The First National Bank of Wellston for this:
An Ohio bank is refusing to reimburse a Vinton County woman whose house they unjustly repossessed while she was out of town. Katie Barnett recently returned home after being away for two weeks to find that the lock on her door had been changed. She crawled in through the window to find all of her stuff missing.
Barnett suspected she had been robbed — and she wasn’t too far off. It seems that, while Barnett was gone, the First National Bank of Wellston arrived at her place of residence, broke in, and took possession of all her belongings, including the house.
Except, as it later turned out, they had the wrong address. [...]
With all of her stuff either sold off by the bank or thrashed, the homeowner presented the bank’s president with an $18,000 estimate for restitution.
He refused to pay up.
“He got very firm with me and said, ‘We’re not paying you retail here, that’s just the way it is,’” Barnett recalled. “I did not tell them to come in my house and make me an offer. They took my stuff and I want it back.”
As Cliff Schecter said on Facebook, this is theft. Plain and simple. And there ought to be criminal charges in addition to restitution for what was stolen and destroyed.(Presented by mortgage calculator)
