I saw this pamphlet at the bank the other day and felt like I had to share it. Made me laugh in disbelief!

I saw that too but didn't think to take a photo. I guess they figure that there are good odds that any customers physically in the bank are there because they need more money.

Have you seen the CBA's "let us help you get ready for work" ads? They have special credit cards for the newly employed/student contingent cause hey,  now that you are making money, why not spend what you don't have?

I saw one like that but I thought it was ANZ. I might be wrong, or it might even be both.

It could well be ANZ, I don't pay enough attention to them.

That reminds me of the ads on the radio lately for a loan with the sole purpose of rebuilding your credit score after bankruptcy so presumably you can take out even more loans.  WTF?  No wonder poor people stay poor when they are bombarded by shit advice FROM THEIR BANKS like taking out loans to make it easier to take out more loans.
