First off let me say that this message board has me locked out for positing in the general message areas?, so I am putting this here. And it has me as a non member but I know that my check was cashed lastyear

Received this to day, is this industry so hard up that they are actually finding inspectors to mow lawns or put their life in danger running down bad dept? for a mere $30.00?.

Hi , this is Jim from avengers field agency.

We are looking for inspectors to do HUD inspections and lawn cuts along with the inspections.

These properties are empty HUD houses. The job requires you to go to the address, complete a 1-page, check-off list regarding the interior & exterior
condition. We also need the property mowed along with these inspections. These are to be conducted twice a month for a fee of $30.00 to you. These jobs will come in bulk and in the surrounding areas. I know the price of gas isn't getting any cheaper so try to arrange the inspections along with other jobs that you are doing in those same areas.

WE ALSO HAVE FIELD CALLS(CONTACTING DELINQUENT DEBTORS) IN
YOUR AREA AS WELL; THESE PAY SUBSTANTIALLY MORE!
If you are interested in Field Chasing, where you try to put the debtor on the
phone together with the collector, you get paid $40. It pays a sliding scale
from $40-$20, depending if the person is home, or you can get in touch with a
neighbor.

You sign up the same way for either Property Inspector or Field Chasing.
Property Inspectors pay $5, but come in bulk every two weeks. A check goes out on the last day of the month if jobs are completed omn the 15th of the month. If jobs are completed by the end of the month, a check goes out on the following 15th.

Please if you are interested, visit our website to register.
To register with us go to www.avengersfieldagency.com.

They called our office but my wife just laughed at the guy and told him there was no way in Hell I would be doing that for just the inspection much less mowing the grass. I don't even like to mow my own grass. For that matter I wish I could find someone to mow my grass for $30.

Sounds to me like they are trying to prey on the newbie inspectors who will do darn near anything to feed his/her family. I'm sure they are making four times if not a lot more than what they are paying out for these inspections/mowings.

They are NOT home inspections. It is an entirely different profession.

It's called "Field Services" and I know some people making a killing doing this kind of stuff.

A couple of years ago I made over $10K doing Field Services in three months one or two days a week.

Drive a 300 mile loop doing occupancy verifications, pull up in front of a house, yep someones living there/nope no ones living there, take a picture, spend about 2 mintues inputting data, on to the next one, did about 20 a day for $30 bucks a piece.

Then why did you stop? 10k for one day a month isn't bad.
