Family Loses Belongings in Foreclosure Mixup

Imagine coming home from work to your new home and finding everything gone!
Bobo and Joy Dickson bought a house had been headed for foreclosure, but JPMorgan Chase apparently didn't get the message that the former owners had moved out and the new owners were in residence. So, naturally, they hired a firm to drill the Dickson's locks and take everything they owned, including their food. Now JPMorgan Chase is "taking it seriously."

The prosecutor's office declined to press charges against the reclamation firm, Field Asset Services Inc. saying there was no criminal intent. The Dicksons have filed suit against JPMorgan Chase. Link -via Digg

Seriously... Bobo?

Interesting how someone assumed the family is living in a "poor, (black) neighbourhood". Maybe it's not so bad there. All types of neighbourhoods are foreclosed on these days.

Although I doubt the foreclosure was racially motivated, it's entirely possible that the compensation is less forthcoming due to the financial worth of the victims.

Yeah, no court order? How is that not being criminally prosecuted? Either the reclamation company or JP Morgan or both decided to break the law. Anthony has a point..I'm sure this happens all the time under the radar and in 'less desirable' areas.
