Some snippets from this week that don't relate to New Jersey and gift cards:
Pennsylvania Reporting Deadline Coming - Most state unclaimed property reports are due in the fall, but there are a handful of "Spring" reporting states. In this press release, Pennsylvania State Treasurer Rob McCord reminds holder's that Pennsylvania's report deadline is on April 15th. Holders with questions or who need assistance in advance of the deadline can contact the Treasurer's Office.
Trial Set to Begin For Former Unclaimed Property Auditor - Last September, we mentioned
the story of a former Oklahoma unclaimed property auditor who was charged with stealing unclaimed property from the state. Now, according to The Oklahoman, the trial of the former auditor, LaTisha Reid, is scheduled to begin next Wednesday.
Philly Sheriff Settles With State In early 2011, we mentioned an unclaimed property investigation of the Philadelphia Sheriff's Office concerning the mishandling of unclaimed property. According to a press release from the Pennsylvania State Treasury, the Sheriff's office has turned over in excess of $23 million to the state, all of which will now be made available for claims. According to the Treasurer, the state has "already processed 167 claims and returned nearly $409,000 to rightful owners."
