Unlike the flood of Work from Home opportunities such as envelope
stuffing, filing medical forms, processing emails or MLM schemes
that promise get rich over night, processing FHA mortgage
insurance refunds is a real job as a work from home business. The
power of the Internet in locating the refund recipients has made this
opportunity even more appealing.
Processing FHA insurance refunds is a real job that was originated
by the Federal Government to assist them in finding and returning
unclaimed mortgage insurance refunds to individuals who once had
an FHA mortgage insurance policy when they purchased their home.
This FHA insurance premium could have cost the homeowner up to
2.5% of their loan amount at time of purchase. However, this
insurance terminates if homeowner paid off their mortgage early,
sold their home or refinanced their home with a non-FHA loan.
As a result, the homeowner maybe due a prorated amount of the
insurance premium as a refund. By the time HUD/FHA discovers
or is informed to terminate the FHA insurance policy, the homeowner
likely has moved on. The Government attempts to contact these
homeowners by mail to return their refund, but with limited
success. As a result, there are more than 100,000 individuals who are
due FHA insurance refunds totaling over $120,0,000 and growing.
Admittedly this opportunity has gotten a bad rap from a number
of companies and individuals who have abused this opportunity
in the following manner.
? Claim or advertise themselves as an Official Representative
? Mislead people in that as a Tracer one works for HUD/FHA and
will be paid by the Government.
? Present themselves as an employment agency that has a job
available. For a finders fee, the individual will be merely
sent a few forms and how to contact HUD/FHA.
? Many have re-scripted material for supposed Manuals but are
not Unclaimed Asset professionals. Plus they offer no support.
? Resell or offer outdated copies of unclaimed cases. HUD updates
the states lists of FHA unclaimed insurance refunds each month.
Good luck to all. This is just one of a number of viable Work
from Home Opportunities one can be successful with effort
