Florida Couple Almost Repossesses Bank of America's Furniture

bank of america.jpg
Last year, Warren and Maureen Nyerges, a retired couple in Naples, Florida, were hit with a mistaken foreclosure lawsuit by the Bank of America (remember, it's the Bank of Satan). They had paid cash for their house in 2009, no mortgage, and thus no grounds for a foreclosure suit. The bank dropped the case but never reimbursed the Nyerges for their attorney's fees.

Yesterday, their lawyer and a couple cops went into the local BofA branch and threatened to start taking furniture unless the manager cut a check for the $2,534 in lawyer's fees right then and there. It worked!

Their lawyer, a badass by the name of Todd Allen, said before entering the bank: "I'm leaving the building with either cash, a check or a whole lot of furniture." Allen had tried to wheedle the money out of the bank to no avail; long story short, things degenerated to the point of Allen having to "stride" into the bank with "two burly Collier County sheriff's deputies," a moving company waiting outside to take BofA's stuff. 

The moral of this story is that sometimes, you apparently have to threaten the bank in order to get anything done. After meeting with Allen's posse for an hour, the branch manager wrote the Nyerges a check to avoid the embarrassment of being repossessed by those whose house he had wanted to repossess. Then Allen and the deputies rode off into the sunset, never to be seen around these parts again.

I am living Texas and some bank (name unknown until my attorney finds out the name cause they won't give me anything but a phone number) had my locks broken and a locksmith put new locks on my house while I was out of town.  They claim to have a "lien" against it.  No lien has been filed with the courthouse, and no mortgage on the house since 2006!!!  It is a terrible feeling!!!!  Hope I have an attorney as sharp as this Allen attorney is!!!

ok guys i used to work for bank of america in San Jose Costa Rica , specifically in the credit card department , and i do know what I am writing here. Bank of America is exploiting their employees in San Jose Costa Rica , they are making them work long hours whiteout no rest at all , and paying them very miserable salaries, These people are a bunch of scumbags i HATE them and despise them with all my guts! they are making their employees take an overwhelming amount of calls per day, An average customer service representative takes around 350 calls in a 7 hours day shift!!!!  these sons of bi**ches are burning in hell , they are the worst company here in San Jose Costa Rica to work for!! they are slavering people here!

 Hopefully mistakes like this won't happen again so things like this will be avoided.

There are many instances where a bank or a large corporation will not honor a judgment to see if they can get away with it. In the end the person owed to has to get a lawyer, and a bailiff to collect their dues.

That could not happen to a more deserving bank.  100% of the experience I have had with BoA has demonstrated that they are arrogant, incompetent, and uncaring.

I am not the least bit surprised.  We used BofA for a short time, as did my daughter. However, we got so sick of them sending us my daughter's statements (different last names), and calling them and complaining did nothing.  I even went so far as to find out the VP's names at headquarters and called one and she assured me it would be taken care of.  Alas, no, after a short time we started getting her paperwork - only this time she started getting our statements!  At this point we said 'enough' and cancelled both accounts.  They are useless!  We went with BBandT and have not had a single problem with them. What do you expect though with anything the government touches....

Good luck to Mr Allen. He's going to have ten times more business than he can handle.
