Unclaimed Money Scam

However, finding free or unclaimed money on the Net is one of the oldest
scams in the book.

How it Works

  One email unclaimed money scam starts off: "There's over 400 billion
dollars in unclaimed money - and some of it belongs to you!" They will help
you locate your unclaimed money. All you need to do is call this particular
1-809 number. The company claims that they'll do a search for free.

Reality Check

  What they don't tell you is that they're going to make money on that 1-809
phone number for starters. They also don't tell you that they'll send you a
refined search that includes your last name and first initial in an official
looking database list, and that although they can't guarantee it's you, you'll
need to pay a fee or buy a membership before they'll check any further.
Others charge the fee even if they only locate $2.64 and still others are
aimed at getting your personal information in order to commit identity theft.

  The good news is that you can do this research for free through
state-sanctioned unclaimed funds registries and see if there really is
unclaimed money or property owed to you.
