  • BFCSA: Dear PM all of us retirees have done our bit in the workforce not sitting around doing bugger all # 19

    Posted by Denise - 0 Comments
    To Prime Minister Morrison   My Husband and myself invested our money into Sterling New Life for security and assurance and a 40 yr lease.  At the time of signing in October 2017, we signed up with them for an eazy-move contract which assured us that we could move into this house when our previous house was sold. We moved here on 31st January 2018 but in November last year my Husband was diagnosed with Cancer. He passed away in April this year and then on top of that, I got  the bombshell that SNL was going into liquidation.  I was totally shocked and appalled that at 78yrs of age, I was going to lose all my money and not only that, to have to exist on a single pension! Why is it that ASIC has sat back and done stuff all to help, not only me but all the other...

  • BFCSA: The HEM HPI Scam ASIC tallies Westpac’s responsible lending law breaches

    Posted by Denise - 0 Comments
    ASIC tallies Westpac’s responsible lending law breaches The Australian 12:00am May 7, 2019 Anthony Klan   Westpac broke responsible lending laws more than 260,000 times in just over three years, the corporate watchdog had told the Federal Court in Sydney this morning. Lawyers for the Australian Securities & Investments Commission said between December 2011 and March 2015, Westpac engaged in a “systematic approach” of ignoring the living expenses loan applicants had stated on application forms. Instead it relied on broad living expense “benchmarks”, which, if they were true, would in some cases have meant the loan applicant was already living on, or close to, the poverty line, ASIC told the court. ASIC said Westpac failed to properly verify the actual financial positions of borrowers a total of 261,987 times. In 154,351 of those cases, the bank also failed to use correct figures when assessing if borrowers taking out interest-only loans could...

  • BFCSA: NAB axes controversial home loan referral program

    Posted by Denise - 0 Comments
    NAB axes controversial home loan referral program Sydney Morning Herald March 25, 2019 6.14pm Clancy Yeates   Real estate agents, lawyers and sports clubs will no longer be able to receive payments from National Australia Bank for helping sell home loans, in a move aimed at rebuilding trust after the bank's reputation took a battering at the royal commission. Acting chief executive Phil Chronican on Monday announced the axing of NAB's "introducer" scheme, to take effect from October, saying that scrapping the payments was "the right thing to do". Referral schemes, such as NAB's introducer program, are used by banks as a way of drumming up business. They involve paying a type of spotter's fee to people who refer customers to the bank if they end up taking out a loan. NAB made nearly $100 million in such payments between 2013 and 2016, offering commissions of 0.4 per cent of loans,...

  • BFCSA: Australian Big Banks' nice earners from DODGY LOANS are melting away. OR are they?

    Posted by Denise - 0 Comments
    The big banks' nice earners are melting away Australian Financial Review Mar 22, 2019 11.00pm Karen Maley   After months of crippling humiliation before the Hayne commission, the last thing the country's big four banks wanted was another portent of looming competition. But that's exactly what they got in September when the country's largest super fund, AustralianSuper, announced it was committing £230 million ($425 million) to finance a new office, hotel and residential unit development in London, known as One Crown Place. It was a logical next step for AustralianSuper, which had already lent some $1 billion to Australian companies, but almost always in tandem with one of the big four local banks. In contrast, there were no local banks in sight in the One Crown Place deal – which boosted AustralianSuper's international loan exposure to more than $2 billion. In that transaction, AustralianSuper found itself rubbing shoulders with major global banks. It was a...

    Retail funds dominate in 50 worst-performing super investments The Australian 12:00am January 19, 2019 Anthony Klan   EXCLUSIVE  Every one of the 50 worst-performing balanced superannuation investments over seven years has been operated by retail funds such as ANZ, Westpac and IOOF, with just one product offered by the for-profit sector making it onto the list of the top 135 performers. In revelations that categorically bring to an end the fierce three-decade dispute between retail and industry funds over which is superior, secretive and highly detailed industry data obtained by The Weekend Australian shows that regardless of the investment timeframe or level of risk involved, retail funds are unquestionably consistently at the bottom and industry funds are consistently at the top. Despite every worker being forced to divert a portion of every pay packet into compulsory super since it was introduced in 1992 — and the key choice most people face...

