A former mobile lender for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia is to stand trial for conspiracy to defraud the bank, after allegedly providing false documentation for loans totalling more than $36 million.

Melbourne man Andrew Cameron is committed to stand trial for one count of the common law offence of conspiracy to defraud, after a five-day committal hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, which concluded last week (5 October 2018).

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has alleged that Mr Cameron conspired with others to defraud the big four bank by providing false documents and information in support of home loan applications.

ASIC alleges that the conspiracy involved approximately 121 loan applications and resulted in the CBA lending approximately $36,420,040.00.

Mr Cameron has entered a plea of not guilty and remains on bail.

More to come.
