Who Owes You? State Site Reveals Unclaimed Property

Bank accounts, stocks and bonds, cashier's checks and money orders—you may be eligible for cash and property.

Remember that rebate you filled out a few years ago but never claimed? Or maybe someone left you some money, only you never found out.

A state website helps connect you with your lost property, whether it's a closed bank account, stocks and bonds or your great uncle's collection of bowties.

Run by the Unclaimed Property Division of the State Controller's Office, this website makes it as easy to reclaim lost property as typing in your name.

For instance, Mission Viejo City Councilman Frank Ury is owed $60 from a rebate company and another $50 from Upromise Inc. with college savings.

District Attorney Tony Rackauckas is owed $273.89 for an unclaimed checking account, and someone with the same name is owed $1,600 in the form of an unclaimed cashier's check.

CHECK THE WEBSITE TO SEE IF YOU'RE OWED MONEY OR PROPERTY. If you are, TELL US IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.

Birth certificate crypt keeper Orly Taitz is owed $21.50 (http://bit.ly/VLABLV) More fun when the name is not common. Slovenly clad investigative reporter Penny Arevalo some $500 (http://bit.ly/VLB4NV) John Webb could probably fund his next campaign, if he could convince everyone that he is you. http://bit.ly/VLBzrm
