written by reader Executor / Estate…help

By johnhancock, August 31, 2013

I was appointed the executor of my late stepfathers affairs. The estate was worth in excess of 2.5 M. I paid out the the heirs partial payments, and the estate was all signed off and settled after 19 months. Last week after all was settled, I received a phone call from a fellow in Phila. A ” Legal Claimant Services Co. ” he claims that his group found an ” unclaimed ” Mutual fund worth $22K. and for a fee of 25 % if I signed forthcoming agreements they would recover for the estate this mutual fund. Of course he was not about to tell me who the fund was. I searched the ( state unclaimed-property sites ) in the states he had lived in, 3 states / 77 yrs. NO luck….does ANYONE have any idea or suggestions about how I might be able to locate this supposed mutual fund to possibly recover the funds. Respectfully John Hancock
