Susan Henderson said...  Anuj, I would really like to know if you don’t mind what you know about him. I have taken this guy to court, and still have had no satisfaction I getting money owed to me. Maybe if a few people got together, who Bramwell has ripped off, something might be able to be done.As you see my blog is from 2008 and it seems he is still at it.Please email me on   Thanks SusanJanuary 16, 2011 11:10 AM

Susan Henderson said..  I forgot to mention, I contacted Consumer Affairs and told my story..but they can’t do anything either. On a good note, they have his name on file now, hopefully more people will complain about him. January 16, 2011 11:13 AM

Stormy said…  You are not alone. I am also an ex-employee who knows about his dodgy dealings and ripping people off. I am owed lots also and still trying to get anything back. He is scum through & through! ANYONE WHO READS THIS DO NOT WORK FOR HIM OR DEAL WITH HIM AS YOU WILL ONLY BE RIPPED OFF!!!! January 18, 2011 3:44 PM

ANGRY! said… stormy how long ago did you work for this man?  January 18, 2011 5:03 PM

marian said…  Chris also has a niece, Natalie Bramwell who is the same as uncle Fester (Chris Bramwell) She lives in Salisbury and works for Telstra. I did a job for her, organized by him andas soon as she received it she blocked my phone number and has avoided contact and payment. She tells lies very easily so the apple doesn’t fall far form the tree in that family. I am suing them and taking them to court. Don’t get mean get even. February 7, 2011 10:39 AM

ANGRY! said...  hey marian what dealings have you had with chris bramwell and whats your opinion on how he runs his buisness. February 7, 2011 3:27 PM

Susan Henderson said…  I took him to court, won my case and still get my money out of him.By the way I ran his office for him so anyone want any information, let me know… February 7, 2011 8:48 PM

Jennifer said…  No this person did work for an old business I had in finance and Bramcor isa totally different company with no Finance ties. Ms Henderson worked on a contract basis however was attempting to claim holiday pay and also after we ceased her contract to work continued to send invoices. We had since found out that this lady did have mental issues and financial issues caused by her son. We are unable to contact her as she has left the address that is listed with ASIC as her address. In conclusion we are open and honest with our dealing with her and all employees past current and future, when sales are made commissions are paid in accordance with our written agreements with contracted staff. If you have any further inquiries please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards Chris Bramwell February 14, 2011 9:28 AM

Ro said...  Chris (ok Jennifer) firstly thank you for your invite to contact you however it would appear that none of your advertised contact work. Secondly – I was a business and personal friend of Sue at the time and remember well the verbalpromises/commitments that you made AND the actual hings that took place. I suggest to you that Sue is not telling porkies and you had ample time, before Sue moved, and 3 court appearance (which you chose not to attend) to address any perceived misunderstanding between the two of you. Thirdly – Has anyone got anything ever in writing from this chap ??? It would appear not !! as then he may be held account. If he has put pen to paper then I am surprised he has managed to avoid fraud charges. To end: I have not been effected by this ‘gentleman’s ?’ dealings but urge all of you who have been to get together and prevent him hurting others. February 14, 2011 12:31 PM

Susan Henderson said...  Although it is hurtful to think you have been ripped off or you are being ripped off, some people in this world are very good with words and have a no care factor for others. Please join me in helping to prevent others in getting hurt. On a final note: when I was issuing my court summons, back in 2008, you may all be interested to know that the bailiff told me he knew this person well?? February 14, 2011 12:41 PM

Chris Bramwell said…  Ms Susan Henderson, you never worked for me Chris Bramwell and I do not owe you any monies, wages, salaries, entitlement of whatsoever nature. As there is no Judgement by you against myself and public court records will verify this, therefore your behaviour on this web site is libellous and defamatory that caused me to suffer loss and damages and I will be suing you for compensation. Therefore all these false allegations must be removed from this web site and the blog deleted from this web site forthwith and an unreserved apology be given by you to me in writing within seven days (7) from the posting of this notice to you. Finally note that legal proceedings will be instigated against you and injunctive relief will be sought against you for compensation referred to above. March 18, 2011 9:39 AM

