Former Western Sydney NAB branch manager, Mathew Alwan, has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment to be served by way of Intensive Corrections Order (ICO) for making false and misleading statements to NAB in relation to 24 home loan applications.

Mr Alwan had previously pleaded guilty to an ‘intention to defraud by false or misleading statement’ charge after he told NAB that an introducer had referred borrowers to make loan applications. In reality, the NAB introducer was Mr Alwan’s uncle, operating under the business name ‘Suit Club’. 

The fraud occurred between October 2013 and September 2015 and resulted in NAB paying Suit Club $56,995 in commissions.

ASIC has taken further action regarding NAB’s Introducer Program, launching civil proceedings in the Federal Court against NAB in August 2019.

As part of the ICO Mr Alwan will undertake 200 hours of community service and ongoing rehabilitation treatment.

ASIC has permanently banned Mr Alwan from providing financial services.
