What We Don't Work
First of all, We DO NOT work any usual sources that you may be able to find yourself on-line. It may take us several years of tedious research and expense to get to the point that we contact you about assets we have found for you and/or your relatives.
Who Left Me This Money?
It's very possible that no one directly left you the money we have found. Each case is different, but we are finding that many times our clients may be 2-6 generations removed from the person who left the original asset.
Expiration Dates on Windfalls
We must find and account for all the heirs in your case and ask that all cooperate with us in a timely manner so that we can file and prove your claim in a court of law. There is a need for speed as many cases have expiration dates. If a deadline is missed, that opportunity will be lost forever.
Our Agreement Basically Says
In plain English, our Agreement says:
1. You pay no money up-front.
2. We only get paid if and when we are able to get you a check.
3. We will hire and pay all attorney fees per the Agreement.
4. Agreement is null and void if we can't get you paid and you don't owe us anything.
You may want to show our Agreement to your attorney, pastor, or someone else you trust and then complete and forward it to our home office. Once it has been received, your rep will forward you a completed copy for your records and request additional information from you to prove your heirship.
What If I Don't Want This Money?
If for some reason you do not want this windfall, then ask for an Opt-Out Form. You will be required to provide proof of your identity.
Is It Worth My Time & Trouble?
We get asked this question a lot! Sure it is! If we didn't think so, we wouldn't work so hard to find you. Best of all, these windfalls have often changed a client's life for the better. Our feeling is that whatever amount of money you get from this windfall you knew nothing about before we contacted you, is more than you have now!
We contact you with periodic updates:
We will give you periodic updates via e-mail; so do be sure to give us your e-mail or that of a family member or friend. (If you currently do not have an e-mail address, you can establish one for yourself easily and go to your public library to use their computers to access it.)
Do I pay taxes on this money?
Taxes have already been paid on the money you will get. You will receive a 1099-interest statement at the end of the year only if interest has been added to your check. Many countries/states do not add interest.
How much money will I get?
We actually don't know how much you will get until the attorney works it all out according to your position in our heirship report and also the state or country laws involved. It's not a done deal until the Judge in the matter signs the order! Remember, we don't get paid until you do!
When Will I Get This Money?
Once again, it depends upon which court hears the case. Recovering very large amounts of money in some states can often take several years even after we have done all our homework. We will keep in touch periodically to give you updates--preferably by e-mail. Also, it's very important that you keep us updated on new addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, death of an heir, etc.
Our Commission Rate
You'll see our commission rate in the Agreement we send you. The percentage varies depending upon where the money is actually coming from and how much our attorney fees generally run in that area. We pay all usual expenses and attorney fees which are deducted from our commission at the time you are paid. (Proving DNA is not a usual expense and will be born by the heirs)
Still Have Questions or Concerns?
We have tried to answer most of the initial questions we are usually asked. Please feel free to contact your agent about any other questions you may have. They will continue to work with you throughout this process.
