BofA Drags Feet On Undoing Screw-Up After Driving Terminally Ill Senior, Sole-Caregiver Spouse Into Foreclosure For Making House Payment Too Early

In New Port Richey, Florida, the St. Petersburg Times reports:

  • It appears Sharon and James Bullington will have to wait a little longer to learn how Bank of America plans to modify their mortgage. The couple's anxiety hasn't diminished since the bank apologized this week for mistakenly pushing their home into foreclosure despite the couple making their mortgage payment early.

  • Shawn Yesner, the Bullingtons' attorney, said bank officials told him they will call him daily until a resolution is reached. Bank officials told him "they are aggressively working the Bullingtons' file at the highest level … and may not have an answer by week's end."

  • State Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, started calling bank officials about the case Monday. An official told him he'd get an answer Wednesday. No call came. On Thursday, the bank assured Fasano the couple would have details by Friday.

  • "It's concerning and frustrating that it has taken this long to get a simple answer," Fasano said.

  • James Bullington, 78, is terminally ill and bedridden. Sharon, 70, is his sole caregiver.
