OWS Steals A Man’s House

OWS Steals A Man’s House

OWS protesters who decided to occupy a foreclosed home in Brooklyn, N.Y., are victimizing a struggling father who was working to save his home from foreclosure.

OWS protesters announced last month that they moved a homeless family into a “foreclosed” Brooklyn home. The house actually belonged to a struggling single father desperately trying to renegotiate his mortgage, according to The New York Post.

“They’re trying to take a house and say the bank is robbing the people because the mortgage is too high — so contact the owner!” said Wise Ahadzi, 28, who owns the home.

Ahadzi reportedly purchased the house for $424,500 in 2007 before the housing bubble burst and the market price plummeted to $150,000. He told The Post he lost his job as a day trader in 2009 and couldn’t meet his mortgage payments. The man moved with his two young daughters to a small apartment while he was working with the bank to renegotiate his mortgage.

Instead of helping Ahadzi reclaim his property, the OWS group reportedly moved in a “homeless family” who were affiliated with the protest movement and have taken over the house.
