We saw the shocking story last month. An Ohio woman's every earthly possession was carted away from her home while she wasn't there by a bank who went to the wrong house to  repossess. Ohio bank steals woman's possessions by 'mistake,' then refuses to pay up

Well now the exact same thing has happened to a Logan, West Virginia woman named Nikki Bailey.

Mark Plants Kanawha County Prosecutor: "A lot like taking someone's luggage my mistake at the airport. If I take black bag. a black piece of luggage and I get home and I realize once I'm home that this is not my bag, well this is not a crime this is an accident."

Homeowner Nikki Bailey's best friend Patty Fot: "Her life has been ripped out because there's no laws to protect these kind of situations. There's no law-no crime to charge these people with. They're getting away with it!"

Our laws still allow sloppy bankers to steal.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
