We have been tracking Five Brothers and their associated dynasties like ForeRunner (recently Hacked by QHR Hacker) and Summit Field Services for quite awhile here on Foreclosurepedia. Why? Well, I personally believe that there is far more to the story that which presents at first blush.
I digress. First, let us look at some controversial websites: Field Asset Services Lies, Deutsche Bank Fraud, Indymac Fraud, SusanKlineRealtorLies … the list goes on ad nauseum. Now, your question is probably what does any of this have to do with Five Brothers and Joe Badalamente? Perhaps nothing; however, there is one interesting feature that is IDENTICAL on all of these sites: The Favicon.
A Favicon an icon associated with a URL that is variously displayed, as in a browser’s address bar or next to the site name in a bookmark list.
We covered this uniqueness awhile back sans the controversial websites. I don’t believe in coincidence; I do not believe in random chance, it gets people killed in the Intelligence Community.
The Drive By Media never likes to become encumbered by trivial things such as investigative journalism. While ironic that I recently took on former Field Asset Services (FAS), and their current owner Assurant, as a Member of the Media, that is my job.
The worry becomes when Companies target other Companies over Contracts and/or Turf. Is that happening in the aforementioned cases? I will let the Reader make their decision.
So, Joe Badalamenti may want to make an inquiry into the anomaly of his Website Favicon which is appearing on multiple other Controversial Websites beginning in 2012. I would hate to think that the Favicon we are talking about here had no more originality than the Pet Rock.
