In Collier County, Florida, a pair of sheriff’s deputies turned the tables on the mega-bank.
A Bank of America branch there had improperly been involved in a foreclosure lawsuit against a local couple, yet the bank was refusing to pay the couple’s legal fees when it was found to be in the wrong.
So two sherrif’s deputies showed up at a Bank of America branch.
The deputies offered Bank of America a choice: Either the mega-bank pay the couple’s $2,534 legal fees, or they would foreclose on the branch and and seize all of its assets.
Bank of America decided to pay.
