Dear Friend,

How ’bout getting paid $22,860.66 for the privilege for helping people claim their own money?

As strange as that sounds, helping a fellow collect his unclaimed funds is precisely how this check came to be . . .


Getting paid and making good things happen is the definition of a really great business plan. It’s why I practically jump out of bed in the morning these days.

You can call it work if you want, but not me . . . I’m having too much fun to call this “found money” business work.

So okay, I admit it . . .

I like being the hero, putting smiles on the faces of my clients and hearing their excitement on the phone when I tell them, “The checks have arrived” and “Your funds are ready to be disbursed.”

Let me ask you this, and think hard if you must . . .

“When was the last time you got to play HERO,
put a big smile on a favorite client’s face, AND
collect a very big check, all at the same time?”


You don’t want to answer with “never.”

Listen, I’m determined to see that every client walks away happy, and handing over great big checks for funds they never knew they had coming is a sure-fire way to make that happen.

And yes, it’s a very good thing.


Hooked on Overages is the best way to create instant income!

after completing 43 overage deals.

“Will Hooked on Overages Work for YOU?”

You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again, gurus “pitching” their products, saying “join now” because “this is the best thing out there” and if you “sign up today the money will start rolling in tomorrow.”

Sorry, but I can’t make you that promise and won’t insult your intelligence with those kinds of silly claims.

But, do I know an excellent opportunity when I see one?

Yes, I’ve pretty much made a career out of it.

Do I think this is one of those opportunities?

Yes, I do.

Do I chase unclaimed funds myself myself and have I had fabulous success in the found money business?


Is it for everyone?

Probably not.

If you’re already making a decent income doing something you love, and if that something improves the lives of the people you bump into every day, then keep right on doing what you’re doing because this isn’t for you.

Who is it for?

The easiest way to find out is to ask yourself these questions . . .

  • Do you wonder if the money will run out before the month, and know if it does you’ll just have to suck it up and make due with what you’ve got, even if that “what you’ve got” is a whole lot of nothing?
  • Is your J-O-B something you’d like to F-O-R-G-E-T, and the sooner, the better?
  • Are you frustrated having to get out of bed before the sun so you can drive to a job you hate, but you don’t mind the traffic because even sitting in traffic it’s better than actually being at your job?
  • Is the time to tell your boss to “take this job and shove it” long overdue, but you can’t imagine the day you actually hear those words rolling off your tongue?
  • Are the bills stacking up and you’re getting to them as best you can, but your best isn’t good enough and you get calls all day long you know well enough to avoid?
  • Is your mailbox jammed with collection notices and late payments and no matter how hard you try, you know in your heart of hearts things won’t be getting better anytime soon?
  • Does it kill you to have to say “no” to your kids or family members because you can’t afford to give them the things they need?
  • Is the simple act of getting out of bed impossible, and are there days when you don’t feel like doing even that so you don’t?
  • Are your dreams of making a great living and having “nice things” now stowed away in some musty footlocker up in the attic, or maybe lost and gone forever?
  • Have you ever been driving around with nothing much on your mind and notice your entire net worth consists of the spare change in your car ashtray?

If that sounds like you or your current situation, this program is exactly what you’re looking for.

And just so you know, between you and me, it wasn’t that many years ago I was in the very same boat.

I think the material you guys are presenting is awesome!!!

Vic Nechay, investor from New Jersey.


This is How Your Life Will Change Once Your
Found Money Business Is Up and Running

  • “Instant profits” begin showing up so regularly you’ll practically be able to set your watch by them.
  • Forget about wimpy little pay checks. The found money business, by design, creates MONSTER, Five-Figure Finder-Fee checks that go “thud” whenever they hit your bank account. Thud is gooooooood.
  • You’ll experience the wonderful sense of “righting a wrong” whenever funds your clients might have lost to some government agency are returned to them and that agency holding those funds gets exactly what it deserves – nothing.
  • I’m not anti-government or anything close to it. I just think taking someone else’s property and keeping it for yourself is wrong, and I get excited about recovering funds for people who need it more than some big agency.
  • Yes, in this crazy economy one thing is certain . . . foreclosures won’t be slowing down any time soon. Since unclaimed funds result primarily from foreclosure activity, the found money business has never been better positioned than it is right now!
  • If you’re fortunate enough to take this business and run with it, there are almost no boundaries to keep you from growing it as big as you want. If your state isn’t particularly found money friendly, there’s nothing to stop you from working a neighboring state or one across the country.
  • There were many years where I made an average income and led an average existence, and that was fine. Really, I have no complaints and know I did the best I could. But I have to tell you, enjoying some of the nicer things that only money can buy is vastly better. There’s no way of getting around the fact that right or wrong, money solves problems.
  • Are you getting a paycheck from a job you hate but can’t even think about quitting because that job is your lifeline? Now, I’m in no way suggesting you quit your job. That would be foolish. But you know as well as I know that that paycheck is your very own set of “golden handcuffs.” The day you replace it with an independent income stream all your own is the day you remove those shackles and live life to its fullest.
  • If you’ve never experienced a $25,000 check, it may be hard to understand what I’m about to say. But if you have, you know how great it is to be in a business where the possibility of huge checks showing up is real. If your current business doesn’t allow for $25k checks in your mailbox, it’s time to find one that does.
  • My favorite of all is I get to be my own boss . . . and so can you. That means we don’t need some fancy office. I work right from my own home, set my own hours, and if I decide to take the afternoon off, I don’t have to ask anyone for permission, I just lock the door behind me and off I go.


