The broker overstated clients’ savings in loan applications on five occasions

    I am curious , did the lender not ask for proof of the savings amounts.
    Yes the Broker was wrong and fraudulent , but in my experience the banks I deal with in this space want confirmation of the deposits held.

    From what I read, the broker actually fabricated the document as well. All lenders will ask for proof of savings, especially with an SMSF loan.

    Only 3 Years....
    Recently I have let a couple of deals go because the narrowly miss servicing requirements only for them to be picked up elsewhere...
    The result of committing a purposeful fraud should be expulsion.

    SEQ Broker I could not agree more. We have an overcrowding of brokers with the entry level way too low in my opinion.
    This guys actions were fraudulent. This is a criminal activity related to people's financial dealings and he should be banned for life.
    Sounds like the whole organisations operations are questionable. Hopefully there will be criminal charges also.

    I wholly agree with all the comments, doesn't the lender ask for proof of savings ie statements

    These guys (criminals) were into all sorts of crooked activities - I bet they even took commissions from developers agents, given that a consumer, in the instance on this link, paid $335,000 for a property that is valued at only $270,000 http://www.smh.com.au/national/when-a-property-scam-hits-home-20121103-28qs4.html
