From Dale  - BFCSA MemberAugust 29 at 6:50pm I want Westpac and Suncorp in front of a Royal Commission after our income figures were exaggerated by both Banks to get our loan across the line for the same property. Guess what the exaggeration was similar but one Bank slightly higher because we needed more money from one than the other so the percentage of fraudulent figures were changed to suit the required percentage to have the loan approved. After an extended period of pursuing ASIC over the banks NON prudence in the way they had conducted their verification process we finally gave up and took the FOS avenue. They are very Bank weighted but we did have both Banks found guilty of maladministration in lending. The thing I find most interesting in the FOS findings is that they had found both Banks had committed the same offence and yet our case...

Two million Aussies are experiencing high financial stress 26 August 2016   https://theconversation.com/two-million-aussies-are-experiencing-high-financial-stress-64367   A new study shows two million Australians are experiencing high financial stress which prevents them from coping in difficult situations, for example, in paying unexpected expenses such as a big mobile phone bill or the fridge breaking down. Adults face these sorts of scenarios frequently. When they arise, people usually turn to savings, a credit card, or a friend or family member to help out. Our report, Financial Resilience in Australia, funded by the National Australia Bank, quantifies the amount of Australians: experiencing problems paying debts; meeting the costs of living; and accessing appropriate, affordable and acceptable financial products and services. It also shows some Australians have trouble accessing social support in times of crisis and may have low levels of financial knowledge. Our research measured financial resilience by the four key resources that support it: personal...

Consumer advocates sceptical of Coalition banking tribunal plan Bill Shorten:  "Mr Turnbull more concerned about Banks than he is about Consumers.  What is he afraid of?" A group of consumer advocates has warned Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that a proposed new banking tribunal could deliver worse outcomes and bigger delays, creating confusion about legal options for customers. First proposed by a group of Coalition backbench MPs campaigning against perceived "banking bastardry", Mr Turnbull said last week the government would consider the proposed body while Treasurer Scott Morrison and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce have also flagged support. The idea, floated by Nationals senator John Williams and Queensland MP Warren Entsch, comes as Labor pursues the government over its plans for a royal commission into Australia's banking and financial sector. In a letter to Mr Turnbull, senior ministers, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, independent senator Nick Xenophon, and four consumer and financial advocacy groups said the...

ASIC DATABASE MUST NOT BE SOLD OFF.    Another Insane Idea from Morrison and Treasury Private Corporation details and Directors details must remain in the province of the regulatory.  Has Malcolm again lost the plot????  Besides ASIC are notoriously lazy and have never demonstrated a knowledge of how to protect consumers and ASICKERs therefore need to keep their jobs as librarians in charge of corporate licencing records.  What else could ASIC possibly be useful for?   Investigation: ASIC fees highest in world, even before data sale August 27, 2016 http://www.michaelwest.com.au/asic-fees-highest-in-world/   Australia is perilously close to slipping behind Bangladesh and Cambodia as the most costly place in the world to access corporate information. Already, in this vital area of public policy, we trail the likes of war-torn Libya, Cameroon, Colombia, Ethiopia and Bolivia.  Globally, this nation ranks as the cellar-dweller of public policy on data access.

The world’s biggest professional services firm by annual revenues had been accused of failing to catch a multibillion-dollar conspiracy between executives at Taylor, Bean & Whitaker, a defunct mortgage lender, and counterparts at Colonial Bank, an Alabama-based lender that supplied TBW with loans.   PwC gave the bank’s parent, Colonial BancGroup, a clean audit opinion for six years until it collapsed in 2009, when it emerged that...

Morning Briefing: Consumers easily manipulated by financial advice, study reveals Consumers easily manipulated by financial advice, study revealsMany consumers are unable to tell the difference between good and bad financial advice, even for the most simple advice, a new study has revealed.A major study conducted by the University of Sydney found that a large proportion of Australians are unable to gauge if they are receiving trusted financial advice from a professional financial adviser, even for the most basic decisions. “We found that people on the whole, were able to tell the difference between good and bad advice on the topics that were relatively straightforward such as paying off credit card debts,” University of Sydney Business School Professor, Susan Thorp, said. “But when it came to more complicated decisions, like superannuation investments, far fewer people were able to tell the difference between good and bad advice.”The study, which has led to the university calling...

A Thought Provoking look at the Blame Game and the Banks the Centre of unpalatable accusations of masterminding the biggest fraud this nation has ever experienced.  Brokers and Borrowers are the pawns in this Monster Bank Fraud.  BFCSA Members have the collective evidence contained in over 2000 files. The question is: Does the Banking Industry in Australia now rely on mortgage fraud to underwrite its profits?  YES indeedy!   The legal mess associated with mortgage fraud in Australia By DC Strategy March 29, 2016    Well, now it might really be happening – but not for the reasons many people believe. And once you understand the real reasons, you will see that this will have potentially serious ramifications for the whole financial sector in Australia. The facts are that Australian housing prices are declining in early 2016 although the price changes vary dramatically by region and by state. Interestingly this price...

