ABank accounts, insurance payments, wages, commissions, dividends, stocks, utility deposits or other intangible property become unclaimed money when they go unclaimed for an extended period of time as specified by state laws.
What is Unclaimed Property?
AAn asset or interest in property has been discovered where some or all of the entitled owners, heirs and beneficiaries are missing or unknown.
Why have I been contacted now?
ATo protect our firm’s investment in time and expenses locating entitled parties, generally, we refrain from revealing exact details until all entitled parties have signed our simple, contingency agreement.
Why can’t you tell me all of the details now?
ACases are referred to us through the courts, lawyers, bank administrators, insurance companies and our international network of researchers and associates.
How did The Argent Firm learn of this matter?
AUntil you actually receive assets as a result of our efforts, you owe us nothing. When the assets are distributed to you, at that time, you owe The Argent Firm the percentage on the Agreement that we ask you to sign. Additionally, California State law prohibits investigators and heir finders from charging fees greater than ten (10%) percent of any assets, abandoned or unclaimed property you, in fact, recover. ALL services provided are included unless your matter involves an estate or probate claim.
What will it cost me?
If for any reason, I never receive assets, what will I owe The Argent Firm?
AThe answer depends on where the matter is pending and if the property remains to be sold. Court schedules and statutory time requirements vary from one jurisdiction to another. In most cases distribution is made with 12-18 months. Larger jurisdictions may take longer.
When will I receive these assets?
AThe courts determine the shares based on evidence provided by our office, the total number and relationships of heirs, and the laws of the state or foreign country in the case.
Who determines my share?
AInheritance taxes are deducted before distribution of your assets. There is no initial tax liability.
What about taxes?
AYou cannot be held responsible for debts. Debts are paid before distribution and if debt exceeds assets, you will not receive any assets, nor would you have any liability.
What about debts?
AYou have no liability. Any property is sold and your distribution is based on your share of assets remaining after payment of debts.
What about liability in connection with any property?
AAssets held in trust for more than three years could be turned over to the State Attorney General for permanent “escheatment” proceedings or, your unclaimed share may be distributed to any other claimants whose identities have been made known to the Court.
What if I do nothing?
AReview our risk-free agreement, then sign and return to our office as soon as you can. The sooner we receive your agreement, the sooner we may file your claim.
