Who was your client? And stop commenting about this on an open on-line forum

The client was an AMC and I suppose the payday lender mentioned, the property was not identified so I'm just looking for advice on my next step.

I'm not asking for clarification, but if you authored a report, it doesn't make sense that you are unclear on this.

You noted that you received a call. That would be unusual without have been sent written information about the complaint first. As far as your next step, you should contact your E&O provider, which is likely required by your policy, and you should be finding a lawyer that specializes in administrative law.

I work at a company and my boss was not named, hes an MAI who signed off on it, so he accepted full responsibility for it. I thought it was strange they called me, I inspected it and then started getting harrassing phone calls from borrower and broker. I have been doing this for 20 years and have never been in a situation like this.

STFU on the internet and contact your E&O. Remove your prior posts if you can. Stop asking non attorneys for help/advice. Turtle up.

Just so you understand, this does not alleviate you from full responsibility for the report that you signed.

have never been in a situation like this.
I can appreciate this and understand your concerns. There are steps that you can take but I would not do anything without advice of counsel. After all it is your license and neither your E&O company or even your employer necessarily will have Your best interests in mind at all times.

Hard Money Lenders can be very litigious ** BUT ** your comments make me very nervous because you make statements like FBI *** like they care or have time for this kind of issue. You my friend need to clear your mind and contact your E & O carrier and consult with their attorney and not get advice from appraisers on a forum :)

Filing a complaint in revenge will get you in enormous trouble. Lawyer up and wait for the STATE to contaçt ou by mail. Don't respond to their harassment but slap an answering machine on phone or let it go to voice mail.