“Show Me the Money, Sonny!”

You’re smart or you wouldn’t be here, on that much we can agree. You know the difference between fact and hype and can sniff out a scam a mile away.

Me too.

And even though you may already know me or were recommended by someone who does, I think it’s important to prove I’m not just out to sell you on a dream.

Yes, this is a real business with real profits.

The best kind of proof, I believe, is checks. Real, honest-to-goodness overage claims that demonstrate real money my partners and I have collected and put in our pockets as experts in the found money business.

They’re posted here and there throughout this page, like this one for $44,918.87.


Hooked on Overages Worked for Me!

We’ve designed a remarkable new training program, Hooked on Overages, that’ll have you trained and in business in a matter of weeks.

Now, some people might consider this “overkill,” but we want to make sure you hit the ground running so we’ve included in the program . . .

  • Our “proven” claim letter, all ready to send. This is the same letter we’ve tested, re-tested, and fine-tuned for the last year and a half. We not only know it’s better than any others we’ve seen (and we tested the letters our competitors use just to prove it), we know it flat-out works.
  • We use email to gather the information we need to find unclaimed funds and have prepared a set of “friendly” email templates you’ll use to contact agencies, request their lists of claims, and submit your claims for processing. Messing up this part will quickly bring your business to a grinding halt, so there really is no room for error when it comes time to make contact. With our fill-in-the-blank templates, mistakes cannot happen.
  • Contracts and agreements keep your business on track. To protect ourselves, we use the very best. Our legal documents are designed to be effective in every state (but make sure your attorney checks them out just the same), so use them with confidence and know your interests are covered.
  • Have questions about claims, claimants, or the business itself and want immediate answers? Just visit the private “member’s only” forum to see how others have handled your issues. And you can be sure both Joe and I as well as my staff will be lurking, ready to answer questions about whatever you come up against.
  • And it won’t be just me to assist you. I’ve brought along a partner and a handful of former students who’ve already gone through the program and are eager to “mix it up” in the forums. Their real-world experiences are invaluable to investors brand new to the found money business.

You’re are doing a fantastic job!

Al Brouillette, commenting on the training program.

Act NOW! Space is Limited!

1. Twelve Online Training Classes - each breaking down a specific component of the business and each with an 8 – 10 minute video that walks you through the process.

2. Daily Chat Sessions - after each day’s video lesson, we’ll stick around for a one hour chat to go over the lesson in detail and make sure you’ve got it down pat. If you can’t make the chat? No problem . . . we’ll be archiving everything so you can come back online at any time to see what you missed or review it again.

3. Our Tested Legal Documents - (this feature alone will save you $1,000’s in Attorney fees) We’ll spend whole sessions on the legal documents and another on the marketing letters, and yet another on the claim processing forms. Yes, all the documents, letters and claim forms are included in the program and before you’re through you’ll know them backwards and forwards.

4. Teleseminars – allow us to get a group together and really deliver a ton of information over a short period of time. Each week we’ll be hosting a 90 minute teleseminar where we give important updates, do interviews with experts in the found money business, and maybe even feature a student or two who’s having success and wants to share his or her story.

5. Support Forums - We know support is one of the most important things we bring to the table, and we’ve created a member forum where you and your fellow students can ask questions, make suggestions, or even talk about their experiences as their businesses develop. We’ll be there as well, constantly looking to assist you any way possible to insure your best chances of success. It’s really simple – we don’t succeed if you don’t.

6. The Massive eBook Archive - Once the program is competed, we’re packing everything into an ebook and giving you a copy you can take on the road, It will include all the lessons, the videos, the chats, and even the teleseminars. This thing will be HUGE and packed with the entire course, so everything you need to know about the found money business is always at your fingertips


How to Get Started as a Found Money Pro?
Step One – Take Action!


The challenge was to put a suitable price tag on a business that realistically generates $100,000 a year and more for top performers. Remember Steve, the fellow from Ohio who created $60k in just two weeks? What do you suppose this training was worth to him?

We knew we wanted to keep the price affordable so anyone choosing to join the Hooked on Overages 12 Step Program could do so without breaking the bank or maxing out their credit cards, and so at the end of the day decided $2,997.00 represented a great value.

But my gut told me that was way too much and over the objection of my partners, I’m slashing the price to $1,697.00. That’s it! And yes, that includes everything described above, including the one hour 1 on 1 coaching.

