What a long strange trip it’s been. For years now a handful of people have said there are numerous ills in the Property Preservation Industry (PPI). For the most part many of us have looked to the root of the source of malcontent in the PPI and just as all roads lead to Rome, all the troubles in PPI can be traced back to #offendermembers of the National Association of Mortgage Field Services, (NAMFS).
A few years back I met Matt Stephan while assisting in the development of an organization that was supposed to be a representation organization for Labor in the PPI. Unfortunately the then chairman, a minority business owner that had a contract with Safeguard Properties, Thomas Clark, decided that it would be prudent to create a Labor Order Mill for the PPI. You can figure where that organization went. The organization was known as the National Property Preservation Guild or NPPG.
Yes the Mutt & Jeff Team combined with Thomas Clark destroyed the organization. That would be Chris Ziolokowski, an acholoic Polish American wanna be business owner from Buffalo New York, Troy Hano Hano, a fake name as this fake Portuguese Hawaiian clown that was fired from Wells Fargo for unethical behavior and Thomas Clark a black guy from Ohio all decided to give Labor a black eye while trying to unjustly enrich themselves on the backs of Labor. These three clowns while only postponing the inevitable are all washed up and gone while those of us whom decided our efforts to create positive working conditions in the PPI are all still chugging along representing and advocating for the betterment of Labor.
One of thosr people, Paul Williams of Foreclosurepedia fame is one of the most tenacious folk you’ll ever meet. You get a burr in his saddle…well to put it mildly…you have a problem.
Three years ago a guy known to the PPI as “Montana Matt”, Matt Steffan from Montana no less, sent the service specs portion of the now infamous HIPR electrical system test to OSHA’s John “Grizzy” Grzywacz Professor Emeritus,OSHA National Training Institute Electrical Safety Specialist.
The results were not favorable for the Order Mills and the #offendermembers of the National Association of Mortgages Field Services, or as I have dubbed them Nepotistic Association if Management For Stealing. In addition to being very dangerous, the procedure as we are now finding is illegal in many places.
This subject matter was part of several radio segments and commentary this past week.

Illegal Backfeeding
Backfeeding is a dangerous practice that is illegal in many localities. If you backfeed your home’s electrical system and injure or kill a worker, you will be held liable and accountable, and more than likely will be criminally prosecuted for your actions. Further, even if no one is injured, if the utility finds that you are backfeeding their lines, you may be subject to fines or the utility may disconnect your home.
Be safe and avoid problems. Install a manual transfer switch or hire a qualified electrician to do it and be ready for the next power outage.

That’s not really something you want being done on the house next door. Especially when said person is trained by someone like Jennifer Orr who claims state laws do not apply to the person completing the work. That is how employees of #offendermember companies of NAMFS train Emplactors in the field when holding “Education and Training” sessions in New Jersey. They lie and attempt to make you believe everything is ok. After all you’re the one that will be the one going to jail not them.

Now this is just me but I would think that HAD…a government agency…would have some way of having utilities turned on for say a 24 hour period to provide time for the field crews, Labor, to supply results of all these tests HUD  requires. Noooooooooooooooooooo. That’s not logical,  what we are going to do is award the work to the lowest bidder. Hello NAMES #offendermembers.
This is where Labor takes it in the shorts. They…Labor…HAVE not been able to supply input to the process. It is no secret that Eric Miller hates the term Boots On The Ground and he detests Labor. One only has to look at how he treated Bret Douglas and his company Ironclad Preservation. Miller all but put his hand in Bret’s pocket and robbed him.
What is so disgusting is the fact that in his quest to enrich himself he has destroyed an organization. In addition now Miller finds himself at serious crossroads. Now he is complacent in crimes that cross state borders. Yes, that makes Millers crime facilitating a federal matter.
What is truly sad is the fact Miller may collapse an industry. There is no question in my mind that as attorneys systematically go from company to company with information gleaned from social media and various industry blogs that the industry will become W-2 in nature.
I guess I should throw my hat in the ring if anyone is considering a regional QC/ Supervisor. Should anyone want to get ahead of the curve as they say.
I must bid you ado at this time as I have to prepare for a podcast this afternoon.

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series PPI Watch List

In this edition of PPI News to abuse, we will discuss how BLM Co’s instruction of illegally back-feeding electricity into homes. However first up is the fact that SGP has apparently made it the trend for Labor in the Property Preservation Industry (PPI) to allow members of the Nepotism Association of Management For Stealing (NAMES) is to not only allow the Offender Members (#offendermembers) to steal their monies, now they can no longer “inquire” about losing revenues on services.

Both BLM and SGP are #offendermembets of NAMFS.

