??? Free Money ???
I know it just doesn't sound real, does it? However, an exciting thing happened tonight while I was searching on-line for college scholarships for my oldest son.
On our Tennessee state web-site, I came across two websites for Unclaimed Property Searches. I've heard about these sites in the past and, no doubt, held my breath while I searched for our names in hopes that somewhere there was some unclaimed treasure awaiting our discovery.
Well tonight I got a BIG surprise. My husband's name DID show up on one of the searches for two unclaimed property entries! Hurray! One is for between $10-$100 and the other is for $100 or more. Now all I have to do is complete the claim forms and submit them to receive our lost property.
Can you imagine how excited I am? You know me ~ I get excited about Walmart freebies or a free gum sample!
So if you get a chance, just stop by these sites and type your name in ... and your husband's name ... and your maiden name ... and your mother's name ... well you get the idea. You just never know!
Missing Money is a nationwide search. Our names did not appear on this search.
NAUPA is a list of state maintained web-sites. We ran our names in each state where we've lived in the past. And from a state link on this site is where my lucky husband's name appeared!
Blessings often come from the most unexpected places, don't they?
