How about some Monday Night Fodder and do a little catch up on the Property Preservation Industry… I have to say that this week has been entertaining to say the least in regards to PPI News That Affects Labor.

First up for PPI News that Affects Labor

The past few weeks have been traumatizing if you’re on the receiving end at CWIS. Receiving, that would be management as they are the taking sort ain’t they???Where do we start??? How about we beat up Carole Ramagos first? Carole was seen on Facebook this past week begging for a young lady to write her son in prison. Perhaps it’s a mother’s guilt for not being a better parent??? Just askin’ folks just askin’.. then to have your whole clan placed in the same room with Mickey dale Snow and the teen age prostitution ring? Well I’m sure it’s a safe bet to say that There may be better days ahead…unless the courts decide not to be forgiving.

Next in line for PPI news that Affects Labor

The past 48 hours  I have received numerous phone calls informing me that I placed a Board of Director member of the National Association of Mortgage Field Services…or as Little Man fondly refers to them, “Management for Stealing”  on the Property Preservation Industry Watch List. So????? They deserve it and the fact that the owner of Imagine Services Group has become an Order Mill, which could not have been accomplished without cooperation of the Offender Members of NAMFS, and this does nothing but reinforce the “Conspiracy to commit Fraud” and “Fraud in the Inducement” theories that have been forwarded on each of the respective subject matters.

While I was verifying that Steven Lefler, (Regional Representative, 2015-2017) was actually on the NAMFS BOD I stumbled upon the following:

Steven L. Lefler is the founder and CEO of Imagine Service Group, Inc. located in St. Cloud, Florida.  Mr. Lefler began his company back in April of 1994 servicing the central Florida region as a one man show.  This has given him over 21 years of active experience in the industry.  Steven has earned his BS in Communications from James Madison University located in Harrisonburg, VA.

Now isn’t that Spaaaaaaaaaatialllllllll!!!

Then of there was this education tidbit…in our PPI News that Affects Labor.

NAMFS rolled out its Initial Industry Training & Certification Program in 2010. NAMFS continues to update and expanded these offerings through The NAMFS Academy.  These courses include various formats of e-learning, including Basic Literature, Video, PP Presentations and Multi-Media.

The expanded Certifications are:

  • Inspection (Inspection & General Industry Modules)
  • Pre-Sale Preservation (Pre-Sale, General Industry & Recurring Services Modules)
  • Post-Sale Preservation (PoTo rub salt in the wounds st-Sale, General Industry & Recurring Services Modules)
  • Preservation (Pre & Post-Sale, General Industry & Recurring Services Modules)
  • Inspection & Preservation (Inspection, Pre & Post-Sale, General Industry & Recurring Services Modules)

Our expectation is that this program will set a new standard for trained, qualified field service technicians so that when hiring companies have a choice, they choose the NAMFS Certified vendor.

Thank you to the Education Committee for their efforts, as well as those that supported through other means!

Our expectation is that this program will set a new standard for trained, qualified field service technicians so that when hiring companies have a choice, they choose the NAMFS Certified vendor.

Excuse me but when did NAMFS become accredited to “Certify” anyone??? And ya gotta love their use of You Tube, I mean after all no telling what could go wrong, especially if someone hacked their website???

How is this PPI News that Affects labor??? Well for starters it leaves the impression that only “Certified NAMFS Members” are qualified to perform services for the clients…er a I mean “Hiring Companies”. In addition, an “NAMFS Vendor” are Order Mills and they do not actually do the work…so I’m told. Kinda like the Background check…The membership of NAMFS is exempt.

Not sure how this will play out in the courts but speaking of jurisprudence. Now for some PPI News that Affects labor that everyone will want to hear…

I received an update on the BOWERMAN v. FIELD ASSET SERVICES LITIGATION;

In speaking with Mr. Duckworth of the Duckworth Peters Lebowitz Olivier LLP law firm representing the Plaintiff’s in the matter before the courts, another in the long line of Independent Contractor v Employee issues that has plagued the industry or many years now.

My understanding is that the Court approved FAS’s questionnaire and so about 10% of the California class will be receiving a questionnaire concerning the case.  Trial is now scheduled for May 2017.

You can find out more on this matter here

You can find our more about DPLO Law whose motto is…

Representing individuals who have the courage to exercise their rights

Remember folks, for over six years now I have been saying, as have others, that the amount of control and direction you’re given in the PPI via an Order Mill, makes you an employee. As a matter of fact that is WHY Imagine Services Group was placed on the PPI Watch List…not because they have stolen monies from Labor, not because they are a member of the Offender Member Network, not because the owner is on the BOD of NAMFS…no because the contract exerts so much control over you, you become their employee. In addition they are starting up a business model that is destined to fail. In addition I have seen their pricing. This means I should prepare to hear from an attorney about the $50,000.00 fine, I do believe their contract calls for since I have divulged their “proprietary” information in the media.

Now this last entry breaks my heart as JJ Batts works for this company and JJ is a decent guy. However, the stories flying around about NFN right now cannot be ignored. It’s being reported that NFN may very well be spinning out of financial control. This would not be the first time this company has owed a lot of money to Labor. It’s rumored that NFN currently owes over $500,000.00 to labor and cannot pay. Could be wrong but the last time I believe the number went into seven figures. We’ll be monitoring the chatter as we follow these and all the PPI News that affects Labor.

In closing this edition of PPI News That Affects Labor, Don’t forget to mark September for the next FAST event this to be held in Ohio, Home to NAMFS….mmmmmmmmmm

Should you come across any PPI News That Affects Labor contact us today and we’ll make sure the industry is updated.

