Home Owners Foreclose on Bank of America … Turn About is Fair Play


Home owners foreclose on Bank …

After all of the banks that have incorrectly foreclosed on unsuspecting homeowners, its nice to see that the roles were reversed in a major way for once. According to WFMY News, the problems started five months ago when Bank of America filed foreclosure papers on the home of a couple, who didn’t owe a dime on their home. The home owners paid cash for their house, but BOA wanted to here nothing of it.

The case went to court and the homeowners were able to prove they didn’t owe Bank of America anything on the house. In fact, it was proven that the couple never even had a mortgage bill to pay.

A Collier County Judge agreed and after the hearing, Bank of America was ordered, by the court to pay the legal fees of the homeowners’, Maurenn Nyergers and her husband.

The Judge said the bank wrongfully tried to foreclose on the Nyergers’ house.

So what did Bank of America do when asked to pay legal fees by the courts? Ignore the order of course. Five  months went by and no sign of  the$2,534  legal fee payment for the error. payment nor was BOA returning calls. The Nyergers’ attorney then did what has to be one of the best things I have ever seen to get his clients rightful fees … attorney Todd Allan foreclosed on the bank and seized their assets.

Sheriff’s deputies, movers, and the Nyergers’ attorney went to the bank and foreclosed on it. The attorney gave instructions to to remove desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets and any cash in the teller’s drawers.

After about an hour of being locked out of the bank, the bank manager handed the attorney a check for the legal fees.

“As a foreclosure defense attorney this is sweet justice” says Allen.

Talk about the tables being turned. Talk about your sweet justice. A home owner seizing assets from a bank with the Sheriff’s assistance, ya gotta love it. When confronted with the situation, Bank of America finally cut the check.

      I use to bank with Bank of America. They always try to lock your money down on the lowest market CD rates. When the bank next door is offering higher interest. I have had friends been told “their savings account did not exist.”
      They had to go home and get their bank statements to prove they had a account at the bank. CROOKS!

      Oh I LOVE it!!! Somewhere when that very first collection call was made or legal paperwork was filed by BOA, they knew these people didn’t owe them squat!!

      For the attorney to fight back like this and kick these crooks at BOA square in the teeth is just sweet!!!

      When a bank or any other commercial enterprise gets too big, these kinds of things happen.

      Time for people to go back to local banking and businesses.

      It is too bad the foreclosure lawyer didn’t keep the bank closed for a day or two as punishment for their bad behavior.

      Another weekend almost gone and still we don’t have our boat in the water. I have to admit to frustration borne of the inability to find some of the simplest information I need in order to put things to rights…….