In addition Safeguard Properties (SGP) as reported on over at Foreclosureprdia, SGP by their own admission via what appears to be an internal email to employees. Now, shucks-darn golly-gee-wizz I could be wrong…but what the hay…

Subject: CONFERENCE CALL RECAP
Importance: High
Hey everyone,
I have included a recap below of the topics I covered in today’s conference call. Please review this information and allocate pertinent information efficientlly to your subs and employees. Thank you and have a good evening!
• Estimate/Repairs Scope Assessments and Bid Disputes: I have attached 2 different documents regarding this topic, please read these over and ensure you understand the procedure. The Estimate and Repairs Orders and Scope Assessments Doc is strictly regarding ERD and the Bid Disputes Flow PDF is for P&P. As I stated earlier vendors who are not using this process properly will be replaced per the directive of executive management. Please follow all pricing guidelines and do not bid excessively. Additionally you cannot push back and dispute a work order just because you don’t like the pricing- there will be some orders you will break even with or even take a loss but unfortunately the pricing is what it is and it will not be altered. This is being monitored and watched, we will recruit and replace vendors who are placing fraudulent or frivolous bids as well as any vendors unjustly disputing scopes and pricing.
• MISCNB: The only time MISCNB’s should be disputed in P&P is if there was a true error on our end and you are not at fault. I am seeing entirely too many MISCNB work orders sitting until they receive a response from the MISCNB inbox and this is NOT the correct procedure! Regardless of if you are at fault or not the client needs the work completed. Once the dispute has been submitted work still is expected to be completed in a timely manner. If you are not at fault the adjustments will be made here on the back end. Any vendors who do not follow this procedures and let the work orders sit will be reassigned and charged back. Again, please don’t let this be your company and follow the correct procedure!
• New Mold Policy: You all received training on this from Roy Kurka a few weeks ago on this so this shouldn’t be news to you. If it is please see the attached document Titled PP and ERD Mold Damage Policy; make sure all of your subs understand this.
• Winterizations to be completed: I know some of you have received some winterizations already IF THEY HAVE A DUE DATE PRIOR TO 10/1 IT NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED BY THE DUE DATE REGARDLESS OF WORK ORDER TEXT (preferably earlier!). Any vendors who do not have firm commitment dates on their winterization work orders, these will be reassigned…..
• Draw Requests/Advances– Advances are a thing of the past and will no longer be completed unless there has been some kind of error on Safeguard’s end so please do not request these because they will be denied. As for draw requests these should only be few and far in-between. Some of you have been abusing this so please keep in mind that most of these are not personally approved by me and often have to go through Jeremy Barrick or Joe I. You must have all required permits uploaded into the work order and you need to be in good standing (performing).

Nevada Brothels: How Eric Miller Could Learn A Thing Or Two

Now again perhaps I missed a secret Knights of Malta business class while studying, however, I do not believe for one minute that any business…and with all due respect, your boss, for that matter, can tell you don’t ask about your money or we’ll replace/ fire you. Last time I looked….that is how management addresses EMPLOYEES.
Now, the best part if my gig. Hypothesizing. Now there is AN PPI APB OUT ON JENNIFER ORR, one of the field training electrical experts for BLM Co. It is currently PPI scuttlebutt that Jennifer Orr will be leading the instruction if back-feeding electricity into homes and providing guidance in the photography sequence necessary for everyone to get paid. Now what is so puzzling about this scuttlebutt is the fact that Mr. Martin if BLM claims they do not offer in field training for a service called a HIPR, or HUD Inspection Property Report.
Again a snippet courtesy Foreclosurepedia;

Recently Central Maine Power Company (CMPCO) Director of Communications, John Carroll stated this type of activity placed, “…linemen, contractors and the community in grave danger.” In fact, OSHA National Training Institute icon and senior faculty member, Professor John “Grizzy” Grzywacz published a document upon the grave dangers of this process. I have included a link to it in a previous article which also has my recorded interview with CMPCO’s John Carroll…..
In the podcast the gentleman from Maine said that he spoke with Brent Martin of BALM. Mr. Martin told that man a lie. Well allow me to be generous here. Perhaps Mr Martin is not currently having BLM Co. providing instruction in the state if Maine. However his field crews led by Jennifer Orr are out and about providing hands on training on how to illegally power up a house via a 220 volt dyer outlet

Perhaps I spoke too soon, as I write word is coming in that the state if New Jersey will be joining the state of Maine on the HIPR SERVICE in regards to BLM Co. Using untrained and unqualified electrical personal to provide electrical training….wow…you guys are able to following right???

A recap…unlicensed person providing “education and field training”, with no teaching credentials no less will be teaching electricity back-feeding 101 to unlicensed electricians, individuals with absolutely no training will be performing electrical, plumbing, roofing, in addition to mold remediation no less. Just a little something to think about when you’re looking at a “foreclosed” property. And oh by the way, that is just how Mr. Martin conducted a training session here in Nevada a few years back. A training session that had representatives not only from Aladay LLC, but also from Pacific Preservation , now NRES. and Donovan Contracting.
So if you’re one of the many “flippers” out there this is a valuable piece of information to know. Even more valuable if you’re in the purchasing end of things.
I pause here for a moment and allow the aroma of the just out of the oven peanut butter cookies permeates the air. Also to allow you to ponder something, as I know many of you are saying, have an electrician do it. Make no mistake they should be performing the service, and by all rights it should be completed by an electrician.
However, you’ll find that just like roofers, plumbers, glaziers, are not used for the same reason. Order Mill A wants you to perform the service….pay close attention here…say a wintetization service fir $40.00 keep 20% AND bill $300.00 for the winterization. Then find some cock-a-mammies reason to $32.00
Normally I would go down the “Labor should do” road at this juncture of my writings…however I have a much more powerful avenue to use the Radio here is a segment on the subject from a couple of days ago.

Check back later today for today’s segment.
Perhaps its time to develop a radio show for the industry????
Lets have a great day…and let’s all be safe out there.
Until Next Time
