Bankster May Be Changing Tune In Refusal To Cooperate w/ Criminal Probe Of Suspected Crackpot Claiming Adverse Possession To Hijack Vacant F'closures

In Atlanta, Georgia, WSB-TV Channel 2 reports:

  • The foreclosure boom has forced tens of thousands of Georgians from their homes, but a Channel 2 Action News investigation has found one case where the bank is backing down and the woman who says she now owns the home got it for free.

  • Susan Weidman is under indictment in Cobb County and under criminal investigation in DeKalb County. Investigators say she filed court documents declaring a million-dollar foreclosed home to be abandoned and assumed ownership by Adverse Possession -- basically squatters’ rights.

  • Now she appears to have taken over another home in Cumming. Forsyth County sheriff’s deputies told Channel 2 investigative reporter Jodie Fleischer that they did find evidence of a crime and that prosecutors wanted to file charges. The home, at 6645 Shade Tree Way, is owned by Chase Bank. Authorities told Fleischer the bank was not cooperating but that changed once they found out about the Channel 2 investigation.


  • I would hope the victim would come forward so justice will prevail. And that we take these people off the street because ultimately they’re robbing not only from the bank or the owner, but their robbing it from everybody,” said [Forsyth County Sheriff’s Capt. Tim] House.

  • He added, “If other people were to get wind of this type of crime, you could have the copycat out there that’s going to do it. That just creates a major issue for law enforcement and for property owners and property owners’ rights."
