"The overwhelming Factual Evidence is now at hand"
During the past few months we have produced a series of documents to the public that explains how the banks have been publishing contracts.
This allowed the banks to act dishonestly in relation to the investigations of customer complaints.
The system does not work and the Regulators don’t work.
The responsibility of the banks have discarded customers rights and the Regulators have known this and failed to act to protect the public.
Below are the letters as set out in the Bank Victims series.
Links weakness of the Code of Banking Practice, Code Compliance Monitoring Committee and Financial Ombudsman Service with systemic flaws in self-regulation. It asks whether practices of leading banks constitute criminal behaviour.

Explains how regulators, in 2016, allege ANZ and Westpac - and possibly NAB – “disadvantaged customers by manipulating the nation’s benchmark interest rate, the bank bill swap rate. This distorts lending and borrowing costs for households and businesses.

The CEO’s conduct seems bewildering, as does the underperformance of the ASIC. Without an inquiry there can be no closure on concerns that the banks, prior to 2014, were selling customer loans without full disclosure.
A similar letter has been sent to the Shadow Minister Joal Fitzgibbon to allow both the major parties to establish important Argi Business Policies.
Banking in Australia: Unregulated and Unprotected Part 8 is an open letter to ASIC alleging bank Chief Executives were selling customer loans without full disclosure for ten years.
It further alleges that this practice was carried out with ASIC’s knowledge.

Banking in Australia: Unregulated & Unprotected Part 12: It is alleged that banks, prior to 2014, acted “dishonestly using their position of power to gain an advantage especially for money”. Regulators have not disputed these facts despite this being the Cambridge dictionary’s definition of corrupt.

“The evidence referred to here, notes that a public inquiry into banking practices would find there were many examples where subscribing banks took customers to court for breach of contract while the bank was silent of its policies.”
“The Code is today not the mechanism that the government’s Campbell and Martin review envisioned. Since the Code came into force in 1996, Banks have misled the public, weekended consumer protections, and abused their powers over their customers.”
