Sacrifices have to be made for the greater good sometimes.. And no banker is going to disrespect me like that and get away with it.. He would suffer my wrath.
Watch out folks, we got a bad ass over here.

It's not legal, but its not exactly a crime either.
Its a tort, called conversion, and she needs to get an attorney and pursue this the correct way. If she does that instead of letting the bank bully her into a settlement, she stands to win a LOT more than the retail value of what was taken and sold.
Someone needs to tell her to get an attorney.

That would mean this could be done to any house using the excuse of a mistake.
accidents are what insurance is for - criminal prosecution is for intent.
