Home Bankruptcy NAMFS: The Tax Investigation Continues

NAMFS: The Tax Investigation Continues

The National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) Regime has been under intense scrutiny for its way of business for several years now. Most recently, the NAMFS Regime’s now disgraced and former Secretary Heather Berghorst was forced out of office when it came to light that she had not only defrauded Contractors, but had filed her second bankruptcy. In fact, Berghorst was litigated against in federal court for embezzlement, fraud and larceny by Contractors along with willful and malicious injury by 5/3 Bankcorp. A Federal Bankruptcy Judge recently ordered her to make tens of thousands of dollars in restitution to one Contractor alone.

Foreclosurepedia, in an attempt to properly evaluate precisely where the NAMFS Regime obtains its money and how it compensates its Board of Directors, requested a copy of the NAMFS Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 990 — its tax return which is required to be made, upon request. Eric Miller, the NAMFS Regime Executive Director whom receives WELL OVER ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS PER YEAR CONSUMING OVER SEVENTY PERCENT OF ALL MEMBER DUES, agreed to release this form to Foreclosurepedia in July, 2014. As of December, 2014, Miller has refused to do such and Foreclosurepedia was forced to file an IRS 13909 Complaint against both Miller and NAMFS for violation of federal law.

NAMFS is listed as an IRS 501(c)(6) non profit corporation and is founded in Delaware having its main virtual office in Ohio. In 2012, NAMFS decided to add more subsidiaries to their stable and created the NAMFS Foundation. IRS informed Foreclosurepedia that NAMFS does not have a Letter of Determination conveying not for profit status pertaining to the ability to receive tax exempt donations. The State of Ohio stated that NAMFS is not registered in their state; however, the NAMFS Foundation is. Specifically, after speaking with the Ohio Attorney General’s office, the Ohio Secretary of State’s office and the Ohio Department of Taxation, we were informed that upon receipt of our Inquiry, they will make arrangement to both provide the NAMFS Foundation’s tax records and they will follow up on why it is that NAMFS itself, as the parent corporation, is not legally registered with the state.

It is becoming more and more evident to myself, at least, that Eric Miller is running his own little rouge operation and apparently utilizing NAMFS as the conduit for what appears to me to be fraud. I suppose, if this is the case, that you can’t blame him completely as he is merely the product of the same environment which created Adriana Farelo-Fernandez and the rest of the NAMFS Regime Board of Directors.

Foreclosurepedia had the opportunity to follow up with IRS today as well as the Ohio Department of Taxation. We were requested by the State of Ohio to forward a fax to them outlining our issues with both NAMFS and the NAMFS Foundation,

Foreclosurepedia wishes to telegraph in extremely clear and unmistakable language that it will force Eric Miller to comply with federal law and have prosecuted to the fullest extent of law any civil or criminal actions. The reality is that NAMFS could simply obey the law and further Eric Miller could follow through with his promises under NAMFS Letterhead and as an agent of NAMFS and simply provide a copy of the NAMFS IRS Form 990. The damage which is being caused by the involvement of multiple state and federal agencies far outweighs any miscreant activity which might be contained within their tax returns.
