Is my brother a possible guarantor?

I cannot apply for a loan anymore because I have done too many inquiries regarding loan and they already black listed my name. I planned on putting my brother's name under it but wouldn't it be illegal because it was still for me? But there is no law about using other's name to loan. There will be no laws violated so I think it was okay?

    No Name

    Your brother will be a guarantor and it is anyone who will be liable or someone who is willing to pay other's debt. That will be the job of your brother. He will have no choice but to pay your debts if you cannot. In this case, your brother is your guarantor but not legally, comparing it to the jobs a guarantor should have.

    2% cashback on all contactless payments and 1% on online shopping with no minimum spend

    SAFRA DBS Debit Card / DBS Bank

    In my opinion, the SAFRA DBS debit card is simply the best debit card. NSF cardholders can get 2% cashback on all contactless payments and 1% on online shopping with no minimum spend. For everyone else, that is non-NSFs, the minimum spend to enjoy these bonus cashback rates is actually $400. But by and large this I believe is worth it in order to reap the full benefits with the card.

I recommend this card for Man United fans and non-fans too.
