Couple Forecloses on Bank

Five years ago Charlie and Maria Cardoso paid cash for a house in Spring Hill, Florida. All was going well for them until Bank of America foreclosed on the Cardoso residence. However, it turned out they had foreclosed on the wrong house instead of a house down the street.

Worst of all even after being told it was the wrong house, Bank America proceeded with the foreclosure. The following article details the nightmare the Cardosos experienced due to the negligence of Bank of America. My question is how could they foreclose on a house with no mortgage?

However, that isn’t the end of the story. Today’s front page on the Drudge Report says the Bank of America has been foreclosed on and they are getting a taste of their own medicine.

Bank of America ignored a judge’s order to pay the legal fees of the Cardosos, so the bank was padlocked to get their attention.

  1. Uh, that’s not the same couple. The Cardosos did not foreclose on B of A, the Nyergers did. I don’t know if the Cardosos got justice yet, but perhaps they will now, I bet they’ve heard of the victory that Nyergers had. Maybe they should hire the same lawyer!
