Below is the text I faxed just now. Certainly nothing fancy, but it really does not need to be -- as it is mainly just a "numbers count game" once all the issues have been previously described, as you have done.

As we have all heard, for every person who will contact a congressman on a given issue, there are probably hundreds who feel the same way but just never get around to it. Elected officials are well aware of this phenomenon; so, for this reason, the effects of every contact is significantly "amplified." I included my full address and telephone number.

Thanks.

Re: Your constituent, Bob Burnitt's, Concerns About the Appraisal Industry / Profession

Honorable Congressman Joe Barton:

Mr. Burnitt's concerns for much needed reform, specifically regarding the effects of commissioned bank officers hiring and firing appraisers for their own mortgage lending "deals," are very legitimate.

Any assistance you may be able to provide will be appreciated by those in your district and beyond.


Respectfully,

Those in your district and beyond will appreciate any assistance you could provide. If you need anything to back up Mr. Burnitt’s information regarding the threats and bribery that are constantly applied to Real Estate Appraiser’s, please take a good look at:

AppraisersPetition.com

AppraisersForum.com

I, personally, dealt with a bribe and then a threat yesterday. I expect I will deal with another one or both over another appraisal that I will deliver today. Both of these loans will end up with Fannie Mae. Both might decide to order another appraisal from someone that will accept that bribe or cower to the threat and never tell Fannie Mae that the first appraisal didn’t make the value or actually listed the necessary repairs the property needed in order to be considered in “average” condition.

The next taxpayer paid bail-out of any bank, lending institution, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, etc., will be because our legislators did nothing to stop it from happening even though they had the information right in front of them.

Respectfully,
