I paid these people $ 18.00 to search for a life insurance policy that I am sure my mother had.
A few days later I got an email listing unclaimed property in the State of Rhode Island under her name.
I had know about that for a while it just wasn't enough to bother with.
I emailed Unclaimed Assets and informed them of that. Never heard back. I wrote them again telling them I would do what I am doing.
