What BFCSA Does...

BFCSA investigates fraud involving lenders, spruikers and financial planners worldwide.  Full Doc, Low Doc, No Doc loans, Lines of Credit and Buffer loans appear to be normal profit making financial products, however, these loans are set to implode within seven years.  For the past two decades, Ms Brailey, President of BFCSA (Inc), has been a tireless campaigner, championing the cause of older and low income people around the Globe who have fallen victim to banking and finance scams.  She has found that people of all ages are being targeted by Bankers offering faulty lending products.

Throw in large amounts of government funding, a handful of extreme capitalists with pre-GFC form, and sharemarket investors looking for constant profit growth. Stir. It's a recipe for disaster. Two recent raisings -- the $450 million float of nursing home operator Japara and a $100 million capital raising by the G8 childcare group, still underway -- are another sign we have failed to learn the lessons of the financial crisis, and that irrational exuberance may be returning to the sharemarket. Soft business coverage is one dead giveaway. Japara Healthcare, the first pure aged care company on the ASX, which made a stunning debut last Thursday, got a dream...

  Posted by Houses and Holes in Banks on November 14, 2012 | 25 comments   Congratulations to Cameron Clyne of NAB for last night’s Lowy Lecture, in which he called for a Son of Wallis Inquiry specifically aimed at addressing Australia’s addiction to offshore wholesale funding. In a strangely blunt and at times in-eloquent speech, Clyne nonetheless made perfect sense:   Australian banks have significantly reduced exposure in recent years and we have sat out of the offshore markets for extended periods when spreads were wide and credit demand was low. But our banks still regularly feature in the top 10 of global issuance which is disproportionate given we represent only two per cent of global GDP. We are reluctant to further increase that position but we do need to move towards more stable balance sheet settings required by regulators.

BY GUY GOLDRICK BANKWEST CLASS ACTION GROUP   02 Dec, 2011 04:00 AM   AN article in Queensland Country Life reported that Bankwest had called in receivers on the properties owned by Richmond Mayor John Wharton. He is not alone so much so that I have formed a class action group over of Bankwest's actions since they were bought out by CBA. The outcome is many hard working Australian families and businesses have lost everything because of the corporate greed of CBA and the need to be seen to be doing the right thing by the Government. I would put losses by these families and business at over half a billion dollars. We believe there have been backroom deals done between the Government and the CBA on this. The huge winners have been CBA and the receivers who feed off the carcasses of the Australian families and businesses that CBA/Bankwest has...

Things are not looking good for the government. Australia is getting further into debt. They have caught the debt disease too. Debt is not the solution - debt is the problem. When are they going to eat humble pie? Rather than become further indebted to foreign interests, would it not be better .... To ask the Australian Banks for their $55 billion bailout back? To ask the IMF for the $7 billion Aussie donation to the European banks? To look at the money Australian and overseas banks are syphoning out of all Australians? To seriously look at how the Australian banks are rorting the taxation system? To attend to the serious level of inefficiency and waste in all the regulators, especially ASIC? .... just for starters!

0 0 0 0 0 0 These excerpts are taken from a Submission to Parliamentary Inquiry.  28 April, 2012 Senate Standing Committees on Economics PO Box 6100 Parliament House Canberra ACT 2600     Dear Sir I Madam, I wish to make a submission within the terms of reference above; regarding an incomplete and misleading valuation of a property, commissioned by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, which was subsequently purchased under mortgage to the CBA. I am now trying to sell the property, and it is worth nothing like its valuation. This has caused me to be unable to discharge the mortgage, for which the CBA is now rejecting any form of responsibility.   Consequently, the valuation over-estimated the value of the property and provided a misleading basis for decision making regarding {a) the merits of purchasing at all, and (b) at the specific price that could be regarded as reasonable...

Transcript LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: The scandal over alleged bribery and corruption in companies owned by the Reserve Bank is deepening.Explosive new evidence shows that RBA subsidiaries paid more than $3 million in commissions to a Malaysian arms dealer to secure bank note contracts in Asia.

"A Royal Commission into the Australian Banking Sector is our democratic right. To deny us that right is truly unAustralian."   There are many strong arguments in favour of holding a Royal Commission into Banking with wide terms of reference.  One of the side effect of the Royal Commission is its capacity to bring the issues into every Australian home through the main stream media. This in turn will generate far greater awareness of the serious anomalies and inherent risks within the Australian Financial Sector. It may also answer the questions for so many Australians whose lives have been smashed by the deregulated "free market" Australian Financial Sector, directly and indirectly, including the big ones: Why weren't we told? How could this be allowed to happen in Australia? Consumer protection isn't for just for the elderly - it benefits all Australians. We've been badly misled by those entrusted to protect us,...

    By Caroline Dann | 9/07/2012   Experts believe Japan’s Sony Bank is unlikely to pose a threat to mortgage brokers, following last week’s announcement of its plans to launch in Australia.   Sony Bank is an online business which, in theory, cuts out the need for brokers with its direct-to-lender approach.   Speaking to Australian Broker Online, SAKS Consulting’s principal, Steve Patterson, was sceptical of its impact on intermediaries.   “If brokers do their jobs properly, and are there to help people through the biggest financial decision of their lives, there will always be a need for them,” he said.   “It’s a complicated process, and most people welcome someone on the other side of the kitchen table to explain everything.”   Patterson believes the Big Four have too much of a stronghold on the market to be sidelined by a foreign bank.   “Firstly, new and foreign...

