At least 160 active members of the U.S. military had their homes “illegally foreclosed upon” by the Bank of America, according to the Justice Department.
While Americans honor their men and women in the armed forces today, the Justice Department announced that Bank of America’s home loan servicing subsidiary will have to pay $20 million to about 160 service members, as part of a settlement agreement. Each service member who lost his or her home in an unlawful foreclose will be paid a minimum of $116,785 — plus compensation for any lost equity that came as a result of the foreclosure. The foreclosures settled today came between 2006 and 2009.
Bank of America agreed to provide information about its foreclosures from mid-2009-2010 and will pay damages in the same minimum amount to those service members whose homes were illegally foreclosed upon during that time period. The review of those foreclosures is on-going
