  • jdufall replied to the topic What about Kalgoorlie? in the forum General Property 11 years, 10 months ago

  • jdufall replied to the topic Refinance in the forum Finance 12 years, 8 months ago

    Hi JamieIt is more of a general question of how flexible the package is. I understand that everyones circumstances are different. The reason that I will never use the ANZ again is that they forged a signature on a security document and allowed someone to sign on as a signatory to a friends business account and fleeced it by $40k.CheersJohn
