I don't even believe that you have to use Bogus applications, I think you can resubmit rejected applications with slight alterations. Then you can compare the original submission results with the new submission results and see the differences. If someone is not doing the work, it should be obvious based upon the underlying research for acceptance or rejection.

I was renting my house out and had someone managing the property. Part of the property management agreement is filling out a form so that bills are sent to Property Manager when it is unoccupied. Instead the electric company sent bills to the house after my renters moved out. After 3 months they forwarded it to a collections agency.

The property manager cut the collections agency a check, but I kept getting collection notices. Eventually it came down to the collection agency putting the check against the wrong account. After the admitted the mistake they STILL sent me collection notices. I had to send them a formal letter threatening them with a lawsuit to get it fixed. They never responded back to me but they quietly fixed the issue. It took over 6 months to get it straight.

These are not simply billing issues, but accounting issues and the only person who seems accountability to anyone is the debtor; and they have to figure who F**K these people are and if they are doing their job.

We have backup, guns, radio, jackets — all that stuff civilians don't have.

Except the will to actually use it. Recovering I-Phones don't get great media coverage or the adrenaline high that a drug-bust (or maybe an eviction notice).

Lets call it like it is, people don't trust police to take of these problems. After working with police officers a few times, too many of them are jerks. Not all of them, but enough.

So lets say Facebook is the king of social media, but they are a one trick pony, they have their web site and little else. I guess they will buy their way into markets. Sound familiar? It is like he copied the Microsoft business plan, buy anything their competitors would be involved in.

It did not work for Microsoft, and it is not going to work for Facebook.

I think these guys live in the bubble imagining that things will auto-magically work out instead of it turning into the Roman Empire where everything just gets stripped to the ground.

Rome only did well as the plunder kept coming in. When that stopped, you are looking at bread and circuses and a matter of time before the existing system(whatever that may be) falls apart.

Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work for the Bell Labs Record.
