Yes, you read the headline right–a Florida couple foreclosed on a Bank of America branch in Collier County, Florida.
It began when Bank of America tried to foreclose on the couple’s home. The only problem was that the couple paid for their home with cash and had no loan from Bank of America. So, after a lawsuit was brought, the couple was awarded their attorney’s fees against the bank. Despite multiple efforts from the couple’s lawyer to collect, Bank of America never voluntarily paid the judgment against them. The couple then did what the banks do–with the help of the local sheriff, they began seizing the bank’s assets, including computers, file cabinets, and furniture. Ultimately, the Bank of America branch manager wrote the attorney a check for the judgment.
Now that is sweet justice.
