Jan. 2 (UPI) — A Las Vegas woman says she needs more than an apology and $5,000 from a real estate company that carted away all her belongings in a mistaken foreclosure.
Nilly Mauck, 31, says she returned to her condominium from a Colorado ski trip to find that in addition to her couch, bed, dining room set and computer missing, irreplaceable documents such as her father’s military records, family photographs and her own immigration, medical and financial records had been hauled away, the Las Vegas Sun reported Saturday.

The real estate company, the Brenkus Team of Henderson, Nev., had admitted it meant to foreclose on a neighboring condo and initially offered Mauck $5,000, but she told the Sun that only added insult to injury.
“They came into my home and violated my dignity,” she said, indicating she is instead seeking $200,000 and asserting it is “the memories that were taken” that upsets her most.
