3 Steps You Can Take To Verify A Money Refund Agent
STEP 1: Ask An Agent for Proof Of UMAA Registration Number
You should always ask a money refund agent for their certificate of UMAA registration details as proof and validity of their training before signing any forms or commencing work to refund your lost funds. You will need their name, Registration number and the state in which they trade.
STEP 2: Verify their details with Unclaimed Money Association
If you are unsatisfied with just an agents proof of registration, you can verify their credibility with Unclaimed Money Association. We will tell you whether the agent/consultant you are working with is credible and send you verification of this.
STEP 3 Check their Website for Credibility
When an agent registers with the Unclaimed Money Association of Australia ( then he/she will receive a registration certificate of the Unclaimed Money Association of Australia registration) stamps of credibility including their UMAA registered number that they are required to list on their website to identify themselves to consumers.**
What Kind of Documents Should I Be Looking For
When verifying a refund agent, you should be looking for 3 things.
- An Association agents registration number and certificate of registration.
- Credibility stamps on their website advising consumers and clients of their Association registration.
- Membership to Unclaimed Money Association (we also produce our own credibility stamp as proof of membership that our members place on their website.)
