Unclaimed Money for You

How the scam works:

This is an excerpt from a real scammer’s e-mail: “Public records indicate that $3,226,519 of unclaimed money has been turned over to the State of California for distribution.

Potentially an amount of money from this fund belongs to you. For instructions and your UMC Form (Unclaimed Money Collection Form) return this form along with a $20 check to: Asset Recovery, PO Box,….”.

The message above could come to your inbox, tailored to the country you’re living in. Indeed, answering this email with a $20 check and a form filled out not only would “lighten” your bank account but also give the crook access to your personal information.

How to avoid:

Although it sounds tempting, that’s not how things work with unclaimed money, no matter your country.

Make your friends and family aware of this scam by sharing it, using the buttons provided.

There are legitimate sources of unclaimed money. Best action is to log on to the state treasury department – I have found the following – 1.) A refund due me on mortgage insurance when I paid off the mortgge on my home. (2.) A refund due from th4e phone company for a "paid in advance" bill. (3.) A forgotten: savings account which was never closed; (4.) A mutual fund held in closed brokerage account. Anyone who has paid off a mortgage, moved from one state to another, paid for utility connections in advance, etc. can probably find a refund due.
