Homeowner Credits Occupy D.C. With Saving Her Home from Bank of America / Freddie Mac

BOWIE, Md. – A Maryland woman has been fighting the foreclosure of her Bowie home for nearly two years. But after rallying with the Occupy D.C. movement, things are looking up.

Bertina Jones has owned her home for 14 years. But when she lost her job in 2010, she knew things would be tight. So she says she was proactive. She reached out to her bank, Bank of America, and they were able to work out a permanent loan modification.

Jones says she filled out all the paperwork, sent in $12,000 and began to make monthly payments. But about four months later, Jones says Bank of America told her they never received her paperwork, returned her $12,000 and said they were moving forward with a foreclosure.

“It was disheartening to think that you’re going to lose something that you worked 14 years for,” she says.

But Jones couldn’t understand the reasoning behind the foreclosure and refused to give up.

“Just because they do something, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right. You need to fight for your home, you need to fight.”

Rest here…

    BOA is very sad indeed. It must be a management decision: “No one will see how badly we abuse people, no one will notice” Pure corporate sociopathy, courtesy of BofA. OCCUPY!
