Finding Money

Do you check the websites that list money that is due to people? This is unclaimed money and could be money owed to you by anyone or any government entity or private company or bank.


So far, I haven't found any money owed to me, but we live in hope, she said, smiling.


Two websites that seem official, and that Kim Komando the computer expert at komando.com wrote about are:

unclaimed.org

missingmoney.com


These are for people living in the USA and in parts of Canada. For my blog friends living elsewhere you may find sites for your country. It helps if your name is a bit unusual, like Dame Edna, rather than Mary Smith. Good luck hunting for treasure and let me know if you find some money please.

We have listings in the local newspaper and I always check when I see them. So far, nothing, but yes, we wait in hope.

I check these every once in a while, but so far no luck for me. :)

We actually DID find some money owed to us a few years back. Can't remember the website, but it was over $50! Unexpected money is always a blessing! Thanks for listing the websites. Have a great week! And I hope you find some money that's owed you, too!

Thanks for the links. My husband loves checking out these. Hope you have a nice Tuesday.

Hi there, If only I could find some missing money but have checked and there is nothing there for me. I'd also like to find a money tree but am trying to be content as life is.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by to say hello.

I will have to check this out! One never knows if money owed will be paid up and found at the right time! Great tip. Have a great day Kim!

Years ago my husband got money back from a title company. $700! So it pays to check.

Oh my I am just hoping I have some hidden money somewhere...I'm sure I do with all I've lost over time! This is a great post and great sites to check out.
I want to tell you, I really appreciate your comment about my story on today's post, that means so much to me coming from you...someone who not only writes but has published! I am so flattered and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
