[Homestead, FL] You know times are tough when people are getting
kicked out of their house when itís not even for sale.
Thatís what happened to Anna Ramirez after she found all of her stuff
out on the front lawn of her Homestead home last week and a strange
man demanding she get out of his newly purchased house.
The eviction came after Ramirezís home was mistakenly auctioned off to
the highest bidder by her bank, Washington Mutual. Usually, you get a
warning before you get the boot. A foreclosure letter. Maybe a sign
saying your house is up for sale. Not Ramirez, who found her
belongings bashed and battered in the street."
"This came out of nowhere," Ramirez said. "The bank took the house
from right under my feet."
The man who bought the house told Ramirez he paid $87,000 for it,
which shocked Ramirez, who bought the house for $260,000.
