This is how banks roll:
She says all her possessions in Vinton County, Ohio, disappeared when Wellston First National Bank confused her home with the house across the street, foreclosed on it, changed the locks, and then sold or trashed everything — all while she was out of town for two weeks.
“They repossessed my house on accident, thinking it was the house across the street,” Barnett explained to Ohio's 10TV. “They told me that the GPS led them to my house. My grass hadn't been mowed and they just assumed.”
Worse still, Barnett says an itemized list requesting the bank pay her $18,000 so she can replace everything has only been met with ridicule from the bank's president.
From the original story:
No one from the bank would go on camera with 10TV about the incident. The bank president told 10TV News that the bank is trying to come to terms with Barnett.
Now let's look at what happens when cops accidentally do the same thing as banks:
Nebraska police have been ordered to return over $1 million in cash they confiscated during a traffic stop, mistakenly believing it was drug money. Last week, Judge Joseph Bataillon ruled that the cash must be returned to Tara Mishra, 33, who had saved the money during her 15-year career as an exotic dancer.And not just that...
[It] was ordered that Mishra will receive $1,074,000 in cash, including interest.
Banks exist in another universe.
