This is the best thing ever.
Bank of America tries to foreclose on your home. You owe Bank of America 0 dollars and in fact never have owed them more than that because you paid for the house outright. The case goes to court, where you easily win. Bank of America is ordered to pay your legal bills. Five months pass, but there’s no sign of any money from Bank of America. You call, you write, you do whatever you can do to get Bank of America’s attention, and still…nothing. Having had it up to here or higher, you call in the Sheriff’s department, some movers and even bring your lawyer along and since they haven’t paid you, you essentially foreclose on the Bank of America branch that started this mess.
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.
That, in a word, is fabulous! It would make my life if things like this became something everybody did. It would be even better if these lending institutions actually investigated things properly before dragging innocent people into court for no good reason and potentially ruining their lives, but hey, we’ve gotta start small.
Congratulations to the Nyergers family on a job well done, and a good, hearty fuck off to Bank of America.
