There are a couple of ways you can work as an unclaimed money finder in Nevada without being a private investigator:
1. You can partner with an existing private investigation firm. Let them know that you would like to find unclaimed money using their office, letterhead, etc.
In return, you give them a portion of your commission. It’s easy money for the PI, and if they’re legitimate, they can do a background check on you to determine if they want to work with you.
2. You can search for unclaimed money in other states. As I have mentioned several times on this site, we are in New York but we do not search for unclaimed money in New York because the dollar amounts are not given on the unclaimed money list.
However, that doesn’t stop us from searching for unclaimed money in other states and it shouldn’t stop you either.
Speaking of unclaimed money lists, I’ll show you a secret on the Nevada unclaimed money search page.
Go to https://nevadatreasurer.gov/UPSearch/ and enter a first name (John for example) or part of a last name (HAR) for example.
Don’t enter a first and last name for this, just one or the other.
You will then get a list of names showing up with whatever you entered.
For example, if you enter HAR, you will get a list of last names with Hart, Harrison, Hardy, etc.
It will then say “Over $100” or “Under $100”. Check out the ones that say “Over $100”.
If you get a large amount, you may want to get in touch with a private investigator and make a deal!
