PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Imagine paying your mortgage on time every month, and your bank takes your home away anyway.
It may not make any sense, but it’s happening to some homeowners.
Since 2004, Kim Shibles’ beloved home has been the backdrop for everything from holidays to proms and more.
“I would like to have back what they took,” Shibles said.
That is until she was forced out of the house in 2016, after the bank foreclosed.
“It turned my life upside down,” she said.
Her attorney, Josh Denbeaux says it happened without Shibles ever having missed a mortgage payment.
“She paid every single month,” he said.
“We have the largest financial institutions in our country and they are absolutely fleecing America,” mortgage abuse attorney Linda Tirrelli said.
It all started in 2010.
“They solicited me for a modification through the mail,” Shibles said.
Shibles said Bank of America sent her an offer she simply couldn’t refuse – the chance to modify her loan by as much as $600 a month.
