Posted by on in Corrupt Regulators
Greg Medcraft gets his better ideas from the BFCSA site and all the letters that BFCSA, Storm, Westpoint and other "victims" of ASIC's blatant neglect, extended incompetency and reluctance to act. But the whole world knows now that ASIC will "protect" CBA and other banks in preference to doing their jobs. How do we know? Because Mr Turner, Chairman of the Board of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia announced that at the AGM. Unless I misread what he was talking about .... ASIC of course is supposed to be the impartial corporate regulator. ASIC seem to have missed the concept of impartial - Corporate regulations apply equally to banks and microbusinesses. ASIC also had the conflicting role of consumer protection and complaints against corporations. That, clearly, wasn't going to work. So ASIC opted for sticking with the strength e.g. banks of whom there were fewer and much easier to cope with...

Corporate cop flags derivatives crackdown:  As the old adage says, "there's never a cop around, when you need one". --Now ASIC chairman Greg Medcraft says he's "very worried" about derivatives. He's chairing a global taskforce with the French regulator in a bid to get ahead of certain banks which are "skirting" regulations. GREG MEDCRAFT:"They are basically manufactured on a global basis by banks etc. So perhaps there should be some guidance or standards established, for the way that the products are actually basically regulated" --STOP PRESS, Greg Medcraft, is understood to have overseen Societe Generale' mortgage securities business during the time it allegedly engaged in misconduct, and subject of a 2008 class action in the US brought by former employees alleging the bank's securitisation business engaged in fraudulent conduct between 2005 & 2008.

ASIC warning to self-funded retirees: *Beware, any consumers showing symptoms of "self belief" in ASIC -- that it's function is truly representative of a Government Legislated Consumer "Watchdog" -- is grievously mistaken, as such, is extremely hazardous to your financial well-being and you risk losing everything. ASIC's Greg Medcraft was asked in Senate Estimates last night what he was doing about "the sharks in that safety net". And he confirmed that"self managed investors were out on their own" and that they needed to sign a declaration acknowledging that there is "no protection". MATHIAS CORMANN [to ASIC]: What is your timetable?  So you're waiting for the Government to make a response and then ASIC decides how it fits into that? So ASIC doesn't have its own timetable yet? TONY EASTLEY: The corporate regulator has suggested that self funded retirees be required to acknowledge that they're not covered by guarantees for theft or fraud.It comes after investors in...

Unsecured creditors to receive nothing from Provident [13 Oct 2012]  Sub-prime mortgage lender Provident Capital's unsecured creditors will receive nothing following the firm's collapse, while other investors will only begin to receive some capital after some $100 million worth of homes and other properties are slowly repossessed, according to The Australian.  The newspaper also reported that Provident had told investors only three months before it collapsed in July that it was confident the $220 million lender could stay afloat. That pledge came despite the fact that 90 per cent of the loans it had made using investors' money were many months in arrears. The firm used investors' money or their self-managed superannuation funds to in turn lend to sub-prime borrowers buying residential property or to property developers. News that unsecured creditors would receive nothing surfaced after one Provident borrower received a letter from the Financial Ombudsman Service. “The receiver has informed FOS that there will be no...

Pacific First Mortgage Fund [CP] by Andrew Griffin: "I say the returns were “illusory” because the distributions that resulted from the ‘accounting income’ were largely funded not by income earned from the loans but from new money invested in your fund by new investors and this is the very definition of a Ponzi, or pyramid, scheme --funding existing investor’s distributions with new investor’s money.  Why was it hidden? Why did they not stop it? Because once this became known there would be no more new investment in the Fund the cash flow would stop and it would collapse --the unitholders were not important, your only role was to be it's ‘iron lung’, you unknowingly kept them alive. As a thank-you CP stripped the last remaining cash out of the Fund with a $50m loan to itself in March 2009. I cannot imagine what would have happened if they were still the manager of your Fund....

Chairman: "If history is any guide, we have some time before this [financial crisis] is over...these financial crises occur regularly & follow consistent patterns, as such, we should expect this one to last at least another 5yrs, maybe longer." ”CEO: "that poor business & consumer confidence continues." The banks clearly have some ugly stuff in their loan books & while it seems odd that the banks could still be expecting a rise in unrecoverable loans so long after the GFC [not odd says BFCSA] it suggests many businesses that have held on are now running out of options. Bendigo’s warning is supported by the fact that BoQ & ANZ have both recently warned that bad debt levels could increase as the tail of the GFC washes through. _______________________________ Bendigo Bank delivers a warning 30 Oct 2012   The annual general meeting season is in full swing and yesterday’s big event saw Bendigo and...

It’s all perfectly sensible in theory. But in practice, it’s ripe for abuse, especially when the servicer owns the insurer. But Everbank allegedly let that insurance policy lapse, allowing it to replace the policy with a different policy, this one costing more than $33,000. The insurer, a subsidiary of Assurant, then paid Everbank a $7,100 kickback for giving it such a lucrative policy --and, “left the door open to further compensation” down the road. $7,100 is an insanely enormous amount of money for a loan servicer to make on a single property: And of course it’s not the servicer paying that $33,000 insurance premium --that money is ultimately paid by the investors who bought the loan. Those investors are, understandably, not happy.  The force-placed insurance scandal --By Felix Salmon  in   NOV 9, 2010 HOUSING American Banker’s Jeff Horwitz has a spectacular piece of reporting today about goings on in an obscure corner of the mortgage-servicing...

