Where There Isn't A Will
These people perform a useful service - and it's not a simple as it seems. For each person, you need the certificates (about £10 a pop), and then HM Treasury has to examine the proof. But families are complicated, so probate research companies will charge a commission (from the estate), which rarely covers their costs. An intriguing insight into how this is done.

How much money
are they making out of one inheritence as they are charging every claimant they track down a percentage?

Greed
This programme is made in very bad taste. These people are motivated soley by money, not the interests of the bereaved or relatives of the dead.

Graft
This is essentially free promotion for a private for-profit organisation. Alerts and protests to the channel are ignored.

Will
Why of why don't people make a will they can do it themselves if they can't afford a solicitor get one done as soon as possible that way your money will go to where you want it to go

Vultures
My partner recently received correspondence from one of these companies, asking her to sign away 36 percent of any inheritance she is entitled to and then they will give her the name of the deceased and executor of the estate. I found out the information after one Facebook contact and a couple of hours on the Internet!! Not bad eh?? And I'm not charging her anything. Remember it is not a scam but it is certainly a rip off xx

I agree !!
Well seeing the comments has reinforced my opinion of the human race. These people are parasites and I also am disgusted that you have broadcast this program. But this is what the UK has become. No honour. Like recruitment agencies, service companies, banks, estate agencies - PARASITES - exterminate the lot of them.

Disgrace!
This programme is a disgrace & should not be aired on TV. It makes these people look like saints when they are really money-grabbing rogues! Get rid of it off our screens....
BigK   6:43pm Wed 9 Jan Report Abuse

Disgrace
This programme is exploitive & a disgrace. They are motivated by GREED & it's nothing to do with helping people realise their inheritence. The programme does not show how they have split-up many families, fighting over unknown hand-outs....

Disreputable people
Can't believe you make these people out to be angels!! Only one thing motivates them - money! Without the commission do you really think they would bother? What about the times when they inform the wrong people? Or, the amount of family arguments and bust-ups they cause? And why don't you publish the amount in commission they get???
