In 2008 I had a property settlement with my spouse and I received my home as part of the settlement. At the time I had three children of school age to support and I was receiving a wage from our company just for that year as part of the settlement but after that all support stopped. I had a nervous breakdown in 2008 and a brain haemorrhage later in the year. Somehow I went into the bank and borrowed $269,000 home loan but not in one lump sum I apparently when in 11 different times and added to the home loan in one year and I don't drink, smoke or gamble and I can only account for $40,000 of the loan. The bank didn't even think that a lady that was so sick and with three children should not have been capable of paying such a high loan. that is the first part of the complain the nest is that I have paid the loan now for eight years on disability and I have only paid $6,000 off the principle amount. The payment are $355 a week and I think I have paid over $120,000 and I have only seen $6000 come off the loan.

did they put anything in writing to you ?

I think each time I got a print out of something but everything was lost when I was sick and the family packed up all the house and tidyed up the office. things went out ot the shed and got water damaged and were destroyed but, I have asked the bank for copies of everything. I went into the bank and asked for everything but I never heard back.
