Even those that continue to make payments on a house that no longer exists aren't immune to foreclosure.

Brad Gana, of Seabrook, Texas, is being threatened with foreclosure over a home that hasn't existed since it was destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008, local Houston 2 News reports.

In the meantime, Bank of America, the mortgage lender, took out a forced homeowner's policy on the property and raised monthly payments.
