Just a general comment on hooked on overages.
This business is far more difficult than it appears on paper. We have been successful with a few overages. However for the average passive investor they will have a really hard time with this and I would bet very few will every succeed. To get any kind of success you need a skip tracing service. you need a data processor. You need to have legal help in a lot of instances. The county tax collectors and treasurers are really not helpful to anyone who is not the beneficary. They see these peoples as profiters ripping off the rightful owner of the overage.
YOu basically need to be a private detective. The most successful company in the us Global recoveries is just that. Mom and pop has no chance in this business. I know I tried. I have the Lexus Nexus skip tracer. A tele marketer. A data processor from off shore legal bills etc etc... A lot of the jurisdictions will only send the funds to the person who is in title to them. We had written contracts with these people and they just kept the money. So then you have to sue the individuals and thats a mess.
So anyway. yes its real but its very very difficult, just like most online buy my method to get rich programs are. the only one making money is the people selling the program.
