Score Another For Media; Bankster Backpeddles On 'Land Grab' F'closure Attempt Of Business Owner One Day Late On Mtg. Payment After Published Story

In St. Petersburg, Florida, the St. Petersburg Times reports:

  • It looks like Saji Mathew will get to keep his gas station, at least for now. The 41-year-old man faced foreclosure after missing a mortgage payment on the gas station by just one day. He made several attempts to continue paying and made a $50,000 offer in court earlier this week to settle the case that the bank refused.

  • On Thursday, a day after the St. Petersburg Times published an article detailing the saga, the bank, BB&T, said it would suspend the foreclosure action and work with Mathew to clear up the case. Mathew was elated to hear the news.
