    could someone "legally" get into the business of notifying people that they have unclaimed money...
    I.E. Hey I know where you can find 1000 bucks, I'll tell you for a 10% cut.. ?

    I'm guessing not, but who knows?

    I'm not famliar about this within Canada, but I know for certain that they excist in the US. If you have escheated funds (or shares of stocks) the company tries to search for you, and tells you just what you explained pretty much (not sure about the percentage, and I don't think they tell the person the $ amt they have )

    I am surprised that the fine people of Nigeria haven't got in on this yet.

    I'm fully expecting that now that I entered my name in that field, I'll be receiving an email from someone in Nigeria telling me they found money for me. :lol:

    There's actually a tv show that follows a couple of people as they try to find all the people in a family who can make a claim on part of a deceased family member's estate. They can't get anything unless they get all of the family members to agree to their terms, so they don't discuss the value of the estate until everyone has signed their paperwork. In the episode I saw, I think they took about 30% of the estate.
