A woman has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years' jail time after tricking the Australian arm of a global bank into lending her more than $700,000 by using fake documentation

    This is why all Brokers MUST sight the original of ALL documents that support the application. This for your own protection

    I don`t get this one. Why would this woman do this to get the loan knowing she would default. That just defies logic. I wonder if she would have gotten away with this application had she gone through a broker. I would suspect not. Had she gone through a broker in the first place and been told to wake up to herself she would not be going to jail. Brokers should be used at all times by the public it would seem!!!

    near enoughs good enough in branch land . They are no where near under the same compliance regime as Brokers . But as a Broker , I'm more than happy for the Banks to keep employing half arsed, 20 year old , inexperienced Personal Bankers . It makes my role very easy

    This is not the first time this woman has been jailed for fraud. The house she bought at 19 Orient st Gladesville is in my neighbourhood and talk in the area is that she spent 12 months behind bars prior to this conviction.
    Some people will never learn, allthough, her husband must have had some influence on this matter.

    To the anonymous person that has written a comment on this story , you need to remember that she has kids that go to school in the area .
    And you need to mind you own business .
    And get a life as this does not affect you

    I do agree, it is foolish to put someone's personal address online. It is nobody else's business and this woman and her family will have to live with these consequences.

    what do you mean it does not affect us , of course this does. and also if the issue went to court it will be in the public domain , address details and all. How dare you accuse us of minding our own business. This is a clear fraud and again it proves you need to site original documentation no exceptions. also if the person has previously been incarcerated from a similar conviction I suppose a gaol term longer should be the way to show how delicate and important our financial system is with something that involves us all. If anyone ever does not want their family involved in the spotlight maybe they should think of what they are doing the first place before they go out and test our legal system.
