Default Bank breaks into home - over mortgage payments

Quote:
Nancy Jacobini was home alone in Florida when she heard what she thought was an intruder at the front door. There was no knock. She wasn't expecting anyone, so she grabbed her cell phone and called 911.

As it turns out, the man who broke the lock on her front door was actually a contractor hired by her bank. It is a procedure typically used to secure a foreclosed home. However, Jacobini's home wasn't foreclosed. She tells American Morning's Kiran Chetry how terrifying the experience was for her.

Sounds like a dangerous job, I wonder what happens when one of these guys busts down the door of someone with a gun?

If he is lucky he will only soil his drawers...

The Daily Show had a segment about this and brought up a really good point.

Even if the bank had the right home. You can't lock someone INSIDE their house. It just doesn't work that way.

I hope the bank is charged the same as if I hired someone to illegally change the locks on a house I didn't own.