Fraudulent loans point to due diligence problems at Australia’s major banks May 9, 2016   Pat McConnell https://theconversation.com/fraudulent-loans-point-to-due-diligence-problems-at-australias-major-banks-59085   Just last month, the US Department of Justice (DOJ), fined Goldman Sachs over AU$6.7 billion and Wells Fargo over AU$1.6 billion for “improper mortgage lending practices” specifically securitising and selling Residential Mortgage Backed Securities (RMBS) based on bad mortgage loans. For example, Goldman Sach’s due diligence processes were judged to be deficient “In securitizing and issuing the RMBS, Goldman … made representations to investors in offering documents about the characteristics of the underlying loans and Goldman’s process for reviewing and approving loan originators. [And …] significant percentages of the loans reviewed did not conform to the representations made to investors about the pools of loans to be securitized, and Goldman also received certain negative information regarding the originators’ business practices.” Banks make a motsa out of asset securitisation, earning money on fees...

Mixed emotions for WA farmer rescued by One Nation Senator Rod Culleton   27 August 2016 Colin Bettles http://www.theland.com.au/story/4123167/mixed-emotions-for-wa-farmer-rescued-by-one-nation-senator-rod-culleton/?cs=4941   SEVERAL rotting, weather-beaten straw bales - some would say hay bales - sit idly, parked at the side of the road in the front yard of Bruce Dixon’s sheep and grain farm at Cuballing in WA. The once golden straw bundles are now frayed and decayed and increasingly captured by a dark grey complexion that dulls their exterior coating, like gathering storm clouds. On the surface, these common farm packages seem obsolete and meaningless but to Mr Dixon they’re like mercenary warriors taking a well-deserved rest, after claiming a strategic victory in a long-running battle against adversity. The discarded bundles of straw are a stark reminder of tense events on Black Friday in March last year when an unusual band of rural characters staged an unconventional protest that helped resuscitate his...

Labor Senator Sam Dastyari claims Tony Abbott is positioning himself for a leadership challenge   28 August 2016 http://www.news.com.au/national/politics/labor-senator-sam-dastyari-claims-tony-abbott-is-positioning-himself-for-a-leadership-challenge/news-story/7f1ea6b414014d953145317cc3b00983   LABOR Senator Sam Dastyari has claimed Tony Abbott is positioning himself to challenge Malcolm Turnbull for the Liberal leadership. Speaking on Sky News on Sunday morning, Senator Dastyari predicated that Mr Turnbull would not last any more than eighteen months as Prime Minister. “We sat here and we had the exact same conversations about Kevin Rudd and we were saying ‘It can’t happen, it can’t happen, and it happened’. Of course Tony Abbott thinks it can happen,” he said. “This isn’t not premeditated; he’s not walking around giving these speeches, building up these issues, reminding people he’s around, talking about his legacy, for any reason other than this is a guy who’s having another tilt at the leadership,” Senator Dastyari said. His comments come the morning after Labor stormed to a...

We Can: CBA targets 84-year 19 August 2016 Michael West http://www.michaelwest.com.au/we-can-cba-targets-84-year-old-widow/   The Commonwealth Bank is pursuing 84-year-old widow Wilma Shannon through the courts to recover money it claims is owed by her son, even though she and her husband had never been customers of the bank. “I don’t really know (why they are pursuing me),” Mrs Shannon told michaelwest.com.au “I’ve never banked with the Commonwealth, neither did my husband. It was too much for Dal (the husband). He’s passed away with the stress of it”. Hard on the heels of revelations this week that the bank paid its chief executive Ian Narev $12.3 million last year, this further news of predatory behaviour by the banks will hardly diminish the pressure on the government to agree to a royal commission into the banks. Mrs Shannon, a widow from Newcastle on the mid north coast of NSW, is the executor of her...

Fierce backlash to government’s plan to sell off corporate database 23 August 2016 Michael West   http://thenewdaily.com.au/money/finance-news/2016/08/23/govt-sell-asic-register/ The government has elected to respond to the wave of opposition to its plans to sell off the nation’s corporate database by going into hiding. In the wake of revelations last week that Treasury was moving to the final stage of the tender process to privatise the database of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), a host of unions and civil society organisations including GetUp launched a public campaign against the sale. The government reaction to the public outcry was to go private. Its strategy is apparently to batten down the hatches and try to ride out the storm of disapproval. Even the top professional body for accountants, CPA Australia, came out against the privatisation in an op-ed by its chief executive Alex Malley. Already, the charges levied by ASIC for this supposedly...

