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. BFCSA warn that anyone who has signed up for one of these financial products, is in grave danger of losing their home.

MACQUARIE BANK   5 May 2004   BDM to all brokers  

Mortgage Saver Express  Low Doc

Max 80% LVR to $600,000

Regulated and Unregulated

In name of individuals, companies and trusts.

Unlimited free redraws


{*Mackers started Low docs in May 2004, Citibank started in June 2004]


MACQUARIE BANK   17 May 2004   BDM to all brokers

We have a 90/10 policy where 10% can come from a gift.  No genuine savings required.

Last month Macquarie introduced the 100 Point ID Check.


MACQUARIE BANK   25 May 2004   BDM to a broker

Best to structure 2 stand alone deals – 2 separate applications and fax headers.


Loan 1   $560,000 against the $750K property

Loan 2   $416,000 against properties totalling $520k


This gives client $976,000

Please make sure servicing fits our servicing calculator at 1.50x.  Also the $700K property would have to be in joint names and each of the other properties must have each of the clients on at least one of the titles.

Hope this makes sense.  Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.  Many thanks for the business, it is much appreciated.


MACQUARIE BANK   11 May 2004   BDM to all brokers

Construction and Vacant Land – Low Docs

All loans can be done in a company or trust name – Low Docs

Tax deductibility of interest on proposed investment loans can be used in servicing, increasing borrower capacity.

90% lend with no genuine savings required.

Line of Credit Low doc

Turn Around times for approval: 48 hours.

Please complete borrowers income declaration form and servicing calculator

Low Doc clients must be self-employed for at least two years

If ABN does not show this please have accountant’s letter conforming self employed > 2 years.  Accountant does not need to disclose income, only length of employment.

For Low Doc loans above $600,000 must service at 1.5x

[This was a servicing ratio so brokers may not understand the formula but knew they could re-work the income to be under the 1.5x criteria.  The online service calculator would assist the brokers in doing the maths in order to meet the criteria for approval.]


MACQUARIE BANK   2 August 2004   BDM to all brokers

Remember, your client must be self-employed for 2 years and provide an ABN.  If you wish to check registration, go to

MACQUARIE BANK   7 February 2006   BDM to all brokers

Hi everyone,

We receive a lot of Low doc and No Doc applications so here is…

Summary of our Low Doc and No Doc products.


95% No genuine savings product available



LOW DOCS – Clients must be self-employed for 2 years and have an ABN to verify (unless they declare under $50,000 (net income) in which we can accept a letter from the accountant confirming two year self-employed.

Low Docs can be regulated or unregulated purposes

Clients need to state a particular income, declare client’s assets and liabilities on the application form (LAF) and YOU complete a servicing calculator.


For a NO DOC

NO DOC - clients only need an ABN for one day

No Need to declare Assets and Liabilities and no need to state income and no need to provide a service calculator.

No Docs must be unregulated

Purpose must be for > 50% investment

Clients can use their owner occupied property (as security)

For No Doc clients complete sections A and C of the income declaration form only.

[This was the Self certification Form and the income MUST NOT BE STATED on this form (SB)]

[When this was taken to FOS by BFCSA (Inc), the banks said: Self Cert Form – borrowers did not put income in the box and state their income………What nonsense!  The Brokers told them just to sign the bottom of the form and not given time to read the form.

The Banks told their Introducers not to fill in the income on a NO DOC.]

CLEARLY THIS WAS BANK POLICY THAT FITTED CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL.  Banks approved these loans in hundreds of thousands of cases.

BDM writes: Looking For a No Doc Loan?

BDM teaching and coaching broker:  Clients could always split the loans if they have a couple of properties.  Eg: If they have 2 properties each worth $1.5 million then we could set up as 2 separate applications.

1 for $1 million secured against $1.5 million property

1 for $1 million secured against second property worth $1.5 million.

Gives clients a maximum exposure under No Doc


MACQUARIE BANK   7 January 2008   BDM to all brokers

Our NO DOC loan continues to be well received by brokers and clients alike….its nice and simple…
