Why am I being contacted by Franklin?

If a representative of Franklin has contacted you, it is because we have located an asset that remains unclaimed by you or someone you know. We are not debt collectors under any circumstance. We contact people for the sole purpose of connecting them with a valuable asset. The majority of the time this asset is in the form of money. Contact from Franklin is absolutely a positive thing, and in many cases can be life changing for the better!

Are Franklin debt collectors?

No. Under no circumstance do we attempt to collect any debts whatsoever at any time.

How did Franklin get my phone number and/or e-mail address?

We employ a number of investigative techniques in order to find those people who we are attempting to get an unclaimed asset to. We utilize a number of databases, as well as public records which can help us get into contact with our clients. At no time do we share in any way the data that we collect. Our client's privacy is extremely important to us, and something we take very seriously in protecting. Read more under our privacy policy.

How much does your service cost?

We work on a contingency basis, meaning that we will not collect a fee unless we are successful in bringing the asset to you as promised. There are costs that are associated with the claims process. However, Franklin will cover all of these costs, and in the rare case in which we fail to collect the asset on your behalf, you will not be responsible for any expenses whatsoever, and we include this detail in our agreements in plain English. When we are successful, Franklin will take a percentage of what is collected. The percentage varies from case to case, depending on the asset, and the entity which is holding it. Under these circumstances, our clients enjoy a 100% no risk, no lose situation, while standing to gain a lot.
