Comedic reporting from The Daily Show’s John Oliver provides a hilarious take on a painful public relations fiasco for Bank of America Corp.
Warren and Maureen Nyerges told Oliver that they had no mortgage with BofA. But the bank began foreclosing on their property anyway.
So they hired Todd Allen, who became a lawyer just eight months ago, and foreclosed on a local BofA branch.
Accompanied by the sheriff and two moving men, Allen claims he walked into the branch and said, “You’ve been foreclosed.”
A previous report indicated that BofA had failed to pay $2,534 in attorney fees ordered by a Collier County, Fla., judge to the Nyerges — who relented once given a check in the amount of $5,773.