Until Next Time

I can’t believe that all I get paid…

I’m guessing by now the powers to be at the National Association of Mortgage Field Services thought I climbed under a rock and dissipated into the mist…Keep on dreaming dreaming on, Mr. Miller. I’m also guessing that it comes as no surprise that two MORE of the esteemed members of “Nepotism R Us” commonaly called NAMFS are joining the PPI Watch List.

So now CWIS LLC is in the mix of the non-payment category. In addition to CWIS making the Property Preservation Watch ListNational Field Network (NFN) is there also this week. Now you may ask what do this addition of the PPI Watch List??? Once again members of the National Association of Mortgage Field Services, and again the second tier “subbers” are not paying Labor.

As every other PPI Watch List Member both CWIS, and NFN receive their work orders from another member further up the food chain. Both have a business model that has failed numerous times the one not only has to wonder why every member of NAMFS isn’t on the PPI Watch List, but why does the Board of Directors continue to allow this type of business to be conducted and make the claims they do? In regards to NFN we are receiving reports from members of Labor that prefer to remain anonymous right now, that they are now being cheated out of basic trip fees. Yes you read that correctly. NFN has decided that if you go to a property at their request they do not have to pay you and in fact they informed Contractors that if they do not use  any supplies at a property that there is no fee to be paid for anything. Now my question to idiots accepting this new money cheating policy…Why is it that all these companies have to cheat you out of the monies you earn? Do you not grasp the fact that with out you SUPLLYING your time and SUPPLYING fuel for vehicle that you are in fact using “supplies”??? And oh by the way those supplies cost Aladay LLC money and if you say they don’t cost you…you’re lying to yourself Kinda like those nitwits calling themselves a Mortgage Field Service Professional while scrubbing a commode for HUD. Yes HUD who by the way is part of the government and they get paid prevailing wage…for Labor about $21 something an hour…

ARE YOU FRICKEN CRAZY???????????????????????????????

Allow me to be very blunt here. The problem with the Property Preservation isn’t that members of Labor are being cheated, or NAMFS members attempting to bankrupt outspoken company owners, or even the multiple layering and pyramiding of the industry…IT IS THE IDIOTS THAT CONTINUE TO ACCEPT THE WORK.

Labor has allowed the Emplactor mentality out of shear fear. Fear that they will not be able to put food on the table next week. Fear they will not receive any work.  Fear from tyrant employers that many employees exhibit when they are afraid to be fired. That is the problem with the PPI today.

I’m sorry folks I don’t usually beat a sector of Labor but this is well deserved. One just cannot accept a demand to work for free. Now as one that always has a solution…

In regards to NFN new policy. You drive to a property and it is occupied. You don’t get paid??? I’m sorry but pull you head out of your but and bill for the supplies you have used. You had to “supply” fuel to the vehicle and supply you time/labor to go find out the property was occupied…HEY STUPID…you just used “supplies” as you just supplied fuel and labor to gather information that NFN is billing for. I will bet to dollars to donuts at 11-1 NFN bills for the information you have supplied them.

So as 2016 starts to progress and tax time has come and gone I have to wonder how many accountants have advised their clients to get into another industry. For years many of the industry leaders and prominent figures Like John Allen of BIIG Inspections, have been saying diversify. Bret Douglas with Ironclad Preservation found out the hard way. However, we are very happy to report that Bret has returned to the private sector and is slowly rebounding from the nepotism displayed by the NAMFS membership…

When I think that JJ Batts is working at NFN in some C-Level position I have not heard different I have to wonder about his sincerity when has spoken on behalf of Labor while he was with FAS. His new boss Shari Nott, won’t allow him to speak anymore in social media perhaps that is how her name became Nott??? Just thinking out loud folks. I cannot believe that anyone has to work for criminals. I also can’t believe that any respectable member of Labor would allow themselves to be dictated to as how their time will be compensated, in this particular case, NOT compensated.

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

I’m guessing that somewhere along the way “negotiating” in the PPI was prohibited by the upper echelon members of NAMFS. Somewhere the decision to make demands, without input from Labor has been made by the membership under the direction of Eric Miller. I just do not understand why more members of Labor will not step up and join the lawsuits for Employeee/IC violations. Why labor will not file a lien on a property they are owed. Even after myself and The Lunatic in the Mountain for years now have been assisting and in fact, even got Scott Wolfe’s company involved with providing information and assistance in lien filing. Still every day the band plays on…

So while Foreclosurepedia and Aladay LLC continue to produce article after article on the atrocities perpetuated against labor, the Membership of NAMFS continue to find “NEWBIES” they can manipulate like a bull with a ring in its nose.  What this tells me about NFN..they are insolvent folks. Any company that attempts to cheat you out of money??? They have money problems.

What is so ironic…I you say no they will go away. Now I’ve been told that emails will be furnished and while I wait for confirmation on several issues that have come across my desk the some drummer is beating the same song. It’s has become a broken record. For this new “Me” “Y” “X” generations…a broken record is a black vinyl disc with a hole in the center, it sits on what is called a “turntable” and spins in a circle. When the record breaks, the same snippet plays over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and overandscreeeeeeeeeeetch…..sorry about that say thanks to my secretary that just smacked the back off my head. That was how we fixed the broken record, YOU SMACKED it…

So to the LABOR members of the PPI…smack management!!!! Sue them, file a lien, file complaints. But don’t roll over and hide in the closet because you are afraid to get fired…

Once again there is an opportunity to provide Labor with a voice. Contact me should you like to inquire about sponsoring a radio show.

I was going to write and post the radio segment I did on this information. However, in light of the information pouring in at the current rate I will follow up later and post the radio segments.

Should any of you have any information on these or anything you feel may be remotely news worthy on any company the steals from Labor or perpetuates any type of crime against Labor…contact me and we’ll get the wonderful  folks some air time…..

Until Next Time Folks

Happy Gardening.
