You need a subscription to read the Appraisal Intelligence. And I don't.

But, the 2nd story is very interesting. My question, Did the appraiser violate USPAP by being wired? Isn't the appointment findings and conversation during the appointment considered confidential?

I think its great this councilman being exposed, but I don't think I would risk a license to do it.

Not if a judge authorized the wiretap which is likely.

Thanks, Frank!

If this keeps up, there's no way they're gonna place all the blame on Appraisers when the shi* hits the fan this time.

Where is the bribe? All I saw was a promise for more business. We hear that BS all the time. This sounds like some political dirty work. Is he up for reelection or something?

Dale,

You know as well as the rest of us most of the time the appraiser does not get a piece of the action. Most are willing to do the deed for nothing more than a promise of steady work.

As for the councilman, we'll let the folks in Cleveland decide. If he hopes to get re-elected he might have to work a bit to get his stories straight and not make promises he's unwilling or unable to keep.

Frank:

That is funny. Was it not NC, who just several month ago said that having an oversight board was a really bad idea. They filed a protest against it. What is with these guys? It sounds like, they do not want anyone overseeing their work. I wonder why? If they can not stop an oversight board, they will dominate it. What a bunch of thugs. Sounds like something street gangs in Chicago would try to do. The more I hear about these pr*cks the more I think they are worse than the bad appraisers they were assigned to protect us against. This is why so many appraisers support a Federal take over.

I apologize for the bad comment. However, the hypocrisy is incredible. Just plain incredible. We deserve better than this. We really do.

U can do everything in your power to be as honest as possible, that does NOT mean your not going to be dragged into an investigation. The "Your innocent until proven quilty" is a good sound bite BUT that is all it is. Once someone reads your being investigated your QUILTY in the eyes of MOST. We need commitment from fellow appraisers that WHEN - IF an appraiser is brought into an investigation others will support him UNTIL it is PROVEN beyond a SHADOW OF DOUBT that that PARTICULAR Appraiser worked to commit FRAUD not just a mistake in CLONING or MISSED a VITAL PIECE of information. ETC ETC This idea is presented because EVERYONE of US is VERY POPSSIBLY the next APPRAISER to be brought up on charges.
