Somewhat burried within the Corporations Act 2001 is the definition for Providing Finance...
According to the Corporations Act 2001, providing finance means:
(a) lending money; or
(b) giving guarantees or security for loans made by someone else; or
(c) drawing, accepting, indorsing, negotiating or discounting a bill of exchange, cheque, payment order or promissory note so that someone can obtain funds.
The last paragraph is the nugget... it expands out into twenty (20) different ways to provide finance. In conjunction with points (a) and (b), that means there are twenty two (22) ways to provide finance according to the Corporations Act 2001.
Consider that only ONE of the twenty two ways to provide finance is by LENDING MONEY!!
What is the significance of this? Twenty one ways to provide finance that seemingly don't involve repayment... If repayment was involved, surely it would be described as lending... right?
Who is this type of finance available to? Can you and I walk in off the street and get this type of finance? Or is this what the banksters do without our knowledge and trick us into a repayment agreement that is nearly impossible to get out of, let alone question?
If a loan did take place, surely your bank would be able to provide the evidence they loaned you their money... right? Experience tells a different story. Banks have denied us the right to question a loan agreement. See also article on today's courts and how they are accessories to the denial of right.
Take this along to your local bank and walk them through it. My suggestion is to approach bank staff with the intention of sharing this information instead of finger pointing. Likely that the bank tellers did not write the Corporations Act 2001, nor do they participate in the processes in monetizing your promissory note. The CEO and CFO is a different story...