  • BFCSA: Beware Shadow banks grab market share with big borrowing savings for property buyers

    Posted by Denise - 0 Comments
    Shadow banks grab market share with big borrowing savings for property buyers Australian Financial Review 12 Dec 2018 3:19 PM Duncan Hughes   Shadow banks are grabbing property market share from the majors with rates nearly 80 basis points cheaper and faster loan approval, analysis of rates and conditions shows. The banks, which are not authorised as deposit-taking institutions, are growing at 2½ times than their rivals but still account for only 9.5 per cent of the mortgage market, according to analysis. The regulation-light sector has avoided most of the consumer fall-out from the banking royal commission and restrictions imposed on the majors by prudential regulators, such as caps on lending and pressure to intensify scrutiny of borrowers' income and spending. They have also shown a greater risk appetite by continuing to target low-documentation borrowers, who are typically self-employed or small business owners that do not have access to pay slip...

    NAB chief tells inquiry banks started ‘drifting’ from customers 20 years ago Andrew Thorburn says he is ashamed of how National Australia Bank has behaved in recent years https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/oct/19/nab-chief-tells-inquiry-banks-started-drifting-from-customers-20-years-ago The National Australia Bank chief executive, Andrew Thorburn, has conceded that problems began seeping into the country’s banking industry two decades ago. He says that when he entered banking 30 years ago, he was taught that banks existed to serve customers, but the industry started to “drift” in the late 1990s and he was ashamed of how NAB had behaved in recent years. It means two-thirds of his banking career has been spent in an industry drifting away from customers. “When I started in banking, it was serving customers, [that] was what was drilled into us [about] why we existed,” Thorburn said on Friday.  It is greed that has led Australian banks to steal from dead people Richard Denniss     Read...

    CBA mulled warning dead customers about fees in product disclosure statement Australian Financial Review Aug 15 2018 4:14 PM James Frost   The Commonwealth Bank's superannuation trustee, Avanteos Investments Limited, considered covering its tracks over the charging of dead people for financial advice by updating its product disclosure statement (PDS), the Hayne royal commission heard. Counsel assisting Michael Hodge, QC, was questioning Colonial First State's executive general manager Linda Elkins about a range of conflicts within the bank's superannuation trustee business, including the charging of dead customers for financial advice. Ms Elkins explained that following revelations that the bank's financial advisers had been charging dead customers for financial advice back in April, a review of the bank's superannuation arm took place which revealed it was charging dead superannuation customers as far back as 2015. Ms Elkins said that in a review conducted this year, it was found that a way to...

    Suncorp used 'tax surplus' for admin rather than return money to members Sydney Morning Herald 14 August 2018 5:53am Clancy Yeates   Suncorp's superannuation trustee used tax refunds within funds to purchase administrative services from other parts of the financial conglomerate, instead of returning the money to members as many funds do, the royal commission heard. As part of its scrutiny of superannuation trustees, the Hayne royal commission on Monday afternoon turned its attention to how Suncorp used what it called a "tax surplus." This referred to member funds that were collected for taxation purposes, but the fund ended up with a surplus because of deductions. Senior counsel assisting the commission, Michael Hodge QC, questioned Maurizio Pinto, the head of the office of the trustee within Suncorp Portfolio Services Limited (SPSL), about the arrangement, and the monitoring of the services provided. Mr Hodge said "many" other super funds dealt with a...

    Banking royal commission: super rip-offs, gouging revealed The Australian 12:00am August 7, 2018 Ben Butler, Elizabeth Redman, Michael Roddan   Australians are being ripped off by super fund trustees “surrounded by temptation” to do the wrong thing with the $2.6 trillion retirement savings pile, while regulators are failing to search out and punish bad behaviour, the banks royal commission has heard. In one example of fee gouging outlined at the royal commission yesterday, NAB charged a customer of its MLC division an array of fees that gobbled up $892.20 of $1101.95 earned from a year-long investment in the simplest option available, cash. As the commission investigates the inner workings of the compulsory superannuation system over the next two weeks of hearings, it will explore how retirement savers are swindled through fees for services they never receive, cosy deals between retail super funds and the banks that control them, account-draining insurance premiums,...

