When the chairman of the ESOP Committee demanded that the alarm leads broker reveal information about his products and services at the time they were being ethically challenged by home inspectors, their attorneys and their CPAs so that they could be reviewed for compliance with the association’s ethical standards … the alarms lead salesman refused to provide him with any information and, instead, declared information about his products and services as “proprietary” and then threatened the chairman of the ESOP Committee (Joe Farsetta) with frivolous lawsuits for asking the question.
He also threatened the home inspectors who, having consulted with professionals and were advised not to participate, published the advice of their attorneys and CPAs for other inspectors to read with the same frivolous lawsuits. He had an attorney email a threatening letter to each “offending” inspector and demanded that they delete the posts where they warned other inspectors about the advice that their attorneys and CPAs had provided to them.
Now … when he thinks it serves him … he offers to provide a tip of his unethical iceberg for review of its application to the code of ethics and demands an opinion. LOL
Carefully read this question he posed for an ethical review:
By Thornberry’s creative wording of this question … is the home inspector selling private information about his client to Thornberry and receiving a kickback of $200 … or has he worded the question in such a manner that it is the home inspector who is selling the alarm system to his client, himself? Slick, huh?
Remember … he had also stated that his unlicensed engineering services (which the state in which his company operates from has ordered him to cease and desist) was being promoted as “100% compliant” with the same verbal attacks against anyone who suggested otherwise.
Perhaps with his recent concerns about the potential for inspectors participating in his scams as being unethical … he can explain why those who contract with him are prohibited, by contract, from disclosing even the “existence” of their business relationship with him to the home buyer whose personal and private information he is purchasing from their home inspector.
What will he say next? How many inspectors are actually falling for this?
