I saw this on GMA and found this site very easy to use, just choose the state you lived in, enter your full name and they will cross reference everything for you. You can find money owed from past employers, gift certificates never used, escrow money never claimed, inheritances money, shares of stocks you forgot about. Like me I found shares of INtel stock I completely forgot about. It could even be money the state owes you and just could not find you or posibly a rebate from a cell phone company. Its worth looking into , some people have found hundreds even tens of thousands of dollars for them self's and family members alike. If your skeptical watch the Sept 24 2012 issue of

How can you find out if you have unclaimed property?
Go online. The easiest way to search for property is go to the NAUPA Web site www.unclaimed.org. NAUPA is a nonprofit organization affiliated with the National Association of State Treasurers, and is the source for information on unclaimed property. NAUPA's site links to individual state Web sites, which allow you to search for your property.
Have you ever wondered if you or a family member may have money owed to them from the states they live in? According to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, nearly $33 billion in unclaimed money — including payroll checks, utility refunds and trust distributions — "is currently being safeguarded by state treasurers and other agencies for 117 million accounts." NAUPA asserts that in 2006, $1.754 billion was returned to the rightful owners. The website missingmoney.com is a tool that enables you to check a database for evidence that some of that unclaimed money is yours.
