played by an actor.

This is far worse than CWIS who has been awarded $180.9 MILLION dollars in HUD contracts since 2004 and being ordered by HUD to pay the vendors they were paid on…Which brings me to this…

YOU GET PAID WHEN WE GET PAID

One of the most recent contracts I have reviewed is one out of Southern California with this clause. I was rather blown away when I discovered the contract belonged to NRES. Normally I would be sounding alarms when I read something like that in a contract. However, in this particular case the “man behind the curtain” if you will, has always been straight forward with Labor and while a bitch or two has come in over the past three years, nothing that would warrant entry into the PPI Watch List. No NRES has always been for the most part square with Labor. Keeping in mind, **it happens, you’re going to get a bitch in business now and then. Still the fact is that NRES has not cheated people or Labor so while I cannot endorse the contract because of certain language there is absolutely no reason to believe that NRES will not pay you when they get paid. Sono entry on the PPI Watch List, unlike NFN, CWIS, and the rest of the lot over at the Management For Stealing office.

Now I touched base with Brian Mingham over at NRES. Brian pointed out something that all the good Contractors have to suffer for. CRAPPY Craigs List hacks!!!! I informed Brian that I had received several inquiries to the contract and let him know I would have to write something. Unlike Shari Nott, Brian has no issue speaking in the media about industry issues that affect his company.

It is the contract. We pay people weekly, we reserve the right to pay when we get paid. If there is an issue, quality, construction, anything we reserve the right to pay. The issue is labor is never on the hook for doing it wrong, I’m getting charge backs so we have to work together to make sure the industry improves the quality, photos, description, do asset management and not a work order…

Now I have to say, and many of you are going to fall out of your chair reading this, however, I kinda have to side with management on this issue of shoddy workmanship. Brian went further stating,

We had to get a much stiffer contract after all the litigation that comes in from owners of PFC homes, clients pushing it down and labor not doing a good job. I know it is rough, our agreements are as bad and the charge backs kill us so all of good people pay for it. I’m not trying to screw anyone, any company, I’m trying to protect our brand, do the right thing, pay contractors but go after the bad ones and the only way to do it is with a contract that people acknowledge, sign and live with. I’m happy to connect any time and discuss.

The Scenario for the PPI Watch List

Now many of you know that for years I have screamed at that scenario and the fact that it an open ended scenario to create graft and theft, theft by deception if you will. However, in this particular case Mr. Mingham does not have a track record of not paying Labor, furthermore I do not believe for one split second that NRES is insolvent.

However, allow me to expand on something Mr. Mingham has brought up. Something that the National Order Mills refuse to address is the labor factor in the equation. As an employer I have the same issue finding quality employees to protect our brand and company reputation. Make no mistake folks I have no issue giving you up if you’re screwing the pooch. I have more than once reported vendors taking hazards to job sites to “pad” the invoice.

Williams Home Repair here in Reno operated for almost a year without a valid business license and when the owner told me about her Hazard Scam I followed her for a day or two until I could get some photos. Many of you know I’m no choir boy and I have a past. Said past has made me have to work ten times harder than most to develop a solid company reputation and brand. I’m not complaining here, just pointing out that because of the road I went down I must work harder than the next guy to prove myself. Now when you go and screw the pooch and damage all the hard work I have done and place my company in a bad light because we are in the same industry, well sorry but I give you up and hope you receive criminal charges and fines.

The message here is that Labor HAS to work with Management and Management with Labor. Unlike the belief that Eric Miller has, that labor is immaterial. The two co-exist because of each other. However, in this insane industry there is a factor that I will delve into in upcoming articles. The other side of Management. OH Say…Fannie Mae, HUD, Freddie Mac, Wells Fargo et al. These are the folks setting the pricing and telling everyone that we are government backed and you have to pay prevailing wage. As I said a story for another day.

I have long stated that if Management wishes me to assist with them honoring their negotiated contract that I/Labor needs to be part of the equation. Have any members of Labor been asked for input from the National Oder Mills when they were negotiating contracts? And therein, as the Bard would tell us, lies the rub. We all participate in an industry that the Too Big Too Fail gang dictates too.

bannerproofSome events are rapidly approaching, a FAST event in Ohio and the National Association of Mortgage Field Services Fraud Fest in Dallas. Perhaps it’s time folks on the West Coast shake of the California Dreamin’ attitude and come together and start some meaningful discussions on how to remedy the fact that the following has occurred in the past five years:

  1. Dump Fees have gone up,
  2. Hazard disposal fees have gone up
  3. Mimimum Wage has DOUBLED
  4. Fuel pricing is still unstable
  5. Insurance, licensing fees have both gone up (our license in 2007 was $75 now $150)

All of these cost of which Labor pays, as they are the cost of doing business. While I’m not sure how this will take place. One member of Management has stepped up to acknowledge that Management and Labor must work together to bring about positive solutions for change and in fact has opened the door.

Make no mistake folks, Property Preservation is an Industry, we call it the Property Preservation Industry. Isn’t it time we all sit down and start treating the PPI as such???

No Matter Where You Are...We'll be Watching
