First it happened in First National Bank of Wellston Ohio, now this time in W. VA. And once again, the bank isn't coming forward to make it right. Trend???

We have to do more about these things.

There is an organization in Oregon which is helping those who are getting foreclosed upon. In one case the city turned off the water to the house for over year so far but they have banded together to make sure there is water at the house at least for the basics.

And now there is foreclosure mediation that requires banks to sit down with the clients:

It is only by our grace that banks should be allowed in our communities to begin with. We, as a collective should not allow them to abuse us as well.

We need to Occupy!

Why is it that for an institution that deals with accounts of the highest bracket, accountability is always the hardest thing to come by? This is so terrible on two levels. My heart goes out to this lady.
Thank You Roseann.

It sounds like the bank had better start counting their money because they owe this woman a house and all that goes with it. Surely what she lost can not be replaced and I know that is hared for her. That bank needs to pay though. disgusting. For the it was an oops moment but for her it is an emotional loss.
Life would be so much easier if we lived like the rest of the animal world-no possessions, no emotions attached.

I think the reason no petition is yet up is that the bank has not yet been named. It shoudl be possible to find that out. Please, anyone who comes across a petition, share it here. Thanks.

There has to be something the STATE attorney general can do about this. Since every state attorny general has signed on to making these thieves pay, it should be easy.

Banks seem to get away with anything, one has to wonder about the legal system. The bank and the repo company should be treated like common thieves and should have to reimburse the lady and pay for lost personal items. Next they turn around and want to charge for removing 'junk'. This whole situation is absolutely crazy, banks seem to be above the law. I really feel sorry for this lady, she has been let down by the legal system.

It's a little unclear if the Repo company went to the wrong address, having been given the correct address by the bank or whether the error was made by the bank. If it's the mistake of the Repo company, they should be sued for the damages and if not, they should be sued for not disclosing the bank's name. Because the bank is obviously hiding in anonymity. Even if they're not to blame for the mistake with the address, ordering a foreclosure to be carried out like this is vile and they should be held accountable for that.

This is extraordinary! How absolutely despicable!. That bank had better make up for her loss-every doggone penny of it. Reminds me of BP: They make a mess in the Gulf but don't clean it up--just pay fines to the govt.who's got it in their coffers. Everyone in that area lost out. I hope like mad that the lady's bank makes good on this because how rotten a mistake can you make? Furthermore, it shouldn't be all that hard to find out what bank it is. I hope she sues the living daylights out of them--unless they make good on her losses.i
