Did you ever hear of a website called Unclaimed.org? Basically it is a government website that you can go to a do a search of yourself or family members. Then if there is any money out there it will find it for you.
- Savings or checking accounts- balances you forgot about
- Payroll checks
- Insurance payments or refunds and life insurance policies
- Customer overpayments
- Utility security deposits
I went on this site about a week ago and found $39 from Citi Bank- I had overpaid a credit card and did not know. It was a card I canceled years ago. My cousin also has a check for a few hundred dollars- an old payroll check that he never got.
It is worth checking out I think!
Let me know if you find any lost money!
