16-302MR ASIC permanently bans former Sydney finance broker
ASIC has permanently banned former Sydney finance broker, Jennifer Farias, from engaging in credit activities and providing financial services.
The bannings follow an ASIC investigation and criminal action against Ms Farias who pleaded guilty in the NSW Local Court in the Downing Centre in Sydney to three charges of loan fraud.
ASIC's Deputy Chairman Peter Kell said, 'ASIC's action in this matter demonstrates how serious we are about tackling loan fraud. We won't hesitate to take action against dishonest brokers who falsify documents and remove them from the industry.'
Ms Farias has the right to appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for a review of ASIC's decision.