Chris Bramwell said...  Ms Marian Hammond  Your comments are noted however you have distorted the facts, you account has been paid in full which you have acknowledged in writing. You stated that Ms Bramwell blocked your calls, that, is not possible, no person on any mobile phone or landline here in Australia and for that matter overseas has the facility on their phones to block any incoming number calling their phone. Telecommunication Companies, Optus, Telstra, Vodaphone and all others cannot block incoming calls to individual mobile phones or land lines that, is, against the privacy laws here in Australia and overseas. A simple call to any Telecommunication Company would verify this so again you are not telling the truth again. March 18, 2011 10:39 AM

Susan Henderson said…  Chris -My comments stand .Call me a liar if you wish. But the truth is the truth, and I have truth on my side. I have spoken to a number of people with whom you have had business dealings with, I have their permission for any extra evidence that may be needed. These people will back me up in court if necessary. March 19, 2011 12:23 PM


katrina said…  Susan – We have all of this man’s so called promises in writing. I will be emailing you in the near future. You were working for him at the time we were dealing with him , I spoke to you a number of times on the telephone when I called from Mackay to find out what was happening with our house and contract – we would be more than happy to support any court action you would like to bring against him. And just for the records sake, we were dealing with Australian Eagle Finance he has obviously since changed company name to Bramcor. Regards Kat & Phil              April 24, 2011 6:19 PM

shona said… Please note , his never made a comment to me ,as it’s all True, and he still hasn’t repaid me my hard earnings back.He has cheatered meand many others. All of what he has done to people are true, or else this web site wouldn’t be here. Think read this ,and be smart.KEEP AWAY FROM HIM. You’ll be next on his list.   May 3, 2011 1:42 AM

Susan Henderson said…  BRAMCOR PTY LTD, Have now gone into liquidation…Youcan find the info on the ASIC site… Australian Eagle Finance Pty Ltd was reregistered last year (2010)            June 17, 2011 12:19 PM

Anonymous said...  To Jennifer (if that’s what you like to call yourself  nowadays Chris??). I have not read any lies about you other than those you’ve told yourself here as “honest replies”. I too worked for this “gentleman” (and yes I am being VERY sarcastic using this term extremely lightly!). I was his Finance Manager from Dec05 to Jun06 at his Warry Street Fortitude Valley office (Australian Eagle Finance / International). Myself and at least 3 other staff that I am aware of have never been paid our fninal owed salaries nor superannuation. For myself that included 4 weeks salary, 7 mths super and 7mths PAYG taxes for which I was forced to lodge a PAYG Witholding Stat Dec for the 2005/6 fin year because Chris refused to issue a Payment Summary. At the time I was employed Chris had already had 1 company struck-off by ASIC for failure to lodge tax returns. To my knowledge, at the time of my resignation he was also under investigation by ASIC for the same reasons as well as trading while insolvent and also being sought by ATO for failure to pay PAYG taxes for his employees, failure to lodge personal and company returns and failure to pay Super Guarantee Charge for his employees. Not to mention the Industrial Relations Commission for monies and costs awarded to his ex-employees for incalculable breaches of various Federal and State Employment Awards. Also to my knowledge Chris still (to this day) owes several AEF customers tens of thousands of dollars, at least one builder up at Woody Point QLD (Correnti Homes) to the tune of around $100k (John Correnti would love to hear from you Chris!), a commercial real estate agency in Wooloongabba for nearly $10k for breaking the lease a couple of months early on the Fortitude Valley office (we even had the R/E turn up to the office one day to tell us all to get out which was the first his staff knew that he’d not paid the rent!). Chris also openly spent customers’ monies that were supposed to go towards deposits for their new homes that he had promised to secure for them on buying food for himself and his dog and other personal expenses for himself! Oh, and did I mention the poor tradie who Chris refused to pay $500 to for bulding him an executive Board Room table (only ever used as a lunch table!)and the sign writer for the large laminate AEF sign he hung outside? So Chris, if you’d care to reveal your current address and “actual” (i.e. NOT phony!) contact details I’d be happy to pass them onto everyone who wants a piece of you (including the authorities so they can re-open their cases against you)! Kindest regards, Peter Gibbins (remember me?). June 27, 2011 1:43 AM


Susan Henderson said... Chris, I have the document of the court judgement against  you. If you would like a copy of it, I’ll happily send it to you. August 10, 2011 7:48 AM

