Unclaimed property (by Zizi [CA]) Posted on: Jan 29, 2023 7:59 PM

Hello All,

I received a letter from state controller saying I have an unclaimed money. It indicates the type of property as Escrow Accounts. It also says they were unable to contact me since 2018. I have a property that i purchased in 2018. At the bottom of the letter it also says the state controllerís office does not have you property.

I showed the letter to a friend and she said itís legit . I also donít think the amount is big for a fraud but it will help me if I get it. According to the letter it says one additional owner may be entitled to this property. If you have experienced this kind of issue, I would like your feedback

Thank you

You can go online to the State Controllers office, Google California Unclaimed Property.

I ran my cousin's name thru it and found he had half a million in an account belonging to his father, who died years ago. It took him six months to get around to filing a claim for it. This is what happens when you are left $80,000,000 in real estate. Half a mil not worth the immediate effort.

I wish I had this problem. --47.149.xxx.x

I don't know CA laws but here in MO it is very much worth checking into.

HOWEVER, I would not contact, write, call or have any dealings with anyone on the letter.

Go directly to your state unclaimed property office and deal directly with them. Robert J gave you information.

Many years ago - 1968 - while serving in the military overseas when we would get a phone call asking for any one's information we never answered any questions. We always ask for the name of the people calling and wanting the information and we ask for their phone number.

We then called the military phone system and ask for person and their phone number. several times the person and phone number didn't match. Imagine that! --71.28.xxx.xx

We had gotten an unclaimed letter from someone willing to get it for a fee. The letter had enough info that I did some digging. I called and SO went to the physical address. It was legit. Go to your state's Unclaimed property website. Every state has one. There is NO charge to get your money. Mine was a refund on taxes. Not sure why they couldn't find me as I haven't moved, that was frustrating, but we got the money. --73.230.xxx.xx

As Robert J noted, you'll just need to visit the California State Controller's Office. I myself actually went through this process to help relatives claim unclaimed money. It is easy but just requires maybe a printer and a copier. We needed to provide a document or two as proof of the person's name and the address where the person lived.

The check will arrive around a month after you send all of the information to the State Controller's office. Best of luck and hope that you receive the funds smoothly. --73.158.xxx.xxx
