Finding Lost Heirs Case Studies
Finding lost heirs often have unique investigative needs. Most insurance companies and money holders often make it very difficult or impossible for the average person to collect on their loved one’s unpaid insurance policy or other financial instruments such as savings accounts, mutual funds, and stocks and bonds to name a few. The following are examples of how our Maine and Florida investigators have helped people from all over to collect on their loved one’s financial assets.
CASE STUDY #1
A client contacted us for our services and explained that a money holder for her mother’s insurance policy would not pay out on the policy as the money holder cited that there were too many heirs. In this case, there was just two surviving children and five grandchildren. Our investigators got involved and the insurance policy was paid out within six weeks.
CASE STUDY #2
A client contacted us asking for our assistance in collecting on her late husband’s insurance policy. The client stated that the insurance company told her that she was not entitled to the insurance proceeds as her name was not on the policy. We took the on the case and within two months of going back and forth with the money holder they finally paid it out after filling out the required paperwork on our client’s behalf.
CASE STUDY #3
A client contacted us concerning an insurance policy that her mother took out when her mother was in her twenties. The money holder informed our client that they could not pay out on the policy as there was no date of birth or social security number attached to the policy which is a common occurrence from the 1940’s, 1950’s, and 1960’s when they often sold insurance policies door to door unlike today. The money holder said that they would only pay out on the policy if the daughter could show proof of former mailing address from 1954 where her mother was living when she purchased the policy. We were able to show evidence of the former mailing address through a historical records database utilized by both our Maine and Florida Investigators.

CASE STUDY #2
A wealthy doctor client was concerned about paying alimony when he believed his ex-wife was cohabitating with someone else. Our investigators were able to gather enough evidence to prove the ex-wife was indeed living with another man and sharing expenses. The attorney on the case was able to use our factual findings and have the alimony payments ceased.
CASE STUDY #3
A nationally known client was concerned about a plant manager violating a non compete clause by running a side business identical to the one he managed. Through discreet surveillance techniques, we were able to prove that the subject was indeed violating the non compete. In fact, he was using the employers’ materials and vehicles for his own side business and was stock piling an abundance of stolen supplies he took from the employer’s warehouse. We were able to find an off site rented storage facility where he was storing the stolen materials and intent to be used at a later time for his own side jobs. My client sued the subject and was awarded the largest non compete judgment ever awarded in the State of Maine.
