There's something attractive about the idea of buried treasure. You find a map, follow the directions, have a few adventures and end up rich. What's not to love?
Unfortunately, this tip isn't about how to find buried treasure. However, it IS about another type of unclaimed money that's just lying around waiting for you to find it.
And, unlike buried treasure, you don't have to race other treasure hunters to get this stash. The money already has your name on it because it's yours.
Before we tell you about it, however, we do want to give you a warning. A lot of scammers and scam websites use the idea of finding unclaimed money as a way to trick you. They'll try to charge you a fee to run the search, or they'll say they'll need information like your Social Security number.
Every place we’re sending you is free to search and free to get any money you find. If you do have to give out sensitive information, it will be to the government, and it will be information they already have. If you somehow find yourself on a site that's asking for money, you're in the wrong place.
With that said, let's get you some money.
