I wish they would knock on my door - I could give them chapter and verse and demand a cut of their commission.

Unfortunately, the once Mum-in-law was contacted, the name and town were right, but the deceased had no connection at all. A shame really as there was over a million pounds.

I thought it was a bit mean that the chap did his own research and the company which had worked so hard finding him lost out.

I imagine they take a fair sized commission but they do seem to work long hours to get there and they find people who knew nothing about the deceased a lot of the time.

I thought that too Sue - after all, without the heir hunters he would have had no idea he had money to claim - I think it would have been a matter of courtesy to at least given them something if not use them. Still, that's why that guy lived in an up market thatched roof property and I'm in a semi - too soft for my own good!!