    Watchdog failed to act on warning over super fees The Australian 12:00am July 23, 2018 Anthony Klan   EXCLUSIVE  The regulator responsible for the nation’s $2.6 trillion superannuation nest egg was warned by its analysts eight years ago that the major banks and finance companies were charging members more than 2½ times the market rates for services, delivering them billions of dollars a year in extra profits. A 2010 research paper published by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority — which can now be accessed only via a federal government archive — shows excessive fees charged by the managers of the retail, or for-profit, funds have been systemically eating into the retirement savings of millions of workers. Despite the peer-reviewed academic paper being written by APRA’s own analysts, including then APRA research head Bruce Arnold, the regulator has not only failed to take any significant steps to address the issue, it has...

    How ASIC closed in on AMP’s ‘orphan’ customers The Australian 12:00am July 16, 2018 Pamela Williams   The key document that sparked AMP to commission Clayton Utz last year to investigate its “fees for no service” scandal was already in the sights of the corporate regulator before the consultancy’s ­report was ever completed and handed to the AMP board. This explosive AMP internal document, which became known at the corporate regulator as the “orphan contracts document”, five years ago canvassed the ­severe risks for AMP if it did not cease charging fees on so-called “orphan policies” where clients had no financial adviser. The Australian Securities & Investments Commission was sharply tightening its focus on AMP last year with demands for historic paperwork after several years of investigating AMP and big banks over fees for no service. The formal demand from ASIC for all records relating to the orphan contracts document was...

Affluent suburban postcodes feature among an estimated 1000 households a week expected to face mortgage default over the next 12 months, the analysis reveals. "Debt stress momentum is unprecedented," according to Martin North, principal of research firm Digital Finance Analytics, who has been doing the survey for more than 15 years.  "This is not just about mortgage battlers.

As the Turnbull government scrambles to tackle the housing affordability crisis in the upcoming May budget, economists warn that rising interest rates would hurt those who’re barely holding onto the property ladder.  Modelling produced by the DFA shows that property-owning, working-class families in Narre Warren, Craigieburn, Endeavour Hills, and Berwick are facing the most acute mortgage stress. Even a mere 0.5% interest-rate rise would put an additional 50,000 owner-occupiers and investors...

    Sound familiar In Australia?  Doesn’t take much to know why our banks now all have internal customer advocates to control what suits them to investigate internally and what suits them to be investigated by the FOS!   Hope for bank fraud victims: 'We were robbed of £47,000 – but the ombudsman took our side' 3 September 2016 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/consumer-affairs/hope-for-bank-fraud-victims-we-were-robbed-of-47000--but-the-omb/   In what could be a breakthrough ruling for victims of banking fraud, the financial ombudsman is to order a high street bank to repay an elderly couple who lost tens of thousands of pounds in a conveyancing scam. The ombudsman, which settles disputes between customers and financial services firms, will tell Lloyds Bank to repay £47,508 plus interest to Donald Kelly, a retired professor, and his wife, Patricia. Its decision was based on what Lloyds knew about the fraudsters. Banks are supposed to check the credentials of all customers when they open an...

    Does the S&P Settlement change EVERYTHING? 16 February 2015 https://peopleriskmanagement.com/2015/02/16/does-the-sp-settlement-change-everything/ The S& P saga rumbles on. Having been hammered by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in January [1], S&P has received a knock-out blow, and a $1.375 billion fine, from the US Department of Justice and 20 State governments [2]. And in what might the first of many private actions, S&P also reached a separate $125 million settlement with the huge pension fund California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CALPERS) [3]. What has received little publicity, however, are the implications of the S&P settlement with regard to Corporate Governance, in general, and Codes of Conduct in particular. In justifying the huge fine, the Justice Department said that “as part of the resolution, S&P admitted facts demonstrating that it misrepresented itself to investors and the public, allowing the pursuit of profits to bias its ratings”.

