A Cobb County woman who showed how she canceled her own mortgage to avoid foreclosure has now been indicted for racketeering and theft. Channel 2 investigative reporter Jodie Fleischer first interviewed Susan Weidman last fall.
She showed how she researched her own mortgage to uncover fraud and filed repeated notices with the Cobb County clerk of court. The trail of documents led to one where she canceled her own mortgage by signing her name, on behalf of World Savings Bank.
She said she gave the bank CEO fair warning and asked questions his staff couldn't answer.
In May, Fleischer conducted another investigation that, she said, revealed Weidman filed paperwork taking ownership of a million-dollar foreclosed home in DeKalb County, then rented it to someone else.
