honestly it was probably the lawyer that got screwed or rather funded his own publicity. See the bank doesn't care really and didn't wanna spend man power (that equals money) on sorting the stuff out so they saved money. The lawyer probably knew he would win so didn't charge the couple up front. After the bank didn't pay he had to have known this was an option and held off on the couple paying him and went after the bank. So in the end the bank lost 2,500 and something bucks to them that's probably less then the cost of employees doing their job. It just shows how much we get the shaft from them and how much they care.

AWESOME!! Kudos for that couple and the attorney that wasn't intimidated by the bank. It's about time these financial institutions get back what they've been dishing out to the public for years!

With all their bogus fees, predatory loans, refusals to refinance home values hit by this recession, there are still a lot of other shady bank practices they're getting away with.

Some Florida foreclosure lawyers are advertizing "Free House" defense services against banks. Typically the banks eventually win but the delinquent owners get extra time to save for their next house and no bad credit if they prevail. The Lawyers charge about $500 a month for this kind of defense so its not really free. I suppose if the success rate increases everybody that is upside down on their mortgage might try this.

Banks have been at the top of the food chain for too long. They've even managed to take advantage of the US Government along with EVERY SINGLE citizen who lives in America through the Federal Reserve. The Feds wield MORE power than any sitting President.

The best thing I've seen happen lately is how Obama changed the rules on overdrafts. Now I have the choice whether to accept a small loan to cover a purchase that costs $35 in fees. Before it was always a worry. Overdrafts have cost me hundreds from just a couple small mistakes. I opted OUT. I don't have overdraft protection and I've never been happier.

The Judge awarded them 2500 that's all for this. For a year and a half in court.. First off what Lawyer only charges 2500 for a year and half ? Next why such a low amount for this huge transgression.. I'm starting to really hate the Judges They put people in Jail for far less, but when it comes to the Banks its always the same a slap on the wrist.. I'm glad the people got a little Justice, but man we have a long way to go..

You guys was it the Lawyer who was getting is money or the home owners getting reimburse for there legal fee's,

It wouldn't matter if it was a $1 reimbursement; it's nice to see a bank have to face the law when violating their customers. How many people get screwed by these guys everyday. Yet another reason to take your business to a local bank.

I wish they would have been able to get the bank manager on video when the deputies told him they were going to load up his office into a moving truck.

This is awesome! Now, if only more people would fight back like this, maybe we could get things to turn around. The problem is, most people have no idea about the legal aspects of their mortgages. These people paid in cash, so this story is about BOA just reaching as far as they can to get away with whatever people will let them get away with... But if more people with mortgages that are being forclosed on would just STAY in their homes and fight back, there could be a domino effect...

DON'T LEAVE YOUR HOMES!

S&F for sure!

Ya Del, I'm glad they got justice, don't get me wrong I love it that BAC is finally getting a dose of there own medicine, But how can the Judge even live with himself when this family was damaged so badly, 2500 is a joke, but its better then nothing!!!

This is great. I wish more stories like this would pop-up, not to have people go through the stress of dealing with legal battles, but to take from the bank what the bank has taken from thousands of people. Those greedy banksters, especially Bank of America need to be shown a little humility. Sweet justice...

So he only got exactly what the bank owed him? What type of late fees or other fees did he charge the bank?

That's great, all that wasted time and energy and hassle just to get what you are due and only what you are due. I think the bank owes them more money.

Charging the bank late fees on top of what they owed would have even been sweeter!

This is what happens when the Banks think they are bigger than the courts. well the uncorrupted ones

WOW!! I was grinning from ear to ear watching the video. Makes me happy to see a bank actually be held accountable and be treated the same way they treat others. Sure the bank aint out nothing, but thanks to the public display, everyone in the area knows that that particular branch tried to screw someone and got nicked. It also shows people that you can do the same thing to them that they are doing to us!

S@F!!