Sloan will replace him.   Stumpf stepped down from both of his leadership posts Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a person close to the situation.   Wells Fargo, which until recently had been the most valuable big bank in the US for years, settled a lawsuit with regulators and a city official last month for $185 million.   To meet sales quotas, the bank created accounts for unwitting customers, some of whom paid fines and fees on them.

The added grace period, which follows three one-year extensions, would start next year and run through 2022. The law on Volcker rule implementation says banks can ask for an extra five-year extension for "illiquid" funds, where banks had contractual commitments to invest.  In deciding whether to grant Wall Street more leeway, the Fed has asked...

To settle allegations of money-laundering and mortgage abuses, it has paid billions of dollars — but has not been criminally charged.

I wrote about this in a letter late last year, but now here we are more than halfway through the year and it’s only getting worse. So much worse that the Chinese property bubble is now the catalyst that will reset markets – and will likely be one large event that cascades across the globe.

The unprecedented conviction of bad bankers sent a strong message across the world (none of America’s top bankers went to jail for the crimes that caused the 2008 financial crisis) that no individual is too big to investigate, and that it was possible to prosecute fraudulent bankers. Taking cue from Iceland, Ireland is going to prosecute the 2005-2008 CEO of Anglo Irish Bank, David Drumm, on 33 criminal charges. These include two charges of conspiracy to defraud and false accounting relating to €7.2 billion in deposits placed in Anglo Irish Bank accounts by the then Irish Life and Permanent, between March and September...

The Japanese test case could finally resolve a longstanding dispute between monetarists and money reformers over the economic effects of government-issued money. When then-Fed Governor Ben Bernanke gave his famous helicopter money speech to the Japanese in 2002, he was talking about something quite different from the quantitative easing they actually got and other central banks later mimicked. Quoting Milton Friedman, he said the government could reverse a deflation simply by printing money and dropping it from helicopters. A gift of free money with no strings attached, it would find its way into the real economy and trigger...

    Home Loan Mortgage Arrears Rising and Rents falling The proportion of Australian home owners falling behind on their mortgage repayments has increased, according to ratings agency Standard & Poor's.   http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-07-19/home-loan-mortgage-arrears-rising/7638528   The global credit ratings giant said May was the seventh consecutive month where mortgage arrears had increased. So-called prime mortgages have an arrears rate of 1.21 per cent, up from 1.14 per cent in April and 1.07 per cent a year earlier. These are mortgages to borrowers with full documentation around their income, savings and assets. The arrears rate for "nonconforming" loans jumped from 4.25 per cent in April to 4.71 per cent in May, but remains well off a peak of 17 per cent in 2009. "Nonconforming" loans include those with limited documentation, so-called low-doc loans, which are often given to small business owners or contractors who have limited evidence of their earnings. Both measures are for those borrowers...

After doing a lot of homework on this and talking to others that had joined we signed up on the 26th July 2017. We took all our money...

    Leader of the Federal Opposition Hon. Mr Anthony Albanese PO Box 6022 House of Representatives, Parliament House, Canberra, ACT 2600     Dear Mr Albanese Sterling New Life Scandal – WA, QLD, Victoria We would like to let you know of how we were involved with this scandal. After having investigated the company fully and seeking legal advice and financial advice, we were told that this was on the low side of risk. We entered into a “rent for Life” scheme in September, 2018 with the Sterling Group. In May, 2019 we were informed that the company had gone into voluntary administration. In June, 2019 we received a letter saying that the company had gone into liquidation. In 7 short months we had lost $280,00.00 to white collar crime in Australia. We understand that as far back as 2015 WA Consumer Affairs investigated Sterling and found breaches of the Corporations Law....

We lost most of our life savings and housing security as a result, and it had come to our attention that our due diligence had failed to take into account the neglect of ASIC in its statutory responsibility for consumer protection. Apparently, it had been red-flagging the Sterling group for some time and did not deem this important enough to stop the product that we and many other senior citizens bought into.  Further details of our experience are submitted in a...

