Robosigning Firm With Ties To Scientology Wins Award By Inc. Magazine For Strengthening The Economy
Steve Dibert, MFI-Miami
In what can only be described as the biggest “Are you friggin’ stoned?” moment in American media since Leonard Nimoy sang, “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” on national television in 1967, Inc. Magazine has named the document processing company, Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC) in Palm Bay, Florida to their 2012 list of Hire Power Awards. This award is in order to celebrate the fastest-growing privately-held companies in the United States that have been working towards rebuilding the economy.
You may remember NTC as the home of the triumvirate robosigning team of Bryan Bly, Crystal Moore, Dhurata Doko, who’s questionable signatures were used on thousands of affidavits and mortgage assignments across the U.S. to foreclose on people. Bly, Doko and Moore would allegedly, as they say in baseball, “switch hit” by signing as signatories for various banks as “Vice President” or other official titles and then notarize the documents for each other regardless if they witnessed the person signing it or not.
In a company press release yesterday, NTC claims they, “won the Tampa Bay Times’ Top Workplaces two years in a row, proving that their drive for excellence is geared towards employees, not just customers”.
NTC along with DocX revolutionized robo-signing and turned it from a science to a Kama Sutra style art form. NTC currently has over 325 local employees, and that number continues to grow thanks in part to spoils of robo-signing. According to the press release put out by NTC, “They continue to work on perfecting their systems.”
According to the Tampa Bay Times, NTC also has extensive ties to the Church of Scientology and it’s owners have donated generously to church projects:
“What few people knew was that the Palm Harbor company had extensive ties to the Church of Scientology. And that NTC’s owners, who have donated heavily to church projects, ran the company on management principles of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
“There are many companies like ours,” he wrote on a Scientology-related website, “but I’m proud to say, through hard work and L. Ron Hubbard’s administrative technology, in just a short time we rose to being one of the leading servicers in our field.”
The use of Hubbard’s technology on Nationwide’s busy campus — which can image up to 500,000 pages of mortgage documents a day — has sparked complaints that the company foists Scientology principles on workers and creates a high-pressure environment.
“Employees are being told not to talk to each other and if they do, they are terminated,” a manager of WorkNet Pinellas, a nonprofit job agency, wrote in an e-mail to colleagues in December. “Papers that are signed at the time of hire have L. Ron Hubbard info on it.”
