Losing Your House Over $300?

This seems a bit ridiculous to me. Really, I wonder if there's some kind of under-the-table deal going on with the parties involved here. This just seems too ridiculous to be legit. You can read the entire article here.

A woman who has lived in a Salt Lake City home for the past 15 years is in danger of losing the house -- due to a $300 dental bill that went unpaid over a decade ago.

Ramos purchased the home for approximately $51,000 in the early 1990s. In 1995, the $300 dental bill went unpaid and a collections agency eventually filed a lawsuit against her.

Ultimately, the courts ordered the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office to sell the home as real estate to pay off the dental debt -- which by that time had reached $958.

At an auction, the home sold for a mere $1,550 to a firm called Jarmac Properties.
