Las Vegas Woman Victim of Foreclosure Mistake

LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas woman says she was the victim of a horrible mistake that left her with an empty condominium and a lot of questions.

Nilly Mauck lived in her condominium for two years and said she never had problem until a series of strange events eventually led to a company coming into her home and throwing away everything she owned.

As Mauck walks around her now empty condo, she can't help but remember how things used to look. Every room in the home is empty and Mauck says the reason is a mistake of address numbers. Her address is 1157, which is right next to 1156, a condo that is in foreclosure.

Attorney Claims Woman is Inflating her Loss in Foreclosure Mix Up

LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas woman's story of losing everything because of a foreclosure mix up is now being disputed.

8 News Now reported Nilly Mauck's story Monday. Mauck said a mix up in addresses caused a local realtor to think her condominium was a foreclosure and had all of her belongings removed.

Now, an attorney for the realtor involved in the case is speaking out. The attorney and realty group believe the victim is trying to get more bang for her buck because of an obvious mistake by the realty group. However, there now appears to be even more confusion over a set of pictures of the apartment before it was cleared.
