I don't see where you would have been tricked out of your home by your mortgage company. Even if they were able to sell it for an amount equal or above what you owed, they still had some pretty major expense in taking it back and getting it back on the market. Banks and mortgage companies are in business to make money - a profit, and part of their loss was the revenue they did not make from the interest on the payments you were unable to make.
There is life after foreclosure. At some point, with your credit back on track, you can get another mortgage and own a home again. Today many of us are paying a price, some through the loss of their homes, for the easy credit we've had the past few years. Lenders are being much more conservative with the loans they make these days, and that probably is a good idea for home-buyers too.
