In light of the recent atrocities committed by Buczek Enterprises, a National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) Regime Member, against innocent men and women, the ISTAR International Consortium is being formed. The purpose of the Consortium shall be to combat National, Regional and Otherwise Unspecified Order Mills in their ongoing fraud against Mortgage Field Services Industry Contractors.
The ISTAR International Consortium shall create and establish a foundation upon which Contractors will no longer have to stand alone when fighting people like Adam and Amanda Buczek. We will utilize all legal and non violent means of non violent actions to bring these and other cowards to justice and to ensure that Contractors are enabled to file liens throughout the United States, its Territories and ultimately globally.
Below, I submit the Proposed ISTAR International Consortium for Consideration to the men and women whom have grown weary of the protection which NAMFS Regime Executive Director Eric Miller has extended to these predators. This weekend, when the ISTAR Fusion Maps finally are populated, the enormity and scale of fraud being perpetrated across state lines using electronic means will finally communicate what Miller has fought so hard to keep hidden. Make no mistake whatsoever that the Buczek’s are merely the opening act. Buczek Enterprises is the Poster Child of everything that is wrong with both the Industry and Humanity. Their Crimes Against Humanity remind me of the same type of mentality that Adolf Hitler had in that Amanda Lynn Burke Buczek’s LinkedIn moaning about her children starving because they had to pay Contractors what they owed them are almost an identical ideology. Sick. Truly subhuman and non conducive to a civilized society.
