The Price of Heir
It's always someone who is far enough removed that they didn't keep in touch with a branch of the family,'' said Lori Perlman, a wills and trusts lawyer in New York. The businesses employ workers to sift through probate court filings and estates in search of people who have recently died and who may have missing or unknown heirs. Then, using court and census records, atlases, genealogical documents and other public data, they compete to track down potential beneficiaries of an estate and then sell their services — helping heirs prove their lineage and secure an inheritance — on a contingency-fee basis.
For competitive reasons, the firms typically withhold details of the estate until after they secure a binding and exclusive contract with a client that guarantees them a cut of any inheritance they secure. Though the companies tout their ability online to recover money for cousins far removed, they also acknowledge that their business practices have raised eyebrows. Rhetorical question-and-answer sections on some of the companies' websites include questions such as, "How do I know this is legitimate?
In a pair of criminal cases, Justice Department officials have accused the industry of being tainted by efforts to eliminate competition by colluding on contingency fees and sharing customer payments. As part of the scheme, prosecutors allege, once a firm makes contact with an heir, rival firms will agree to back off from approaching other heirs to the same estate, but still share in the contingency fees. If there's no competition, they can charge whatever rate they feel someone will pay and not ever have to worry about being undercut.

Ain't nothing fair about the streets. There is no way to win. That's a lifestyle that your either know what you are in for or what you stand for. Lamia was in over her head in my opinion. I know she was put in a position after Cross's death, but when the opportunity served itself for her to step back after she did her deed.
