These foreclosure companies are so greedy they'll break the law on purpose hoping they can get away with something! These people's boat was probably sold before they hauled it out of the barn. We need to get legislation to put more safeguards in place to avoid this greediness!

You're right Fred. One of my neighbors was forclosed on. He was 85 yrs. old and alone, moved to Vegas where he had a relative and was coming back in 2 weeks to load up his truck with some more things. The foreclosing bank hired a realtor immediately, the realtor hired some crew to take everything away except the appliances. I asked them where they were taking things because I knew the neighbor was coming back and they told me to the "dump." I don't believe them at all, nice 12 yr. old home, nice furnishings too.

Hope he sued. The bank was totally out of line for moving in so fast and doing away with his belongings.

I urge every American to get a gun and learn how to use it to defend your home. Whether you get a concealed carry license is up to you. The important thing is to be able to defend your house and home.

So you are advocating shooting foreclosure agents that make a mistake. Nothing wrong with that picture.

I would shoot anyone who illegally enters my property to steal my stuff. Of course, I think that I would be able to convince a foreclosure agent to leave without actually having to shoot.

Now, why is the word "allegedly" in this headline, when the contracting company admitted its mistake. The owner will be compensated.

Usually, the headline leaves out allegedly when there's a dispute and reports as facts one person's story.

Isn't the Ohio base Safe Guard Properties one of Boehner's major contributors to the Republican Party ? I'm very surprised this poor guy is getting anything back.

It takes a lot of balls (and luck) to walk into a persons home and not get shot! Whatever the dog doesn't kill I will..

I completely agree. If someone gets past my 80lb doberman, I will give them props and then promptly finish them off.

Big talk if you are home at the time. Have you actually ever killed anyone? When the time comes it might not be as easy as you think to have eye contact and then shoot to kill. If the person breaking in is a criminal, not a law abiding citizen performing his legal job but who just made a mistake, any hesitation by you might result in your death. Are any of your belongings worth dying for?

When people steal your property, they are stealing part of your LIFE, because you had to expend time, part of your limited lifespan in acquiring the property. Not to mention the feeling of violation people have after having their home broken into. So, unless everything you have was given to you through entitlements, welfare, etc. it does you great harm when someone breaks into your residence and takes your things.

I imagine that a gun will buy enough time to get the problem resolved. If it actually comes to shooting, then shooting the tires might be enough.

our government needs to look into companys like safegarud and take a closer look at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and some banks.sounds like someones getting some kick backs. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac won't look for better companys that can save them and the banks money.they don't care and the reason they don't care is because its government money and the taxpayer is flipping the bill.theses companys they make money making repairs on the homes after they are vacated so they don't really care what happens.

What does this have to do with Obama? The mortgage crisis was in full swing before he was ever inaugurated in 2009. My home had lost 50% of its value by the end of 2008, as had my retirement investments. If you sadsacks can't come up with anything real, jut STefU.

Yup, it started after the Dems took over both houses of Congress in 2006. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd (both Dems) forced banks, Fannie, and Freddie to make loans to people who could never repay them. Bush tried to stop this but the Dem-controlled Congress moved forward.
01:30 AM on 03/16/2013
Three times Bush McCain and others tried to tell franks committee, And Dodds about housing crisis. They also told the black caucus Maxcine and friends said mac and mae are fine. Look it up you asked for something real. This started with carter. Then clinton sent it into hyper speed. Goldman Sacs figured out how to bundle the bad loans. And we all know how embedded they are with the Government. After all Goldman and Woody Wilson in 1913 started the Federal Reserve. Hope that helps Sandi K H H

I worked at Safequard. These erors ar emore common that you think. The company makes money by paying as little as it an to the contractors who monitor the proeprties.
In one instance, Safequard Proeprties was watching the wrong home after a foreclusrue in Florida. It was a $ 1.4M proeprty. The problem, they were watching the wrong house while thieves systematically stripped $ 175,000 ov cabinets, fixtures, lights and moldings over a period of months. National City Bank (now PNC) didn't seem concerned as the government footed the loss. I one proeprty, they entered a families home monitoring it for over a years when the real property next door was just an undeveloped field. When attempts were made to notify the President of the company each and every time such descrepancies were found or trespassers occured, I was told not to worry about it... Its a shame. The company doesn't make money afequarding homes, they nmmake money making repairs on the homes after they are vacated.

First, I would like to know where the home owners where during the process. You have to mark and do many things before an auction. Maybe vacation but I still think story is a little out there.
09:58 PM on 03/15/2013
It is not an auction. If the home is determined to be vacant, then the personal property inside is hauled away. It can be sold at an auction site later, discarded or any number of things. Generally if it is over a certain dollar amount, it must have a personal property eviction, but that is easy.
That being said, it would have taken a crew of workers a period of time ( a day, two days) to clear the property out so it should have been noticed by someone.
10:05 PM on 03/15/2013
How would any homeowner know in advance these banks and forclosure companies are going to accidentally target their Barn? When these forclosure companies screw-up they should be charged with breaking and entering and theft.
