Fighting the Bank

New, 3 comments

The Bay Citizen brings us word of a woman in Berkeley who lost her home of 27 years to foreclosure, and then fought to get it back. Tanya Dennis hired a locksmith so that she could break back into her home, and then squatted in it until it became hers again. Friends rallied, a shareholders meeting was disrupted and 1,500 emails were sent to Wells Fargo demanding that the bank negotiate, amongst other tactics. And it worked! The bank says its going to reduce her principal balance by "more than $100,000." "If we can resolve this situation, I think everyone will be happy," said Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Goyda.
