Bank of America Makes Another Boo Boo!

My friend Leigh brown in Charlotte, N.C. had clients who purchased a Bank of AMerica Short Sale.  AFTER closing BoA sends the Trash It Team out to the house!

The Trash It Team is industry jargon, for the guys who go in to "take the trash out" on foreclosed homes.  Typically they only go into homes that the bank ACTUALLY owns.  These people often need to break locks to enter homes, because the bank does not have the key.  Foreclosed homes are often very messy.  People often take anything that is not nailed down and leave every piece of garbage they don't want.

So no one would ever dream that the home they own would be invaded by a Trash Out Team!  Just the thought of this is scary.  Imagine coming home to find every belonging you own, gone!

Here's a TRUE story as told by Leigh.

Protect yourself folks!  Friends don't let friends deal with Bank of America!

That is horrible!  I recently received a new foreclosure from a bank (won't give the name/I work for them quite a bit!) but they wanted me to get the house re-keyed and trashed out.  I didn't do this because, i had personally sold that house, cash the month before from the bank that was ordering the work!  I had to go to the title company and pull title work and deed to get the process stopped!

Well what another fine mess BOA has started.  As I commented on Kristal's post I wonder if a law suit is in the works?

I can't even imagine what horrier that would be to just purchase a home and come home to your home broken into and everything missing.