Bank employees speak out on ‘broken’ system 24 August 2016 Jackson Stiles Money Editor   http://thenewdaily.com.au/money/finance-news/2016/08/24/bank-employees-speak-out/?utm_source=Responsys&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20160825_TND   A broken incentives scheme is pressuring bank employees to act against the interests of customers, insiders have revealed. Anonymous complaints from bank tellers and other staff published this week paint a disturbing picture of a workforce that is stressed, overworked, undertrained and ethically conflicted. “To keep their jobs and feed their families, they are desperate and will do what is demanded of them – exceed their target – however they have to,” one bank worker wrote. “The whole culture of selling products to customers even if they don’t really need them is not ethical,” wrote another.  “Sales target [is] more important than compliance and the customer,” wrote a third. These and dozens of other damning survey responses collected by the Finance Sector Union (FSU) are proof, according to the union, that the “root cause”...

Cut debt levels now or risk our prosperity, warns Treasury head The Australian 12:00am August 27, 2016 Rebecca Urban   Treasury secretary John Fraser has ramped up his call for the government to make fiscal consolidation its immediate priority, warning that rising debt combined with slowing revenue growth risked the country’s future prosperity. Mr Fraser also cautioned against “inappropriate tax ¬increases”, which could reduce Australia’s international competitiveness as well as constrain economic and jobs growth. His comments come as business leaders are planning to lobby crossbench senators to back the federal government’s economic agenda, including a 10-year cut to the company tax rate. It also follows Scott Morrison’s warning that commonwealth gross debt could hit $1 trillion -within a decade in a “worst-case scenario” but that pressure on tax revenue would not be fixed by lifting tax rates or ¬imposing new taxes on business. Speaking at an Institute of Public Affairs...

Banks' profit pursuit having 'devastating' impact on staff By business reporter Thuy Ong Updated Mon at 2:49pm The ABA says a royal commission into the banking sector is not necessary.  Related Story: Complaints about banks rising sharply, Labor says   The Finance Sector Union (FSU) has warned the "relentless pursuit of profits" by Australian banks is having a detrimental effect on staff and has called for a Royal Commission into the sector. The FSU said its members have been taking part in surveys about the impact of product sales targets on pay and culture at banks, ahead of the Australian Bankers Association's inquiry into product-based payments. "Managers have told us to tell clients certain things in order to get results that will generate bonuses for everyone," one survey response said. Another read: "Customers get annoyed that they have someone trying to sell them something every time they walk in the door....

"This issue first surfaced in Australia. Media reports there noted that both ANZ and Westpac have moved to clamp down on burgeoning mortgage application fraud.  In fact, it is likely worse than that. The Australian flows have indicated that mortgages are being used to launder money from China into the country."   How clean are our banks' mortgage books?

More than 100 SMSF auditors struck off by ASIC Sydney Morning Herald AUGUST 23 2016 - 3:25PM Sarah Danckert   More than 100 approved self-managed superannuation fund auditors have had their registration cancelled with the corporate watchdog after failing to file accounts in another blow to Australia's 'selfie' economy. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission said in a statement on Tuesday it had struck off 133 SMSF auditors following a series of warnings. As a result there are only 6,547 registered auditors to assess the financial integrity of the more than 500,000 SMSFs that manage $595 billion in life savings. A staggering 811 auditors – or one in eight SMSF auditors – were threatened with deregistration for failing to follow the basic requirement of filing accounts or paying registration fees to ASIC. After the threats, 626 auditors lodged their annual statement or paid outstanding fees. A final warning from ASIC prompted...

What a crock from this Moron.  Murray one of the key bankers who invented Low Doc Lending Scam.  Hockey promised a “roots and branch Inquiry into Banks.”  Why do that if “nothing wrong.”  Libs were trying to gain power and knew of the myriad of bank scandals.  After Hockey gained power on the Bank Scandal issues he appointed Banker Mate and ex Cartel member Murray to run the FSI Inquiry.  Hockey then resigned in favour of top NY Job.  Libs, Hockey, Murray won…..Consumers lose.    Corrupt Murray specifically ignored submissions and potential witness to Sub Prime Lending Scandal.  If Murray had an ounce integrity he would have said “I have massive conflict of interest and cannot accept appointment.”     So why are Liberals raising “bank bashing” stories everyday to attack Labor?  Because Bill Shorten is a big threat to their political existence.      David Murray: telling tales on the...

Banks accuse Labor of cheap politics Australian Financial Review Aug 23 2016 4:57 PM Phillip Coorey   The banks have slammed the Labor Party for playing politics with the sector after chief tactician Tony Burke said the Opposition would use a motion to establish a royal commission to test the government's one-seat majority when Parliament resumes. Fearful that a Coalition MP might be convinced to cross the floor to support the commission, the Australian Bankers Association said on Tuesday that enough was enough and that Labor kept changing its reasons as to why a royal commission was warranted. Originally, it was argued a commission was needed to clean up the culture of the banks and ensure the regulatory regime was adequate following a string of financial advice and insurance scandals in which customers had been dudded. In recent weeks, Labor has cited the refusal to pass on in full an interest...
