Instead of Bank of America foreclosing on a Florida home. The homeowner had sheriff's deputies foreclose on the bank.
Bank of America had filed foreclosure papers on the homeowner, who didn't owe a dime on their home. They had paid cash for the house.
The homeowners went to court to prove they didn't owe anything on the house. A Collier County Judge agreed they didn't owe anything and never had a mortgage to begin with. Bank of America was ordered by the court to pay the homeowner, Maurenn Nyergers and her husband's legal fees for wrongfully trying to foreclose on their house.
So with several armed Sheriff's deputies, movers and a moving truck in tow, the attorney went to the bank to foreclose. The attorney gave instructions to be ready to remove desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets, even cash in the teller's drawers.
After about an hour of being locked out of the bank manager's office, the attorney was finally handed a check from the bank for the legal fees.
"As a foreclosure defense attorney this is sweet justice" says Allen.
