    Hi all,
    See email below received from mortgage broker. He is trying to extort money from me and contacting after hours. I have done nothing but try to get a hold of this broker for the past three weeks and then he sends me this email last night. I don't know what he means by false documents and not speaking to the solicitor I have been working with her on settlement?

    EMAIL FROM BROKER:

    Hi @Gemma,
    The story is a bit hard to follow. However:
    1. If you believe that your personal safety is in danger, you should immediately contact the Police.
    2. You may also consider making a formal complaint about the mortgage broker's conduct. Without knowing the mortgage broker's business and their complaints process, the ASIC MoneySmart website has general information on "How to complain" that may assist you.
    Hope this helps. Please keep us updated with your progress.