The $1,697.00 price is on a “first come, first served basis,” and I reserve the right to go back to the original $3k at any time.

You guys are teaching us in a way that is easy to understand.

Mike Plociak, current Hooked on Overages student.

“Why is the Found Money Business Such
a Great Way to Create Profits?”

  • The business model itself has no physical borders. You can put it into play in your town, your state, or anywhere in the country where working the found money business makes sense. And if for some reason you’re not happy doing business locally, there’s no reason not to move to greener pastures where opportunity abounds.
  • No expensive equipment or fancy hi-tech gear is needed. We run our business with a computer, and internet connection, and a cell phone. That’s about all you really need, but if you want to splurge, a fax machine is always handy to have around.
  • It’s not only easy to learn, it’s equally easy to run. The system is “process driven” so it’s almost as easy as “flipping a switch” to handle whatever situation arises. What do you do when a signed claim form comes in? There’s a step-by-step process already set up and you just follow along to get the results you need.
  • Whenever you start a new business there’s that unenviable learning curve to be conquered, and pretending it’s easy or doesn’t exist just ignores reality. We’ve attempted to wrestle that darn learning curve to the ground and make it as painless as possible to get you past.
  • Are you risk adverse like me? If so, you’ll appreciate just how little it takes to get your own found money business up and running. But even more to your advantage, in this business we don’t pay for our deals out of pocket. That means every deal is no money down. Clients get paid when we get paid so writing checks and hoping things turn out “okay” is now a thing of the past.
  • Is there really ZERO competition? No, not for the most common foreclosure overage situations. There are some savvy investors out there who’ve stumbled on to the found money business and are starting to make inroads, but you probably won’t run into more than a couple in any given area. All that means is you need strategies that put you ahead of the pack and we’ve got those strategies in full gear.
  • There are found money situations where there really is no competition, and if you know where to look you’ll find fresh ground where you are the only player in the game. Those are opportunities that haven’t been made public and will be disclosed only to Hooked on Overage students.
  • Why is this the found money business the “perfect work from home” opportunity? Easy! Since everything is done online or through the mail, there’s no need to open an office or have a staff of assistants to get started. Sure, your business may develop into a “big deal” that outgrows your home office, but there’s no need for it just to get things off the ground.
  • And since “home-based” is where we recommend you start, there’s almost no overhead! Who doesn’t have a computer, an email account and a phone? If you’re already set up, there’s really no additional overhead. Sure, plan on paying for business cards and a website so you look and act like a real business, but that’s about all you’ll need.
  • I’m sometimes asked if age is a factor and if anyone, young or old, can work the found money business. Absolutely. If you’re 18 or 88 or somewhere in between, you can be in the found money business and bringing in claim checks just like the rest of us.


How’s This For a REAL Guarantee?

Our “Money Back” Guarantee If you are dissatisfied with the Hooked on Overages 12-Step Training Program, just say “cancel” within 30 days for a full refund – for any reason, or no reason at all. No hassles & no hard feelings.

That puts 100% of the risk on our shoulders, not yours, exactly where it should be.


“It’s Not Too Late to Get Started”

Can you imagine seeing claim checks like the ones pictured here in your mail box? And can you see yourself working from home, setting your own hours and not sitting in traffic? Are you sick of the daily grind?

It’s time to make that change and take action!

Listen, I’ve been at this found money thing for a couple years now, and I can tell you with 100% certainty there really is no better opportunity I know of (and believe me, I’ve looked).

Jump on board today, learn what it takes to reconnect people with their unclaimed funds, and start seeing those checks headed your way. It really is just that simple.

Time for YOU to “Hero Up?”

Isn’t it about time you “hero up” and start reuniting lost and abandoned funds with their rightful owners? And isn’t it also time to make sure some faceless government agency doesn’t snatch up all their money and call it their own?

Seeing funds going unclaimed and reverting to government coffers turns my stomach and I’m on a mission to do whatever I can to end it.

And do you know how I’m starting?

On Wednesday, August 12th, 2009, we will begin the Hooked on Overages training program, and by the time we’re done we’ll be on the way to eliminating hundreds of thousands of dollars from going unclaimed.

What the heck, let’s roll up our sleeves and go for millions!

We think those funds should go to John and Jane Q. Public. It’s their money, after all, and they’re more than happy to pay us 40 or even 50% of it as a way of saying “thanks” for helping them recover their funds!

If you’re serious about a real business opportunity that will reward you with profits you can take to the bank, then grab a spot and hang onto your hat . . . the training is now just days away.

See you there!

P.S. Now remember, the program includes 12 online training sessions with videos, the daily chats that follow, the weekly teleseminars, the 24/7 support, and the 270 MB eCourse, all for just $1,697!

P.P.S. I know one of my partner’s former students pocketed just shy of $140k less than two months after taking his training. She had NO experience and today works just a couple hours a day and makes more than she’d ever dreamed possible. That’s the power of the Hooked on Overages 12-Step Program!
