The First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) scheme was introduced on 1 July 2000 to offset the effect of the GST on home ownership. It is a national scheme funded by the states and territories and administered under their own legislation.
Under the scheme, a one-off grant of up to $7000 is payable to first home owners that satisfy all the eligibility criteria.
You'd have to be able to fulfill all the requirements:
We check that applicants have satisfied the residence requirements. The onus is on you as the applicant(s) to prove, when requested by us, that you have lived in the property as your principal place of residence within the specified 12 month period.

You are eligible if:
-all applicants are a natural person, not as a company or trust
-at least one applicant is an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia
-all applicants including their spouse /de facto partners have not owned a home in Australia prior to 1 July 2000 (this includes investment homes)
-all applicants including their spouse/de facto partners have not resided in a residential property in Australia for a continuous period of at least six months in which they acquired an interest in, on or after 1 July 2000
-at least one applicant occupies the home as their principal place of residence for a continuous period of at least six months commencing within one year of the completion of the transaction to which the application relates. Where an applicant was a member of the permanent forces of the Australian Defence Force and all applicants were enrolled on the NSW electoral roll as at the commencement date of the eligible transaction dated on or after 21 October 2009, then all applicants are exempt from the residency requirement.
-you and all joint applicants are at least 18 years of age
-you and/or a joint applicant (including spouse/de facto partners) have not already received a grant.
Now that I look at it, it seems like a lot of fraud and fake ID docs just to get $7000, and there are better things you can do with a fake ID. There should be a way to beat the system though, maybe scamming the people who are actually going to get issued with that grant.
They already know this is happening. Here in the US I applied for my $8,000 tax credit for my new house and haven't gotten shit yet because they had to review it due to all the fraud. So I guess...fuck you I want my $8,000!
