He is not allowed, by his contract with Thornberry, to acknowledge the “existence” of his agreement with Thornberry to sell his clients personal information to him to any third party without Thornberry’s permission. He must keep his contractual relationship … to sell his clients personal information in exchange for compensation … a secret from his client or anyone else.
I think that is pretty clear. There is nothing false in my post, even if members were moderated.
Your pal, Troy, invited himself to come along and support the alarm leads broker to whom he is selling his clients personal information to, but doesn’t want to publicly acknowledge that he is doing it. Seems pretty odd for something he claims to be so ethical and correct. As far as I know, he entered the conversation voluntarily.
Do you also sell your clients personal information to the alarm leads broker for compensation that you conceal from them … and then add language to your contract so that Thornberry can bypass the “no call” list that they might be on to protect themselves from harassing alarm leads salesmen?
Or do you just think that it is unethical to speak publicly about what a home inspector does that is unethical to his client?
Openly challenging vendors is a membership benefit. If you decide, on your own, to jump into the cross hairs to defend him don’t complain when you get an a s s full of buckshot.
It’s a waste of time Juan. James Bushart, as Mike would say, is a “known ethics violator” and has been sanctioned in the past for his offenses while a member of the ESOP. This has all been stated by the current ESOP chair who refuses to enforce any ethics rules James currently violates. This is all being done to send a message to Nick, who’s decisions they disagree with. I also suspect this group of long time members fully agree with and therefore are supporting one another to keep this drama alive.
Thank goodness our law enforcement don’t pout and refuse to uphold the law when they disagree with a court decision. Toothless or neutered or childish leadership should never be allowed to remain in place and play games.
There are states where it is illegal - and where a home inspector can lose his license - for accepting compensation (directly or indirectly) from a service provider that he recommends to a client.
The same activity is prohibited by ASHI’s code of ethics. The ASHI President of a very populated area with a very large ASHI membership has published that it was unethical for ASHI members to participate in such a scam as this.
There is a reason that you were required to sign a contract that forbids you to tell anyone … including your client … about the “existence” and the terms of your agreement with Thornberry to be compensated for selling him private information about your cleint, but he won’t tell what it is.
It might be the same reason why, in your agreement with Thornberry, you must add a provision to your contract that - upon signing your contract for a home inspection - every client also signs away his rights under any “no call” list he has put his name on.
Why all the secrecy and confidentiality about a process that is alleged to be so ethical and legal ---- except where it is specifically declared to be illegal and unethical? Particularly, why is the client whose personal information is the commodity being brokered left totally out of the loop? Why does the client not know that you are being compensated … and why are you forbidden, by contract, to tell him?
I don’t think you are a crook … but I am not convinced that Thornberry isn’t. Neither are others who you will be hearing and reading from, soon.