    26th August 2019   Dear  Dr Chalmers   After investing our money into SNL, we were assured that we would be secure with a 40 year lease for our retirement. My Husband passed away in April this year after suffering with Cancer. In May I was faced with the bombshell that our money had gone and Sterling had gone into liquidation. As you may understand, it has caused a lot of stress and worry as to what I was going to do , especially as now I am living on a single pension and face a very uncertain future. The people who have stolen our hard earned money ie, Ray and Ryan Jones are criminals and should be locked away for this. I am among so many other people who have invested into Sterling.  Some  are very ill and also in danger of losing their homes.  Where do they go?  We...

    Dear Mr Carey We sold our house back in 2016 and invested in a well- advertised scheme where we moved into a rental property with promise of the interest from our investment would pay our rent .It failed and we now have lost all our investment and we are obliged to pay our rent out of our pension which leaves us little to live on.  My complaint to you is that the company we invested in was Sterling New life and we understand that as far back as 2010 WA Consumer Affairs was not happy with the structure and advised ASIC of the probable problems. It appears that ASIC did nothing to 1. Advise the people of a probable white collar ponzi scheme  2. Investigate the scheme at any length or if at all.  3. Bring the directors to task by asking for their business plan.  In our opinion ASIC has...

It has caused a lot of stress and heartache for people here. 2. On the night of the Election we received an email saying all our money was gone and the company was in administration. We learnt about this from our landlord who is also a victim in the collapse of this company. 3. The directors took all our money and Centrelink deemed us as homeowners so no rent assistance was allowed. Some Centrelink offices did it differently and gave rent assistance and now the investors are being asked to pay it back. 4, We now have no asset to fall back on and we were promised a lifelong lease, 5. We are now paying twice to live, once to...

      Prime Minister of Australia Dear Sir I write his letter to complain about the lack of proper investigation into the Sterling New Life scheme aimed at elderly pensioners. This idea was to invest into the company trust fund which in turn invested our money to pay a long lease in a new home. We looked at this idea and found it appealing and consequently went ahead and signed up in Sept 2017. It was great and we were happy and content. In July 2018 we received a phone call from Michael Darch of ASIC asking were we happy with our situation and did we know what we had entered into. Some 2-3 days later we had an email apologizing to us and hoping he had not upset us with his enquiry. May of 2019 the company was in administration and we along with 120 other older couples lost over $270,000...

    Posted by Denise - 0 Comments
    Sterling New Life Mr Frydenberg Dear Sir This letter is to complain about the Department of ASIC. You allow them a budget of some $550 million dollars per annum. Do you feel you(we) are getting value for money? In their so-called mission statement, the final words read “to protect Australian investors and creditors”. You may by this time have heard of the slick marketing structure by Sterling New Life Company. with a further 12 other companies to move money around to cover their tracks from the tax Dept. This company was reported to ASIC in 2010 by the WA Consumers Affairs Dept. stating this company was suspect and the CEO and Directors were well known to have previously moved on the public with heavy losses to the investors. I therefore ask 1.Did the Director of ASIC know of the Ponzi scheme back in 2010? 2. What if anything did the Dept...

It followed similar correspondence to ASIC chairman, Mr James Shipton, and the Federal Treasurer, the Hon. Josh Frydenberg concerning the compensation we believe we are urgently due. Our only direct response so far has been a letter from Treasury telling us to take our claim to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). However, we are advised that this would be a waste of time as a history of similar complaints reveals that, for the most part, such submissions are investigated, mined for data and then dismissed. The need is urgent as this money represents our carefully planned accommodation security,...

This is a gross misconduct of the elected government especially as our now PM was treasurer at the time to allow this company to continue along on their merry way ripping of people to the tune of millions of dollars for their own gain .

When I first started reading the article I assumed it must of  been large sums of money but no it sums of a thousand dollars or less. These poor souls are calling on everyone from ASIC to the police to act to bring this known fraudster to account, they are victims of fraud and want the courts to act. Well, well welcome to our world and we aren't talking little piddling amounts of less than a thousand dollars, we're talking in excess of a million dollars in some cases.
