Can not understand the almost complete lack of participation in the employer rating and non-payment section that Roy has been so kind as to set up for us.
This is meant to advise all the Independent adjusters of which IA firms pay as agreed and which ones do not. If their name appears on the list there is a problem, which can and should be resolved.
Despite the many complaints which have been posted on CADO, and despite the inaction on the part of the IA vendor, there have been but 2 posts made. There is one post that is so on target, as personally i have heard of several dozen adjusters who have waited 2-3 years to be paid, if at all.
Where are all those that got scammed by the nefarious "Fat Eddie" ? Who is now hiding out of the country, according to published newspaper reports.
If in fact you need directions on how to post it, send a message to one of us and we will walk you through the process.
If, in fact, no one chooses to list the culprits, then y'all may just get what you now have, NOTHING.
We professionals try and provide guidance, in the form of education, advice and so many other concerns which befit and befall our profession. Why do some still insist that they re-invent the wheel? If you are told a fire will burn you, do you stick your hand in it, to be sure?
Is there a fear among you that IF you post you will be "blackballed" or seen as a troublemaker to other vendors, for telling the truth? Balderdash. The better IA Vendors would like to see the poor ones fail, and be run out of town on a rail because they then will pick up the business the culprits have lost.
The carriers surely will respect your comments, as they could not be aware of all of the activities of these nefarious and guilty vendors, and surely would not wish to be exposed to any kind of legal actions or aggravation from policy holders whom have had a lien placed on their property, or a demand for payment for services rendered.
Every state is different, and the laws related to liens are different. The bad guys know the laws, as we do not take the time to investigate them and just head out the door when the phone rings.
Time to wake up folks. This season is about to start, and we have to know who to just say NO to.
Either post up or close up.
Thanks Roy for your assistance, some of us appreciate it immensely.
