As readers of UP@NIGHT may know from a previous blog, “The Unpatriotic Corporation,” we here at UP@NIGHT think little of B of A.  It’s a scandal that its name suggests that it is somehow affiliated with our country.   Yesterday we learned that AIG is suing Bank of America.  Here is the beginning of how this event was reported in the NY Times.

The American International Group sued Bank of America on Monday over hundreds of mortgage-backed securities, adding to the surge of investors seeking compensation for the troubled mortgages that led to the financial crisis.

The suit seeks to recover more than $10 billion in losses on $28 billion of investments, in possibly the largest mortgage-security-related action filed by a single investor.

It claims that Bank of America and its Merrill Lynch and Countrywide Financial units misrepresented the quality of the mortgages placed in securities and sold to investors, according to three people with knowledge of the complaint.

This helped make my day in the middle of Monday’s crash.  But to really top it off, as this report from Stewart and Co. reveals, B of A was foreclosed on by a couple of ordinary American citizens.  It doesn’t get much better in these difficult times.

  1. WF foreclosed on my house in the same week my younger sister told me she didn’t think she was going to survive the month. She was dying from ALS. BoA took over the house. I went to court twice but I lost. I didn’t get to see my sister shortly before she died. Words cannot express the pain those banks caused that will never leave my heart.

  2. Candy,

    I am so sorry to hear this. Just awful. It’s a real shame that the government couldn’t step in and help people more in this situation.
