Unfortunately, you description of what transpired is not detailed enough to determine what recourse you may have against Bank of America. I think you were aware of the foreclosure sale approaching from your description. Bank of America did not need to authorize the "attempt" to short sell the property or advertise a short sale. So the question is did what ever "you say" Bank of America "agreed to" with regards to a short sale constitute a cancellation of the foreclosure or a "deceptive practice"? You need to contact an attorney versed in foreclosure law to review the details of the situation and advise you and you need to do it quickly. The new owner is not a party to the transaction with Bank of America. Therefore, if you have any chance of unwinding the sale prior to an eviction you will have to move quickly. If you intend to rely on the internet to address this then you should start packing. I wish you luck.

The submitter accepts the risk of relying on such an incomplete answer and waives any claims of damages for doing so. As stated in the answer the submitter should contact a qualified bankruptcy attorney is discuss these issues further before any action is taken. Any action taken without advise and counsel of a qualified attorney is inadvisable.