  “Continued improvement in bank customers’ perception will depend largely on the big four avoiding any further negative publicity, as we have seen that Westpac, the CBA and most recently ANZ have all suffered major setbacks in customer satisfaction following negative market announcements,” says Norman Morris, industry communications director at Roy Morgan Research." --NAB customer satisfaction rating reaches record high but home loan customers not any happier: Roy Morgan NAB’s customer satisfaction rating lifted 0.7 percentage points to 80.3% in September to reach the highest score for a big four bank since Roy Morgan began researching customer attitudes to the banks in 1996. The bank’s customer satisfaction rating has improved by 3.8 percentage points over the past 12 months to be the “clear market leader” among the big four banks. However, NAB’s rating is due to the satisfaction of its non-home loan customers ( up 5.2 percentage points over the past 12 months), whereas...

Watch this video and see how badly the banking system has unraveled around the world in 2012. An "ECOSYSTEM OF BANKER CORRUPTION" is now beginning to feed on itself in the banking industry around the globe. It's spreading like a virulent disease from country to country. Recently some bankers have committed suicide and others have deserted their homes and jobs and are going into hiding apparently unable to face the consequences of their actions. Bankers appearing before Parliamentary and Senate hearings in other countries are admitting complicity in causing the financial meltdown. Some bankers with a conscience want us to believe they are truly SORRY for the disaster that they have visited on millions of people around the world.

ASIC boasted of a conviction in September 2012 against Daniel Nguyen.....relating to pay slips and bank statements.  ASIC used the new provisions of the NCCP Act, the ultimate SHAM ACT which place the onus of everything dodgy at the feet of the Brokers and not the Banksters. Yes ASIC pick off the little guys to show "we are doing something"  Remember ASIC stated: "we do not handle consumer complaints."   So this was the bank tipping off someone they wanted rid of?  Perhaps Daniel ought to have demanded the bank's copy of the LAF and the bank's copy of the service calculator.  Sounds like one of ASIC's rare moments of looking as if they are "getting tough!"  Oh please!!!  What about the IMPRUDENT LEND whereby the bank APPROVED the loans.  Hmmmmm Notice how there was no mention of the bank????  So did ASIC assist the customers by suggesting the bank's negate...

Dear Mr Denovan  (copy to Senators Economics Committee of Inquiry: : Banking POST GFC You say there is no legal requirement for loan assessment. Wrong answer Jon….and you are on the Board of COSL? And Gadens do the lion’s share of the mortgages our Members are attempting to extinguish? Our advice is that the Bankers Code says the rights under the Code are additional to law. So the assessment under reg A25 is an additional warranty the bank gives you. In laymen’s terms the Bank is happy you can afford to repay. To assess, these Bankers/Lenders must look at the LAF. If they do assess on EVERY occasion in Low Doc Loans, like us, they will SEE a mix of handwriting. The Banker/Lenders MUST also vet the details with the borrower. A phone call would have been appropriate, yet banks chose NOT to phone customers to check income as a “standard industry...

From a Members:  ASIC (A SIC Joke) complained that people made complaints, but were not forthcoming with the evidence. (Liar liar - pants on fire). ASIC received 400 specific complaints from BFCSA Members four weeks ago.  Senator Williams referred to BFCSA Members and Denise and, ASIC said they had asked Denise for some evidence and she has not given it to them.  And just why should Denise Brailey be doing your job? I have said that very thing to an ASIC Commissioner in a face to face meeting in 2001:  “why am I doing ASIC's job?” “This is not my job to go out and find evidence for ASIC……….you have the powers and the corporate databases to research…..I do not have the powers to go down to the bank and conduct a raid and seize documents.”   In fact ASIC charge me $30 a time to search every document.  ASIC officers must...

Originally published:Complex Commercial Fraud: Proceedings of a Conference held 20-23 August 1991 / edited by Peter N GraboskyCanberra : Australian Institute of Criminology, 1992. (AIC Conference Proceedings; No. 10) ; pp 189-197 by Anne LampeJournalistJohn Fairfax LtdNew South Wales   According to various definitions, fraud is a form of deceitfulness involving theft of money, criminal deception, the use of false representations, dishonest artificeor trick to benefit thieving. It involves one or more parties taking money from others without their knowledge. Complex fraud is merely a more artful and difficult to trace version of this form of activity, usually involving a number of companies (often $2 companies), theactivities of company directors, large amounts of money or assets being shifted - sometimes offshore - and sometimes into other corporate entities, or luxury cars, or homes, antiques, yachts, and paintings, or merely fine living at five-star hotels and the enjoyment of three-star restaurant meals,...

Whistleblowing through disclosure of confidential internal memoranda and correspondence from legal advisers revealed that Partnership Pacific, a subsidiary of Australia's second largest retail bank, had arguably misled some customers and behaved improperly to others. The consequences of that impropriety included personal bankruptcies and loss of family farms. Former Westpac executive John McLennan faced substantial legal costs (an Australian court ruled in favour of the bank regarding copyright and confidentiality breaches); the damage to the bank's reputation was intangible. It has been suggested that perceived mishandling of public relations contributed to the resignation of the Westpac CEO. The bank incurred no government penalties but exposure of the documentation in Parliament after suppression orders initially prevented publication in the media appears to have led to better treatment of some affected customers. The Affair features in Edna Carew's Westpac: The Bank that Broke the Bank (Sydney: Doubleday 1997), Quentin Dempsters's Whistleblowers and Graham...
