What can you do to fight a Bank?

Here are some ideas. Pick what best suits you.

    • Ask for compensation in writing. There are a few good advocates and mediators that will help you cheaper than lawyers. There are a couple of sharks also. Make sure you get referrals from other victims.
    • Ask for help and help others. Like our Bank Rip-offs Facebook page and other support groups like BRN & BFCSA.
    • Get on Leon Ashby’s mailing list at Senator Anning’s office for progress on bank compensation and other matters.
    • Lodge complaints with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). They may help you get information but AFCA is corrupt and biased to the banks so you may not get a favourable outcome.
    • Tell your story in a short video and post to Facebook. Tell your story in one page.
    • Download media videos about other victims. Add transcripts of what was reported and promote these videos.
    • Protest outside a Bank branch. Tell your story, hand out your 1 page and ask for donations from the public.
    • Talk to your local Member / Senator. Protest outside your local politician’s office if they do nothing.
    • Go to the media. Keep it simple for them. Be persistent. Fight hard.
    • Banks and their lawyers use very aggressive tactics. Read The Art of War & Fight like a Girl (or listen on YouTube).
    • If Bank lawyers treat you badly lodge complaints internally, to the law society or protest outside their office.
    • Be kind to yourself and your family. Practice self compassion (YouTube Kristin Neff). You can’t win if you are not strong.

You may have to hurt the bank to get them to take notice of you.

Damaging their reputation costs them business. You have to do this repeatedly. Don’t give up after one go.

If you fight a bank in court you are at the mercy of a corrupt legal system and clever bank lawyers. The courts are the banks preferred battle ground. There are many horror stories and little justice. Many people have lost everything and many years of their lives.
