Oh my gosh this is horrifying. Bad enough it's done to those who are having troubles but to do it to someone wrongfully and then say they won't compensate her retail? They should be compensating her not only retail but a huge settlement for their mistake and her pain & suffering from their idiocy.

Robber banks can apparently do anything, and with police help but the police will do nothing to help those who actually pay their wages. Worse, those who work on police forces (what a terrible definition) are also low paid so should be on the side of the 99% not the 1%.

I think this woman has every right to repossess the bank. Some Sunday morning seize the bank and put all their possessions on a pile in the front yard so they can pick them up Monday morning, including the contents of the vault.

Noted & signed. TY, Candy! I believe that she is due much more than the $18,000 damages for which she is asking bc of the violation of the privacy & sanctity of her home. How dare the bank make such a grievous "error" & expect to get away w/ it! The state attorney general should also be investigating the local police force which took no action whatsoever. Alas; but then this is a mostly red state & the "good ol' boy" system is well entrenched. This is an outrage that can happen to any private citizen as banks become less regulated & more politically powerful across this nation. Does the home you call your own really belong to you; or can some corporate bank come in & take your possessions any time they want? Don't be too complacent that it can't happen wherever you live! These white collar criminals should be in jail!!!

Doublw he** - they should pay ten times what she is asking, and it would still be chump change to them. She should sue them for $180 million.

signed. I hope the police's/banker's family members start to feel the shame brought on by this action. How can you live in a community knowing a wrong has been done by someone in your family and be able to look this poor woman in the eye as if nothing ever happened???
If you don't speak up for this woman, you are winking at evil.

Holy crap! I can't believe this hasn't been resolved yet. Time to march down and host a name change party in front of First National Bank of Wellston. How about Deadbeat Bank of Wellston. Who would want to do biz with this bank anyway? They're not to be trusted. I hope people are pulling their money from this bank. I hope she sues for a helluva lot more than $18K...They had their chance, now she should sue the pants off them.

This happens all the time. The bank has resources to wait it out and the laws are very complicated. First is she may not be the owner of the house. The entity that has her mortgage is the offended party. Her personal belongings run into several problems. If she had insurance she might be able to catalog all her possessions for pennies on the dollar as no insurance company will pay retail. usually this is handled behind subrogation so the public gets no inkling of what is going on.
