Talk about turning the tables on a bank? Well, this Florida couple beats the bank with its own game.

You have to celebrate when the underdog sticks it to a big corporation in the wrong, and that’s just what happened to Bank of America – big time. After the company wrongfully tried foreclosing on a house, the homeowner turned the tables and foreclosed on the bank branch itself.

Warren and Maureen Nyerges were in danger of having their Collier County home taken away by the bank, but the foreclosure claim missed one important fact: The Nyergeses had paid for the home in cash.

So they took the banking giant to court and a year and a half later, the foreclosure was dropped. The judge also ordered Bank of America to pay the couple $2,534 in legal fees, CBS News reported.

Five months passed, and Bank of America hadn’t paid the couple. That’s when the couple’s attorney, Todd Allen, decided to give the bank a taste of its own medicine.

Days later, sheriff’s deputies and moving vans appeared at the Bank of America branch.

“I instructed the deputy to go in and take desks, computers, copiers, and filing cabinets, including cash in the drawers,” Allen told WINK.

Allen was reportedly locked out of the bank manager’s office while the manager tried to figure out what to do.

“Having two Sheriff’s deputies sitting across your desk, and a lawyer standing behind them, demanding whatever assets are in the bank can be intimidating,” Allen said. “But, so is having your home foreclosed on when it wasn’t right.”

Bank of America finally handed over a check to the couple, and no furniture or other items were seized. The bank apologized and said the check went to an attorney who was no longer in business.

Allen said banks often don’t follow through in certain foreclosure cases.

“As a foreclosure defense attorney, this is sweet justice,” Allen added.