Anonymous said... About time! Bramcor is finally in liquidation but it still seems that Chris continuing to scam people & leave pain & destruction in his wake. It sickens me to know that he can continue to damage peoples lives & livelihoods without a care in the world. Stealing, lying, cheating, scamming and none of this limited to just Australia, no, he wants to go anywhere &everywhere he can to rip people off. Chris – how do you sleep at night? August 18, 2011 5:59 PM

Anonymous said...  It’s scary to know that he is still doing the same thing to people now as he was to unfortunate people over 5 years ago. How can the system let this scum slip through..?          August 18, 2011 6:13 PM

Grandchild of a TRUE Digger said...  Watching the veterans from Long Tan on the news this evening, seeing the courage, selflessness & bravery of these incredible men who served for our country makes me wonder how Chris can consider himself at all like them or at all even close – he belongs to a different species entirely. I wonder how he would feel if his beloved Victoria Cross friends knew of his integrity (of complete lack thereof) & dealings with genuinely decent people. I’m sure they would be shocked & disgusted as they well should be. I think they have a right to know, as I am sure they would not tolerate such a mouse amongst men (sorry I didn’t mean to offend mice). Certainly not a rat, at least not one from Tobruk! Maybe those are the peers by which he should be judged…..August 18, 2011 7:23 PM

Anonymous said...  I knew this man quite well and I believe he has a mental problem. I can’t believe that he has not been dealt with years ago as to his conduct. He does not have any remorse, nor does he have any idea of how to set up a business and then run a business. He thinks he is great but sadly that is not the case. He is a short fat man that waddles around full of his own self importance. I believe in “what goes around, comes around.” I hope it catches up with him soon.                       August 22, 2011 5:18 PM

Pira said…  After almost two years of no contact from this prick, he called and told us our ‘house’ was ready to move in to. We had paid a deposit and thought all was lost. We were so excited, we broke our rental agreement (which Chris told us he would fix up the monies owing…not done)and moved in.Chris contacted us almost daily for two weeks prior to moving in to our ‘house’ to make sure if we were ‘ok’.He also told us that ALL of our monthly salaries were to be deposited directly into an ‘account’ he had set up. He would then give us our living expenses. On the day of moving, our electricity wasn’t connected (another oversite from Chris) and our water tank pump wasn’t connected (used for our laundry and toilets). We couldn’t get hold of him, and neither could the builder that was supposed to connect the pump once we were in.It took two weeks to get the pump on and just as long to get some form of contact. I am so glad my salary wasn’t getting put into HIS account or we would’ve been screwed. Two months later we recieved a call from the ACTUAL owner of the house who wanted to meet us. Such a lovely person who was blindsided by this con artist. After Chris found out, he gave us an eviction notice and told us we had no right to talk to her and we should’ve contacted him first(bit hard when it goes to your answer phone every time!). About a week after this incident, we were visited by ASIC who told us what was going on and that this scam artist was under investigation. We gave them ALL information that Chris gave. We are still in the house and dealing with a perfectly lovely ‘real owner’. Susan, I’d love to find out how the court action goes and happy to provide any extra leverage. December 1, 2011 3:33 PM

Susan Henderson said...  So glad things worked out for you Pira. How long does it take ASIC to investigate this crook? Bramcor was closed down by ASIC, and Bramwell immediately opened another company. I don’t understand how they allow this to happen. December 9, 2011 8:09 PM

Why is it that various regulators are aware of his practices and have been for years but he is again and again allowed to resurface under different company names ????? I certainly would expect to have the keys thrown away if i purposely set out to harm others in this way. 02/29/12 09:57 AM

