Unclaimed Property Coming My Way

Treasurer Lynn Fitch spoke at the Flowood Rotary Club yesterday. Part of what she talked about included her office's shepherding of unclaimed property. "It's so easy," she said, to determine if you have unclaimed property out there. Go to the Unclaimed Property website and click the search button.

When I returned to the office, I took her up on it.  It took all of ten seconds to determine neither my wife, nor I, had any lost money. However, I did see where my law firm, Blair & Bondurant, P.A., did. I filled out the claim form online and mailed it in yesterday. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, all you reading this should take ten seconds and search for your name. You never know. Just make sure you pass me my 10% finder's fee. 

John Dailey of Brandon had no idea there was $200,000.00 out there for him.

This reminds me of the time I was notified by Publisher's Clearing House that I was a winner. YES, I actually won money from PCH., and a check was to follow. I could not wait for the check to arrive, and it did.
There it was, an actual check from PCH, my winnings. I was so excited to rip the envelope open to find ALL of my wishes coming true !!!
&100,000 dollars? No wait, $10,000 dollars?
(Strange how your eyes play tricks on you when you are so emotional)
I felt like Ralphie when he learned the secret message was "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine"
The check was for $1.00 ......I still have it.

Congratulations on your win.

The Treasurer's website kindly advises whether the claim is over or under $100. My firm's was under $100. I have no doubt it will be for $1.50, or something. But I wanted to go through the process for kicks and giggles.

I went to the website and put in my late fathers name, it came back as over $100.
I then looked a little deeper and the office of the Treasurer informed me it was over $6000.

I have had a very good day.
thanks Troy!
