    Fidelity Refund Recovery Solutions says someone owes me money

    I got a letter in the mail from this entity. They says that "our research indicates you have a $XXXXXXX recovery due to you from one or more public agencies in the state of Texas."

    Later they say this; "Note: Your refund is not from the IRS, the Texas State Comptroller or any type of loan."

    I used the state of Texas site to check out any owed money and I don't have any. But that's the Comptroller's site. No other search turns up any money owed to me.

    The letter advises that they only take a portion of the recovered money as their fee. Considering that I didn't even know there was money out there in my name and I can't find it using free methods, should I call them and see what's up?

    Weird - I got a similar letter from the Nigerian lottery saying I had won a handsome prize. I don't remember ever entering a Nigerian lottery but it seems legit.

    That's a lot of X's which I choose to assume means they owe you at least 1,000,000.

    What's their recovery %? I say let them get after it and take the free money at the end.

    It's not $1,000,000. But, yeah, I'm thinking I should at least call and see what the % of the recovery is. I'm guessing it's at least 20%. But 80% of something is better than 100% of nothing.

    Bet your recovery requires a "small" up front fee for "logistics".

    I checked once on a site like that and boy did they owe me. $.76 to be exact.

    Its a ruse to get you to go somewhere and the police can arrest you for warrants for unpaid tickets.

    I wont pay anything up front. Honestly, I'm leery. I've only been back in the state for a little over 3 years after almost 7 outside of Texas. The only thing something could be owed to me is property taxes and I doubt I've overpaid that.

    Could be unclaimed property. Most states have a website where you can check if the state is holding the unclaimed property for you. After verifying you are who they say they are, they send you the check. No fees or anything.

    There are companies that troll these unclaimed property lists and send out letters saying you have amounts owed to you and will collect it for you for the fee. I'd go straight to the state first. Also check the state you did live in for the 7.

    i had a letter sent to me like that once. i called and they said "we don't know if you do, but xx% of people usually do". doesn't hurt to call but don't get your hopes up.

    Yeah, I wish. And if so, it should have been for far, far more than this apparently worth

    I realize you checked missing property for Texas. But maybe its a form letter that auto-fills in the state you live in because for 90% of the people out there, they are owed money by their state fund.

    did you check the other 2 state's missing property fund you lived in previously?

    Yes. I checked both Alaska and washington. About the only thing I can think is due would be my daughters birth year Alaska dividend checks but they aren't eligible to collect those until they turn 18. And I'm reasonably sire that the State of Alaska does not publish that kind of personainfo.l

    Check the state site first. It's free to do it that way and they send you a check within a week.

    UPDATE: Apparently, these folks think I'm overpaying my property taxes. Which if I am, my mortgage company will either credit next year or refund me the difference. That's my choice with my mortgage company. OR...... I could these Fidelity Refund Recovery Solutions idiots 35% to this for me now. I choose to wait 75 days and have the whole amount of the excess given directly back to me by my mortgage company.

    Are you sure that us a good idea? How about you pay me 10% to review this information to ensure you are doing the right thing. Yes, just 10%. I offer this small percentage to you as a friend as my typical take is typically considerably higher.

    Mac,

    for fun i think you should just bump this thread every 3-4 weeks and see how many Shaggy idiots respond without reading your post, or the 30 others already on here.

    you got Luke Duke to pull a TexasEd only 4 days after you last bumped the thread.