29 August, 2012 BankWest customers tell the Senate shocking stories of fraudulent foreclosures while Australia’s financial journalists are out to lunch — dining on the Commonwealth’s Bank’s record profits. Associate Professor Evan Jones reports. ON THURSDAY 16 August, the Sydney Morning Herald reported the Commonwealth Bank’s approximately $7.1 billion profit, up $700 million from 2010-11. The Herald’s financial journalists fell over themselves in adulation. Here was a true national champion. The previous week, a different story was being played out. The Senate Inquiry into the ‘post-GFC banking sector’ held hearings in Canberra (8th) and Sydney (9th & 10th). A couple of dozen spectators attended the Sydney hearings; it appears that the Herald was not amongst them. It was a spectacle. Transcripts of the hearings are available here. The Senate Economics Committee instigated its banking inquiry in March, following pressure from myriad former customers of CBA-owned BankWest who claim that their...

  This is an interesting historical article on perceptions about Australian RMBS. It certainly pays to be informed about risk in the marketplace.   by Hardeep Dhillon     In terms of collateral, the Australian residential mortgage-backed securities market has performed better than its peers for several years, thanks mainly to its blemishless default history. After a post-crisis slump, a revival of domestic issuance is under way; but it could take much longer for cross-border transactions to follow.   The peak came in February 2007 with the A$7 billion ($5.5 billion at time of issue) multi-currency transaction by Commonwealth Bank of Australia, via its Medallion programme. As well as being the largest RMBS by an Aussie borrower, the deal set a new pricing benchmark, with the most senior US dollar-denominated notes offering a pick-up of just 4 basis points over Libor. Around that time, spreads on deals from the three other banks...

This is simply brilliant! - a "creative" solution to bank angst - in particular, NAB angst. Bankslayer has done it again :)   This is my how to for creative visualization - I imagine the building is the headquarters of the National Australia Bank being demolished after they've gone bankrupt. How did the nab go bankrupt? Well, after months of campaigning politicians finally did the right thing and there was a Royal Commission into Bank Malpractice. Following even more months of evidence including that of victims of the bank such as Ozzie Inak and Rosie Cornell as well as numerous expert witnesses the nab was stripped of it's license to trade as a bank. Unable to be a fully functioning bank their shareholders abandoned them.  After considerable whingeing the nab was declared bankrupt. See how easy creative visualization is?

By Philip Soos  Tuesday, 21 August 2012 The level of sub-prime mortgages in Australia may be far in advance of what was previously assumed and provided for by banks. The story was broken on the ABC, and covered elsewhere. The revelations centred around two personalities: Kate Thompson and Denise Brailey. Kate Thompson was a licensed mortgage broker at Mortgage Miracles in Western Australia. A highly regarded and award-winning broker, Thompson disbursed a veritable torrent of credit from bank and non-banking lenders to clients wanting funds to buy property, making around $5 million a year from upfront and trailing commissions. She is now facing fraud charges for what amounts to predatory lending: providing credit to people with little to no expectation they will be able to repay the entirety of the loan. This fraud was achieved by fudging the income and assets of clients, making them appear much wealthier on paper than was...

From MORTGAGE MIX - Thankyou to Tim Neary for this good article on the Royal Commission and Lo Doc Sub Prime Debate.    17 Aug 2012 Macrobusiness published an interesting article recently suggesting Australia’s claim to having a conservative (and safe) banking sector have ‘taken a bath’ recently, as evidence emerges of our own low doc driven sub-prime lending scandal.A video link from the article suggests in the run up to the GFC, Australian banks and other home-grown lenders abused the system of low doc loans; designed for small businesses but sold “by the thousands” to pensioners, single mums and people on welfare.It might sound shocking, but opinion on the subject is firmly divided.In response to the subprime scandal reference one reader left this pointed comment: “Sub-prime???? Pffffffft you guys are so 2007…”One of the industry’s leading low doc aficionados, Pepper’s Mario Rehayem, is also thumbing his nose at the notion. He has been ever...

The Australian 18th August 2012 ANTHONY KLAN THE corporate regulator has refused to investigate a claim of alleged low-doc loan fraud despite one of the nation's top forensic handwriting experts saying there is "no evidence" the documents in question are legitimate. Businessman Gary White applied for copies of the application forms for a loan he had taken out via mortgage broker Resi and said he believed his signature had been repeatedly forged and his income inflated more than sixfold. Resi has denied Mr White's allegations and says it takes such allegations "very seriously". As reported by The Australian this week, Mr White has spent four years seeking regulatory action, and has spent thousands of dollars having the documents forensically examined. Handwriting expert Steven Strach, of Forensic Document Services, concluded there was "no evidence" signatures on the documents were those of Mr White. The Australian Securities & Investments Commission says there...

  On the page http://www.aph.gov.au/About_Parliament/Senate there is a link to order of business in the Senate. ("the Red") I've noticed that there are NCCP Amendments listed. Has anyone else read them? Do you consider these are an enhancement of our consumer rights or detrimental to our debtor relationship with the lender, from the consumer perspective?    There is also a link to all the Senators on Twitter - you can subscribe to their feeds. Interesting quick reading about what's going on.  EDITOR:   New NCCP Laws will not assist consumers - due to the FACT that ASIC has admitted it is not there to handle consumer complaints.  So no enforcement of law means we are better off having no laws, than made to believe we have Clayton's Laws that never get used or applied.  False protection is worse than the truth: There is no protection as there is no enforcement...
