I just got a text message from a business owner in Dallas who is working with, as he put it, a “Snitch.” The “Snitch” is a South Dallas homeowner who is essentially tattling tailing on landlords in Oak Cliff (South Dallas) to code compliance officials. The Bird Dog (who they refer to as the snitch for laughter purposes) is essentially a wholesaler looking to make $1,000 – $3,000 per deal that he can refer to the business owners. So let’s talk about what this has to do with Privacy and Anonymity. To begin with, the “Bird Dog” initially goes to the local county website and types in the property address. There, nine times out of 10, he can pinpoint the owner. With this information, he can call code compliance and code can come out, site the home for a violation and possibly begin causing issues for the owner.
