Renter-Family Given 5 Minutes Notice Before Getting 'Screw-Up Triggered' Foreclosure Boot From Home Landlord Bought For All Cash From Foreclosing Bankster Several Years Earlier; Fear Of Arrest Keeps Victims Out Of Improperly-Seized Premises

In Charlotte, North Carolina, WSOC-TV Channel 9 reports:

  • Frank Cole was shocked to get a call from his wife in tears Thursday. She explained that sheriff's deputies were at their rented home in west Charlotte and were forcing them to get out.

    "The sheriff was giving her five minutes to pack some things and leave and apparently, we've been evicted," Cole said. "They left all kinds of embarrassing kinds of papers all over the door and windows and stuff."

    Since the homeowner, Allison Brown, had paid cash for the home several years ago, this seemed impossible to both her and the Cole family.

    The Cole family had been receiving letters about foreclosure proceedings threatening eviction, but they were addressed to Arthur and Kim Felder, the previous homeowners, who lost the home to foreclosure years ago. The Cole family did what most would in the incident in receiving wrongly addressed mail and sent the letters back.

    Channel 9 obtained the eviction order and it has the Felders' names on it and not the Cole family. Brown, an Asheville resident, bought the home after the bank foreclosed on it.

    Similar to the Cole family, Brown is upset about this unexpected eviction and the manner in which it was handled.

    "So get this, I am not allowed on property. They threatened my property manager to get off. My tenants are in a motel, and I can't seem to get any answers," Brown said.

    Several calls were made to the Hunover Law firm, who Eyewitness News was told ordered the eviction, but no contact was made. Cole said he has called them too, and wants answers and his family back in his home.

    Until then, going back to their home is out of the question.

    "Because it is a court order, it still stands and until that order is rescinded, we cannot go into the house or we risk being arrested," Cole said.(1)
