NAB and Aussie Home Loans fraud to be examined by banking royal commision

Fraud at Aussie Home Loans will be examined by the banking royal commission’s first public hearing later this month.

The financial services royal commission is targeting lenders over alleged cases of home loan fraud, along with unsuitable credit card limit increases and their car financing practices.

The big four banks will all feature prominently in the inquiry's first round of public hearings focusing on inappropriate or unsuitable lending in home loans.

The commission's target will be "fraudulent brokers and broker arrangements" at Aussie Home Loans.

It will look at the Commonwealth Bank's "accreditation of brokers and broker arrangements".

It will look at NAB's "Introducer Program and fraudulent loan applications".

The Introducer Program was rewarding "introducers" who successfully referred people to the bank for a loan, despite many of the applications being submitted with false information including doctored payslips. 

The bank issued 2300 home loans, which mainly went to foreign buyers of Australian property sold via "introducers."

Twenty bankers were caught breaching lending policies.

The hearings will be held in Melbourne from March 13 until March 23.
