Woman's House Mistakenly Auctioned by Bank


You know times are tough when people are getting kicked out of their house when it’s not even for sale.

That’s what happened to Anna Ramirez after she found all of her stuff out on the front lawn of her Homestead home last week and a strange man demanding she get out of his newly purchased house.

The eviction came after Ramirez’s home was mistakenly auctioned off to the highest bidder by her bank, Washington Mutual (yes, we know WaMu is now Chase, but we’re in denial). Usually, you get a warning before you get the boot. A foreclosure letter. Maybe a sign saying your house is up for sale. Not Ramirez, who found her belongings bashed and battered in the street.

“This came out of nowhere,” Ramirez said. “The bank took the house from right under my feet.”

The whole world is going mad. It’s as though we’re all living in virtual reality.:banghead:

I hope she sues the snot out of the County and wins.

And yet if that family had defended their home from the invading new “owner” and the police, they would be criminals.

Funny you say that, b/c I was thinking the exact same thing when I read the article.

Man, wouldn’t that just ruin your day?
