An Ohio woman is dealing with a bad case of mistaken identity after a local bank broke into her home and repossessed her belongings, TheBlaze reported Wednesday.
Seems First National Bank in Wellston, Ohio, meant to foreclose on the house across the street from Katie Barnett's. A GPS unit led bank employees to the wrong door.
Barnett’s house was cleared out. Some of her possessions were hauled away, some were trashed, and some were sold.
Law enforcement officials won’t help (they say it’s a closed case), and the bank won’t help.
Glenn Beck on Thursday was so shocked that a small-town bank would give someone like Barnett the runaround that he could barely contain himself.
“As every day that goes by, First National Bank in Wellston,” he said, “just know you’re sending a very clear message to all those who do business with your bank: you’re not a local bank!”
“The reason to do business with a local bank is because I actually see the people I’m dealing with face to face. And if you’re all dirt bags on the local level, why should I do business with you? If you can’t admit that you made a mistake and make this woman’s life right, there’s no reason to do business with this local bank.”
In fact, I’ll tell you what…on Tuesday, find the other local banks, because I don’t want to tear [First National Bank in Wellston] apart as much as I want to promote a local bank that does business the right way…maybe on Tuesday we start doing commercials for free for all of the local banks in that area.
That certainly may get the message across:
