Hi Wanda, sounds like there were multiple offers on a foreclosure property. In this case, there is a lot of communication while the offers are being prepared to send to the foreclosure bank. Frequently the only one that gets a notification is the offer that is accepted. Not saying this is good practice but it does happen. My guess is that you were not the winning bid. If you were, the bank's agent would have been very quick to notify you as such.
Not defending, but this does happen.
