A mortgage fraud scam by a family in Liverpool topped this week's most read stories.

Thoughts on Countrywide’s troubles and the impact on the broker market also grabbed reader attention, as well as the £82bn adviser opportunity outlined by Craig Calder from Barclays.

Elsewhere a broker firm that sees a huge 95% of complaints to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) upheld was in the news, as well as results and market insight from SimplyBiz.
