Recent Fraudulent Activity By Some "Customers" Seeking Loans

CEO, Phil Johns, has issued a warning to all Members that 3 cases of fraudulent loans have recently been reported to the NCPA.

Although the details of each loan has been slightly modified,  they have the following similar characteristics across all cases with minor detail changes,


*         Employed by the Australian Defence Force - Army

*         Bank with Westpac

*       Supplying very good quality manual bank statements.


Members who were the unfortunate targets of these fraudulent applications report that these cases appear to be ID theft as opposed to fictitious ID's.

 What to do if you notice a similar situation?

  • In such cases, all Members should report such transactions: as ‘suspicious matter transaction’ with AUSTRAC; and
  • notify NCPA will as much detail as you are able so that other Members can be warned and ready for any such fraudulent appllications.
