When John Ryals, owner of Primestar Field Services, took the money and ran, the National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) was put in a serious jam. Ryals, a flamboyant peacock whom bullied his way around NAMFS Annual conferences, hit rock bottom last August. Failed attempts to obtain bridgegap funding and inability to sell Primestar left him with only the inheritance his recently deceased mother left behind. And like Primestar itself, Ryals rapidly squandered that, as well. Millions of dollars are outstanding and even calls to Eric Miller by NAMFS members were turned away with that wink-and-a-nod Miller has perfected over the years. The International Association of Field Service Technicians (IAFST) has successfully negotiated DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR payments to our Membership. Were you owed money? Had you been an IAFST Member, you would have been paid!
And for the past five years, that has been the story with respect to NAMFS members under the Miller Regime. NAMFS membership statistics of the National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) have declined EACH YEAR, since Foreclosurepedia launched #OpNAMFS. Eric Miller, NAMFS Executive Director, lost $51,616 during NAMFS’ most recent income tax filings for Fiscal Year 2017. Under the leadership of Eric Miller, NAMFS Executive Director, NAMFS has lost tens of thousands of dollars each year while Miller has been granted ten thousand dollar per year raises during most of his tenure. Miller’s salary today exceeds One Hundred and Twenty Thousand Dollars per year which is nearly the entire remaining amount of assets and capital remaining according to their IRS filing.
And for anyone whom might argue that there are ANY redeemable qualities, with respect to NAMFS, look no further than the Twitter comments of the man selected to address women’s debt owed by — yeah, you guessed it — fellow NAMFS members. To date, the only solution which Miller and Justis Smith, the NAMFS President and CEO of Rowe Enterprises have been able to put forward is a poster child for the #MeToo movement. Let’s take a look at Brett Rockwell, for just a moment. Brett Rockwell is the point man personally selected by Eric Miller and Justis Smith to partner with NAMFS and assist women — and other NAMFS and non NAMFS members — in their collections efforts. I have always believed that our social media profiles best represent what we believe. And if you dig, historically, on people, you will find out whom they truly are. In the case of Brett Rockwell’s Twitter feed, it is pretty clear that his respect for women is challenged by his crude comments about them.
Is this the message you want your Company associated with? Is NAMFS the right fit for you? The gravity of your complacency today may very well weigh down your ability to operate in the future!
The fact of the matter is that NAMFS has always been out of touch with the Industry. Originally composed of a hard core group of Lender Processing Services (LPS) — now ServiceLink — cronies, NAMFS has never taken the time to address the concerns of Labor. Only under pressure, did Miller and then NAMFS Vice President Adriana Farello – Fernandez, attend the original Florida FAST Conference, years ago. To the point of LPS cronyism, Miller originated there. Moreover, though, with ServiceLink’s recent loss of their largest client, Seterus, the end of a Regime is close at hand.
Mr. Cooper Group (the company formerly known as Nationstar) purchased IBM’s Seterus mortgage servicing platform in a deal announced Thursday, which includes $24 billion in government sponsored enterprise mortgages and a subservicing contract for $24 billion.
The way forward, for Labor and Management, is by and through the International Association of Field Service Technicians (IAFST). From an Inspections standpoint, alone, IAFST represents nearly 122,000 inspection work orders, per month. I want that to sink in, for just a moment. While NAMFS believes that their continued fraud committed upon Minority Females and Labor is sustainable, at the drop of a hat, the IAFST could put a damper on operations. And at some point, unless the Mortgage Field Services Industry decides that people like Ryals are no longer to be tolerated, that day may come far sooner than anyone expects.
Why put off until tomorrow getting paid? Why not join the IAFST and begin getting paid TODAY!
