Homeowners Foreclose on Bank

Warren and Maureen Nyerges of Collier County, Florida, didn’t owe a single cent on their house, but that didn’t stop Bank of America from trying to foreclose on it. The Nyerges fought it in court, and won. The court ordered Bank of America to pay court costs and attorneys’ fees, which they didn’t. So the Nyerges foreclosed on the bank:

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.
