Because I am without photos at the moment--thought I would make a public announcement here and this is it--
Did you know that states have websites in which you can search for unclaimed property? Well it's true--at least for Washington and Oregon--and having checked both of them it didn't take me long to come up with the names of businesses, friends and family that I was familiar with; the money owed them ranged from under $50 to over $100 and the sites clearly describe how to claim it. Check it out yourselves -- just 'google' unclaimed property and your state's name. BTW--the sites I searched were clearly government sites and appear to be totally legit; it goes without saying (but I will say it anyway) I would make CERTAIN that you are dealing with a government website before giving any personal info out in this day and age!!!! Good luck!
