It’s hard not to chuckle at this story: Bank of America tries to foreclose on a couple’s house, even though they don’t owe a cent. The couple fights BoA in court, and wins — but then BoA fails to pay the legal fees and court costs. So what does the wronged couple do? Precisely what the bank would have done: They seized the banks assets.
“They’ve ignored our calls, ignored our letters, legally this is the next step to get my clients compensated, ” attorney Todd Allen told CBS.
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.
