Woman’s house mistakenly sold by bank
A Florida woman said her bank, Washington Mutual, mistakenly auctioned off her house while she was attempting to modify her loan.
Anna Ramirez said she was shocked to be evicted Aug. 12 by a man who had purchased her Homestead house from Washington Mutual, despite the fact that the home should not have been for sale, WPLG-TV, Miami, reported Wednesday.
I have to make sure that you get back in the house because I did reverse the sale but the information the owners received was that the sale wasn't totally reversed, Judge Israel Reyes said.
So it's not totally their fault.
Ramirez, who has moved back into her home, said many of her belongings were damaged by movers and she is seeking a lawyer to take her case.
