When Bank of America tried to foreclose on Collier County (FL) homeowners Warren and Maureen Nyerges, the couple went to court to prove they never had a mortgage to begin with, having paid in cash.
It took a year, but the pair won their case, and the judge ordered Bank of America to cough up the legal fees. When, after five months, the bank still hadn’t given the Nyergerses a dime, the couple went to their local branch to collect — bringing a foreclosure defense lawyer, Sheriff’s Deputies, and moving trucks along with them.
Turning the tables on Bank of America, attorney Todd Allen instructed his entourage to seize the bank’s assets. “I instructed the deputy to go in and take desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets, including cash in the drawers,” Allen told WINK News. After a standoff that lasted about an hour, the bank manager cut the couple a check, and Bank of America apologized for the delay, blaming an attorney who went out of business.
“As a foreclosure defense attorney this is sweet justice,” said Allen, “because this is a symptom of a larger problem.”
