3 Steps You Can Take To Verify
A Money Refund Agent
Ask An Agent for Proof Of Licencing
You should always ask a money refund agent for their certificate of licence registration as proof and validity of their training before signing any forms or commencing work to refund your lost funds. You will need their name, licence number and the state in which they trade.
Verify their details with Unclaimed Money Association
If you are unsatisfied with just an agents proof of licence registration, you can verify their credibility with Unclaimed Money Association. We will tell you whether the agent you are working with is credible and send you any reports of unethical behaviour or schemes they have been involved with.
Check their Website for Credibility
When an agent registers for an unclaimed money refund licence then he/she will recieve (as well as a certificate of licence registration) stamps of credibility including their licence number that they are required to list on their website to identify themselves to consumers as reputable unclaimed money agents.**
**A legitimate agent will always have a website. It’s that simple, if an agent isn’t willing to identify themselves on the internet, then that should be ringing some serious alarm bells.
What Kind of Documents Should I Be Looking For
