Andre "Loki" Barbosa, Boca Raton Squatter: Biggest. Scrub. Ever.

Andre "Loki" Barbosa, who has taken over a $2.5 million mansion in Boca Raton by exploiting the Byzantine nature of foreclosure Florida property law, may, in fact, be the biggest tool ever. There are many reasons for this conclusion. But the most obvious might be his "about me" on his Facebook page:

"often my wordz fall on death ears niggas b listening but, dnt hear

talking to a nigga he b sitting right here
i b like "were u going"
they b like "YEAH"

Right-o. The word yeah appears to be a very important aspect of the Barbosa communication process. For Barbosa, it takes many permutations. Sometimes, Barbosa says "YEAS" -- like after refueling his car -- and other times he uses "CHeA" to apparently describe his aesthetic when clad in this outfit.

Barbosa also has jokes aplenty. Like this one: "What did one tampon say to da other tampon? Nttn there both stuck up bitches. Haha yeas."

Last week, the Sun Sentinel reported that Barbosa had taken over an opulent, waterside manor in Boca -- and the news quickly went viral, leaping to New York and London. But then on Friday, Bank of America brought the hammer, dispatching some court filings in Palm Beach court to take possession of the residence at 580 Golden Harbour Drive. Barbosa, as well as eight others, were named as defendants.

Since Barbosa has taken on some degree of fame, he's also begun taking himself very seriously. Now, instead of the word CHeA and tampon jokes, he deposits tidbits of Barbosa inspiration onto his Facebook page. On Friday, after it became clear he may soon be evicted, he wrote: "It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light."

Then on Saturday, he pleaded: "Change your thoughts and you change your world. Nothing is impossible, the world itself says 'I'm possible!' "

Barbosa's motives aren't yet clear. It's possible he took over the mansion to deliver a dissident and populist message à la Occupy. Perhaps, he reasoned, by squatting in a giant and flashy mansion, he'll show the inequities coursing through out society.

But then again, that might be taking this guy just a little too seriously.

He is nothing more than a home occupier for a bigger ring leader. This home is not in a secured development and has no gated access. These guys broke into this home and changed the locks to cover up their B&E crime. One has to occupy the home for 7 years AND pay the property taxes. This home's taxes are $39K per year and have been paid bu BOA. BOA has filed for his eviction. This chump is merely a puppet for a ring leader.+

He won't be squatting in this home much longer.

I almost felt bad for the guy, then I see he is just one of those douche bags that no one can stand.

It's not forclosure law...it's property law and I believe he's trying to make a claim of adverse possession. Do a little research...http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fe678

He's not the only one trying this since the real estate meltdown. We're going to start hearing about more than a few of these cases in the next few years where people took control of abandoned properties that the banks ignored.

@KenEsq There have been 38 filings for adverse property control in PB county. I think 3 have gone 7 years and have actually been signed over to the occupants, from what I heard on the news.

@GovtMule @KenEsq I know there were a few people that were fencing properties in the Cape Coral area. The risk, of course, is that you pay the taxes for six years and then lose it all...
