MCS thinks because it is their policy that makes it an industry standard? lol

There are other nationals requesting checks through Aspen as well. I think there is some link/relationship with NAMFS.

It`s definitely the ol Eric Miller sell out. I believe MCS and Corelogic are going to this....
More liabilities on the backs of contractors.....

It wasn't MCS on my end but the email stated from my national that they meet with 6 other nationals that all want to start using it.

I think Wells Fargo is driving this train imo

It's NAMFS latest cure for the "Bad Contractor". Remember, there are no bad companies in NAMFS, just sub-contractors who can't be trusted. It was rolled out, as I understand, with a cost of $65 per BC. I believe company owner's are also being asked to submit for anyone they sub to as well. It's going to be a profitable endeavor I'm sure and also offer some damage control. One company on Linkedin said that an Order Mill wanted them to pay over $100 per background check. Let's see $65 for a background check, $20 for the grass cuts, pay in 45 to 60 days (if at all) and the pride of being a business owner!

I was told it was being pushed by Wells Fargo as well. However that other Nationals were getting on the wagon with it for all their clients and such.

Actually I think it is one of the better ideas.

It is transferable to multiple clients AMS has their own branding of it as contractor advantage, it is however the same thing after I searched it. It was only $25 through them, I see it priced higher for other clients. I am not a fan of background checks in general, they are however the norm in just about everything we do these days, at least with this one I can just send the results to any of the nationals I might want to accept work from, and maybe use as a credential. Now, if only there were a national client worth taking on.

I pass my background checks with all my clients. It seems to be more then just background checks. It's seems to be getting coded photos also. It almost appears to be a universal tracking account of us( the contractor). The site states about uploading photos to they're "cloud" . Namfs and we'll a are driving the train. Should see who owns the company.

I remember working for a preservation company before you were required to have E & O insurance. Namfs was the promoter of that from my understanding.
