Bulldozers and contractors do not just push in and level the place.
Thus, it is very important to:
1) call the police (any thug can claim to be "contractor" and pick-up the stuff)
2) Require contractor to show paper, which gives them authority for the action. Record who is the party, who gave them the job.
3) Assure all the details of the contractor, preferably with the presence of the police, and require contractor to sign any paper showing their
business, date and description of the action they claim to have right to perform. Preferably ask the police officer to act as a witness to the
4) Explain all the parties, the bank does not have any ownership, nor do you have any liabilities for the bank.
5) Ask the contractor, which actions have they taken to assure, the information they have received (from the bank), is correct. Do they have any claim
from the bank? Record any answer they have in the report above. I.e. a) did they verify the job order was legit (if not, you will sue them also), and

severe discrepancies in due diligence, and lack of controls for assuring actual ownership for the properties (and which properties are actually the
What I am most concerned is, in this particular case, the couple did not have mortgage at all, and hence were not even customers of Wells Fargo. How

And for that reason already, the class action should be raised, and the bank brought back to civil order.
