WINK News reported a story about a couple who had deputies foreclose on Bank of America after the bank filed foreclosure papers on the couple
who did not owe a single penny for their Golden Gate Estates home. Before
this situation occurred, the couple bought and paid for a home, which
Bank of America owned. Because the home was paid with cash, the couple
had never acquired a mortgage.
When the couple received notice of the
foreclosure filed against them, they hired a foreclosure defense attorney who attempted
to contact the bank regarding the situation various times. Bank of America
failed to answer or return any calls and ignored various letters sent
through the mail. After five months, the couple and their lawyer decided
to take the next step.
Deputies appeared at Bank of America, equipped with moving trucks, and
stated that they were seizing the bank’s assets. During this time,
deputies and the couple’s attorney sat with the bank manager. After
an hour, Bank of America issued a check and agreed to pay for the couple’s
attorney fees. Additionally, Bank of America apologized for their actions
and the couple’s wait on payment.
According to the couple’s lawyer, banks do not always do their due
diligence. As a result, consumers should always take necessary steps to
ensure banks and creditors do not take advantage of their trust.
