The Little Book of Missing Money is a consumer's guide to the many tricks one can use to find money that belongs to them plus more than 100 places they can look. This is not about government grants. This is about money that belongs to individuals, charities and businesses, both large and small.
It offers advice to avoid finder's fees and scams, ways to prevent your money from going to the state, what your state allows finders to charge, and more.
The down side to this comprehensive resource is it becoming a favorite reference book of professional finders that charge people for helping them get their money back from some of the many places it can hide. Mary's mission is to teach people how to do this on their own.
"It's not a one time thing," she says. "People need to look at least once a year because new listings are added all the time. They need this information because some listings have time limits."
