Main Document

Quote: "The process is very straight forward as they do all your money recovery work for you."

In Australia, when the legally entitled owner of money cannot be located within a specified time frame, the money is declared "lost".

Wealth Finders provides a service to both Australian and International clients by assisting individuals and companies to recover money to which they have a legal entitlement.

Each year the Australian Government collects million of dollars that has been declared "lost" or "abandoned". Institutions and/or organizations are legally bound to transfer this money to the Government when they cannot locate the owners within specific timeframes.

With a background in Human Resources and Accounting, Wealth Finders utilizes their considerable expertise to identify and track down "lost" funds, they then trace and notify the legally entitled owners where ever they are located in the world. The vast majority of their customers are totally unaware of their "lost" money prior to being contacted by Wealth Finders. You can also request their services to recover money you know is owing to you.

There are a variety of sources of "lost money", including:

  • Interest
  • Refunds
  • Dividends
  • Trust Accounts
  • Superannuation
  • Lottery winnings
  • Wages/ Salaries
  • Insurance policies
  • Deceased Estates
  • Bank account money
  • Un-presented betting slips
  • Un-presented/void/stale checks
  • Company Liquidation Disbursement

Searching for Lost Money and Making a Claim:

A claim for "lost" money can easily made through the Wealth Finders website (wealthfinders.com.au) by requesting and completing their Service Agreement. Once received, details regarding the documentation needed to support your claim will be forwarded to you. The process is very straight forward as they do all your money recovery work for you.

Note: Having personally used the services of Wealth Finders I can certainly vouch for their authenticity and would be happy to provide a reference to anyone considering their "finding lost money" services - Ian L.,Owner of Disabled World.