Anonymous….Wow…At last this man has been brought to light and someone has used the initiative of showing him up to the world on the internet…………… Congratulations
This man still owes me $15,000 AUD and I still have a court case pending on him, I also took him to court for beating me up. When I told him I was cutting ties with him, to pay me my money and I would go it alone. – The horrendous lies he told was so laughable that the magistrate said he had heard of a woman scorned but this man was something else. My now husband was then my fiancé was in the court at the time and He implied that I was in love with him and all sorts of rubbish – I won the court case and he got two hundred hours community service which I believe he paid off.
He was selling property to South Africans without a license borrowing a license from one of his mates…. he also tried to get into business with a friend of mine over in south Africa who invented a thief proof steering wheel of which he has the demo. He tried to get 4bc Radio station involved in this until I exposed him.
This slime ball anonymously reported to the police that I had unlicensed fire arms at my house…he then bragged to clients in South Africa about what he had done who immediately contacted me. This was his way of trying to scare me….. The police came to my house twice to search the property and obviously found nothing, although I did have fire arms at the time they were licensed and left in South Africa.
He also tried to get his wife Meglena who he met on line and was from one of the Russian countries into the country on the false pretense that she was a director of one of his companies. ( this is second wife – the first wife was Vera some one or the other) He was reported to the immigration department by a friend of mine who was a migration officer at the time but who is now deceased.
This man has also tried to run me down to friends not knowing that I have been best friends with them for more than 50 yrs…what they told me was enlightening to say the lease. Talk about defamation and he has the cheek to threaten on here with deformation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – If he wants defamation I can give it to him!!
If you need any of my documentation please let me know and I will make it available.
Disgusted Pre Associate of this slime ball!   10/18/12 06:05 PM

Anonymous….Mr Bramwell has been scamming people for 20 years. Hey preys on vulnerable families. My dealings with him left me with my car being repossessed, no money to pay my rent..and I watched my good credit history go down the tubes, not to mention my health deteriorating through the stress of it all.. Hoping he will get what he deserves.. The man is still out there scamming more unsuspecting buyers and investors.  10/17/12 08:38 AM
Ieva Downie….Well, well, well. Looks like FINALLY we may be able to get this sad excuse for a human being. On the other hand, he reminds me of the infamous Peter Foster who keeps coming up with scams and getting away with them pretty much. I worked for the toad for 5/6 months and then I noticed that certain things weren’t adding up. At that time, one of his clients came to me and revealed quite a lot of things about him. He was overseas at the time and I was able to have a good look around his files. His “rap sheet” runs to quite a few pages. Interesting reading. He missed paying me one week and that was enough for me. I was not going to be involved in anything fraudulent even by default, so I left and armed with a lot of information, this client and I went to the Fraud Squad in Brisbane. The Fraud Squad were not very efficient and after some time we simply gave up. This all sounds like not very much, but I will personally talk to anyone and tell them the whole story if they wish to hear it. I will do ANYTHING to have this man brought to justice. The collateral damage his actions cause is untenable and for me personally, he set me on a path which I am still recovering from.
As for the Solicitor’s letter in this blog- trust me – no Solicitor wrote that. Chris sees himself as knowing it all and he loves writing things like that letter, using ridiculous phrases he’s come to know over the years. Trouble is he can’t spell and many of the phrases are outdated and over the top. His arrogance is only surpassed by his certainty that he will never get caught. His day will come and I will be part of it with the greatest of pleasure. I must mention that he has given false information on many occasions to the Australian Tax Office, a bank and has illegally used the letterhead of a Real Estate Agent to conduct his dodgy business.
What goes around comes around and the toad’s day is coming faster and faster. 10/18/12 08:08 AM

Anonymous….Yeah Chris if you are reading these posts how about paying me my $15,000 you owe me??? – you horrible oxygen thief!! How I wish I had never set eyes on your disgusting face or ever heard your name. You are despicable the way you have no hesitation in hurting anyone who crosses your path financially.
He did the same to me keeps changing addresses and bogus numbers that you have to be on your toes to keep up with him, but it is good the more of us on the watch for this man and the more we warn about him the harder it will be for him to disappear every time he is faced by a claim – your time will come when you will have to face each and every one of us! – you know who I am – your nemesis

Anonymous….Beware of this Crook he has more moves than a centipede, he too ripped us off for $9,000- in 2006,we repotred him and his business to ASIC, Queensland police and OFT, he purported to be an Estate Agent and Financier, which he denied ever being involved of puporting to be an agent(Have copy of his letter stating this). He had agreed to refund some of the money paid but he never returned calls, after a while, so we went to his office at Fortitude Valley to our suprise it was vacated, he never at any time tried to make any contact, until such time as we lodged a complaint with OFT, after quite a long time thay had managed to track him down, and he then offered to come to a deal with a refund of some of the money, but guess what he even gave them the OFT a dud phone number and dud email address, a leopord never changes his spots does it Mr Bramwell.
I know you are reading these blogs so if you are still willing to negotiate I will be pleased to receive your payment of $9,000- from 2005 at 15% interest calculated daily until payment less your costs of $1,200-, a fair deal don’t you think, by your standards.
