What is a finder? Should I pay one?

A finder is a person who may contact you offering to locate your funds from foreclosure auctions for a fee. Before you sign anything or pay a fee, check with the Office of the Public Trustee to see if your name is on the list. You may also visit the Public Trustee’s page to check for your name.
