Counce’s company was required to visit a property, complete a report, take photographs and send the information to the lender. Initially, Counce performed inspections himself. As his company grew, employees were hired to carry out the inspections. As the number of foreclosures skyrocketed, the employees were not able to keep up with the volume of inspection requests. Counce’s staff began fabricating reports.
According to investigators, Counce directed inspectors to visit the property and take more photographs than necessary. The photos were then used for subsequent reports. In other cases, Counce allegedly told workers to use information from public websites to fabricate reports for properties that were never inspected.
Employees estimated about 30 percent of the reports completed in 2007 and 2008 were fabricated. That percentage increased to 50 to 60 percent in 2009 when Counce won a new contract with Bank of America. Bank of America paid the company about $23.5 million over the course of five years.

I found this posted at Foreclosurepedia. I have to say that I would not work for a firm that has such a clause in their contract. If they are great firm… what are they so worried about?

What would Adolf Hitler say about HUD changing the master key codes?
According to reports issued by the U.S. Justice Department, a real estate agent pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to steal government property. Sember Lynn Smathers, 49, has been accused of selling household appliances she illegally removed from vacant homes owned by the federal housing agency.
Court records, that have since been made public, indicate that Smathers stole approximately $13,678 worth of appliances from vacant homes. She used her position as a real estate agent to gain access to the listings of vacant homes in the Charlotte area that were owned by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urbane Development (HUD). Smathers used her HUD master key to enter each vacant home and steal whatever she could, including refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, clothes and lawn maintenance equipment.
Smathers then proceeded to elicit the goods over several Internet websites and through a business she established called “Cheap Stuff.”
“So I submitted a high bid and HUD approved the bid.
Then the Mortgage Order Mill (MOM) shopped the task
around and hired another contractor to do the job.
The MOM was paid the higher price that I bid. If
they can’t find a lower bid, they will demand that I
lower the price if I want more work. They are
playing games with both me and HUD.”
SOFI has created a database for bids that you were told were not accepted by HUD. We will offer the information in this database to HUD. HUD can looked at the bids that they have approved and see if the approved bidder got the bid or if it was shopped around and provided to a lower bidder while the higher bid was submitted for HUD approval.
