Mark F Spietz, a Kaukauna, WI, resident, was found guilty of three counts of burglary and one count of theft between $5,000 – and $10,000. Spietz, 39, was convicted by a jury after two days of testimony and argument. Spietz worked for TruAssets LLC, a Scottsdale, AZ, firm and National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) Member for nearly two years.
From the moment of his initial questioning at the Kaukauna Police Department, by Captain Terri Hook and detective Dan Semmerling of the Oneida County sheriff’s office, Spietz maintained he had been on the property and took the items in his capacity as an employee of TruAssets of Scottsdale, Ariz., which secures abandoned or foreclosed properties for banks.
Spietz embodies precisely the problems which the Mortgage Field Services Industry faces today. After nearly a decade of fraud, waste and abuse financed upon the backs of Minorities and Members of Labor; after the fleecing of US Taxpayers to the tune of billions of dollars, what little seasoned Labor there was has left. NAMFS has refused to take the lead in the establishment of Industry Acceptable Protocols much to the peril of both homeowners and US Taxpayers alike.
Now, Foreclosurepedia spoke with TruAssets LLC whom stated Spietz was not an employee, but as the cited article points out, Spietz stated he had no training. And even more on point, the very website which NAMFS Financial Terrorists attempt to force you to go and get their $300+ per module training is clearly labeled by Google as UNSAFE! I mean Aspen Grove Solutions, whom now claim to own part of the non profit NAMFS subdomain, is tasked with background checking folks and protecting their data are incapable of even doing such!
When NAMFS stole its educational platform from its creator, Rob Preston, it was doomed from the beginning. On a perpetual FORTY PERCENT PRICE REDUCTION for the past several years, most NAMFS Members refuse to even consider the NAMFS Academy as being either timely or relevant. It has become an albatross without a home.
And one of the biggest problems of Training is simply having competent people capable of doing it. You know, Eric Miller simply isn’t capable of doing it. Fact of the matter is that when he and Adriana Farello-Fernandez of the Farello Group, were at the original Florida FAST, it was apparent that Miller was proficient in getting in and out of business clothes rapidly as he and Adriana, the then NAMFS Vice President, both did in the Holiday Inn bathroom. When it came to technical discussions, neither were capable of unscripted dialogue.
I mean it ranks up there with Tim Doehner, born in September, 1950, being able to live down in Starke, FL, on 16th Ave, and sell his Hillbrook Lane, Chagrin Falls, OH, house for $197,500. Gotta thank Aspen Grove for the good work they are doing over there! Yeah, the NAMFS Board of Directors has it really rough as it forces continued downward pressure upon Labor for illegal chargebacks which are never refunded to the US Government on the FHA 27011.
That’s the deal with compliance. If it isn’t making NAMFS Board Members money, they do not give a damn. Here, let me walk you through the revolving door of how the NAMFS Board never changes and all get paid,
Beginning in 2010, Tim Doehner reversed course with respect to compensation with respect to the NAMFS Executive Director. In fact, between the founding of the NAMFS Regime in 1988 through 2009 — TWENTY ONE YEARS — not a single NAMFS Regime Executive Director ever remotely approached the obscene ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLAR PLUS A YEAR salary which Eric Miller is lavished with. To put this into perspective for FY2013, let me extrapolate the numbers in the way that only a trained media professional such as myself is capable of doing,
For FY2013, the NAMFS Regime brought in $192,210 in Offender Member Dues. Eric Miller was paid $120,215 in salary. This IS EXCLUDING ALL OF THE PERKS MILLER RECEIVED. $15,714 was paid for travel; $15,594 was paid for hotels. In fact, for the NAMFS Regime’s Virtual Office it consumed SIX HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY SIX DOLLARS!
Going back all the to the 2006 filings Deanna Alfredo (Simmons) was seated on the Board of Directors (BoD). She was the Secretary at that time. Now, I want you to do a little bit of math here. She became the President of NAMFS. That means that she has occupied a BoD Position off and on for close to a decade. Eric Miller, Executive Director today, dates all the way back to the 2007 filing period. Granted, I am not a lawyer; however, I find it to be an extreme conflict of interest when, during some of the same time periods reported, Miller was also the Vice President of Business Intelligence for Lender Processing Services, Inc. (LPS).
Scratching the surface just a wee bit more we find that the only time the names seem to change on the Part V-A Listing of Current Officers, Directors, Trustees and Key Employees is when they actually created new positions to absorb folks.
Did you ever ask yourself how much money the NAMFS Vice President and former Executive Director, Tim Doehner, of NAMFS made? In the 2010 filing it was $105,000.00! That’s right. Now remember, in the 2007 Filing Season the Executive Director only made $36,000. So, that is a SIXTY NINE THOUSAND DOLLAR INCREASE in pay over the course of two filing seasons! Also, remember that …all of the Contractor’s pay continues taking a nose dive not to mention the fact that the US Economy and Housing market are not outputting volume in the manner they used to.
In the 2007 Filing Season the Executive Director states a 30 hour work week. That work week in the 2010 Filing Season had only increased by ten hours per week — in reality, the Executive Director collected an ADDITIONAL $69,000.00 for working a normal, no overtime work week.
Nothing here to see, folks. Keep moving on. I mean if this is the Compliance you people want, more power to you. 😉
