This example is not perfect, but it is a great start. I also included a comment made on FB, so if anyone would like to use this model and incorporate the suggestion made, feel free to DO so.
This post came to my attention today. I copied & customized it & will mail it to the CEOs of Westpac & ANZ tomorrow. Exciting times! Thx Jennifer Holt

Re: Revised banking practices and new opportunities
An avalanche of information has recently come before me that concerns 1) the true legal status of the world’s banks and corporate governments and 2) the actual process that banks use to create ‘credit’ with the undisclosed use of borrowers’ signatures for the bank’s benefit.
The purpose of this letter is to give you and Bendigo Bank an important opportunity to set new standards of behaviour and intent, as the banking sector navigates: 1) the new legal landscape as mentioned above and 2) new ways of doing business with the public based on transparency and legitimate services rendered.
Let me explain…
The following quote from an IMF publication categorically states that the origin of money loaned by banks actually comes from the “borrower”:
“… under the present system banks do not have to wait for depositors to appear and makes funds available before they can on-lend, or intermediate, those funds. Rather, they create their own funds, deposits, in the act of lending. This fact can be verified in the description of the money creation system in many central bank statements, and it is obvious to anyone who has lent money and created the resulting book entries.” 1
Other excerpts from various Central Bank Statements are just as clear as to the origins of money and the creation of credit through standard negotiable instruments:
• “Banks create money when they lend it”2
• “… banks extend credit by creating money.”3
• “What they do when they make loans is to accept promissory notes in exchange for credits to the borrowers’ transaction accounts.”4
• “…credit of promissory notes (money of account) become money when banks deposit promissory notes with the intent of treating them as cash.”5
• “Commercial banks create checkbook money whenever they grant a loan, simply by adding new deposit dollars to accounts on their books in exchange for a borrower’s IOU.”6
From these quotes it is obvious that the use of promissory notes as credit i.e. cash, is not only legal but also widespread in the industry, a fact not generally known by the public. I will come back to this in a moment.
As mentioned above, it has also come to my attention that according to recent Uniform Commercial Code filings, all the worlds’ banks Bendigo Bank and corporate governments are foreclosed, and therefore all and any alleged debt is cancelled. (Please see attachment for links to the UCC filings).
The reason I am writing to you is to let you know that I have a meeting booked with my local branch manager, with the objective of ensuring they are made aware of the recent foreclosures, how the nature of banking and borrowing has been forever changed and that people are now able to access any additional value they require, for whatever purpose, using the bank’s existing money creation practices.
I will then be providing the manager with the necessary documentation to open a new account with your bank, accompanied by a Promissory Note/Declaration of Value of Deposit to be used as funding to open that account. I will also give them the opportunity to continue to provide banking services to myself, under a revised set of Terms and Conditions that ensures the bank still receives fees from any transactions we may have, whilst maintaining complete transparency and integrity in those dealings.
Please let your branch managers know, so they and your other agents are prepared and awakened to the facts as they stand today, because, as more and more of your customers and the general public become aware of the above matters, many will be seeking to do business with you, only in new and exciting ways.
Finally, this is an open invitation to you personally, to become one of the fore-runners in pioneering these new standards in the banking and financial sector in Australia, and we look forward to a meeting of the public and financial sectors hearts and minds, to create a mutually beneficial partnership going forward.
Without Prejudice, Jennifer Holt

This letter has good intention by offering the banker an opportunity to “pioneer”. My observation is that bankers generally have set definitions for the concept of a loan (lending) that involves proof of collateral. IUV/TOP has, for us of course, changed where the value defining “collateral” comes from and this letter gives info on that, which is grand, however, the traditional mind-set is myopic and will need further proof of the value as “collateral” – because of the difficult to understand legalese in the UCC filings. A banker is not a lawyer and will initially assume it only a purported claim. Whether the money is created on the spot, by signature as these references clearly imply, bankers are still looking to create “secured” loans and we are not seeking a loan (unless it has no conditions for repayment – which of course is not a loan). All efforts to inform are a good step even if not the exact step needed.
