Rogue Banks: Foreclose First, Ask Questions Later
We’ve all heard these horrifying reports of gung ho cops (usually narcs) who come crashing into somebody’s home, and hold the terrified occupants at gunpoint while they ransack the house and wreck everything. And then they find out they’ve got the wrong address.
And now some Bank of America executives have decided “Cool. I wanna try that too!”
Charlie and Maria Cardoso, of Massachusetts, purchased a retirement home in Florida in 2005. They paid cash for it. They’re still living in Massachusetts, using their Florida house as a rental property in the meantime.
Bank of America officials changed the locks on their Florida house, confiscated some of their possessions, and intimidated their tenant (a single mother with two children) into moving out. They also disconnected the utilities, causing the pipes to freeze.
You guessed it — wrong house. Bank of America got the Cardosos’ house mixed up with a house across the street, ten doors down. DUH!! Do you want those assholes handling YOUR finances?
Mistakes happen, but this wasn’t just simple carelessness. The Bank of America real estate agent discovered the error in plenty of time, and kept warning his “superiors” that they had the wrong house. Didn’t matter.
The “mix-up” started last July. Every time Charlie Cardoso called the bank to ask what the F#$%&!#! problem was, he was told “Oh OK, our mistake. We’ll take care of it, don’t worry.”
After six months of this bullshit, Charlie Cardoso and his son finally drove to Florida to deal with the bank in person. By making this journey, they had to miss the homecoming of the Cardosos’ other son, who was coming home on a two-week leave from Iraq.
The Cardosos have a lawsuit against Bank of America. Soak the bastards.
Capitalism has Never Worked! Every time it’s been tried, it’s failed miserably. Every country that’s ever flirted with this disastrous economic policy — has collapsed!
