Posted June 19, 2018 07:42:54 The National Credit and Banking System (NCBS) is the central authority for all Australians and it is the only authority that offers a national account, a credit card and other services.
It is the primary financial provider for all Australian consumers.
But the National Credit Union (NCU) is now trying to claw back some of that trust and reputation.
The NCU is currently being sued for misleading consumers by claiming its cards are “affordable”.
The lawsuit was brought by consumer advocacy group ACC, and it claims the NCU’s card offers “affordably” low interest rates.
The complaint states the NCB offers a card with a fixed rate of 2.5% on average, compared to 2.8% on other cards.
It adds the NCBS card “will only be eligible for a 1.5-month free credit limit, a 2.75% introductory rate, and a 1% overdraft fee”.
The card is also free of annual fees and charges.
However, the NCBs card is limited to the NCA, with no limit on how many people it can support.
This is an “affirmative denial” of the NCUA’s claims, ACC’s CEO Michael Phelan said.
“The NCU card does not offer the level of convenience and value that other national cards can offer,” he said.
Mr Phelann said the NCUs cards offer the benefits of a national bank account, but they are not the same as an Australian bank account.
“It is an easy to use card that can be used for a range of transactions and with a low deposit requirement,” he told the ABC.
“A national bank is a good thing.
They’re the ones who make the payments.”
The NCBs national card can be viewed on its website for $150.
This would put it at about $1.70 per $100 of spending.
The card will be the primary payment gateway for the NCAB.
It has a $2.50 annual fee and has no overdraft limit.
ACC’s lawsuit alleges the NCTB is not the financial institution it claims to be.
Mr Gartner said the card is “not a national card”, which is a standard credit card, and that the NCBI is the financial body that the card represents.
“We believe that the cards are designed to deceive and to mislead consumers into thinking they are participating in a national system,” Mr Gertner said.
ACC is seeking damages for breach of contract and unfair business practices.
ACC has filed a lawsuit against the NCIB for misleading its consumers.
It also says the NCBT card is a “non-national credit card”, and therefore does not meet the legal requirements for a bank account in Australia.
ACC said its customers were misled by misleading representations about its cards.
ACC claims the card’s terms are not in line with other cards on offer.
“NCB cards are no different from other credit cards offered by banks in Australia, including bank accounts, savings accounts, and loans,” the complaint says.
“However, unlike other cards, NCB cards do not require the consumer to open an account or deposit funds before they can use them.”
A spokesperson for the National Centre for Fair Trading (NCFT) said the agency had no comment to make.
The National Bank of Australia (NBA), which is responsible for the bank’s cards, said it was “not aware of any complaints”.
A spokesperson from the National Consumer Credit Union Association (NCUA) said it had “not heard of any concerns about the NCSB card”.
The NCB said it did not believe the NCBA’s lawsuit was credible.
“Consumers have always had the option of accessing their credit cards through their own bank account or through a credit union.
They can also open and use a NCB card through their preferred bank,” the NCBB said in a statement.
“This option is available to all Australian credit card users, regardless of their credit history.”
