The FSCA has received numerous tip-offs that several organisations and or individuals operate a so-called ‘Financial Claiming Agent’ or "Tracing Agents" for beneficiaries of unclaimed benefits.
In particular it has been reported that:
• Some of them charge consultation fees to any person who seeks their help in claiming a benefit;
• These so-called "Tracing Agents" inform claimants that they have direct access to the information regarding their fund credit; and
• That they either work for the Financial Services Board or are a registered and approved Tracing Agent.
The FSCA has warned members of the public to be cautious when dealing with organisations or individuals who claim they are officials that can assist them.
It has also been reported to the FSB that some of these agents even have different administrator’s forms that they use and often even inform them of an exact benefit due to them. They also sometimes provide them with a confirmation letter of their claim.
