I do not know where the funds are located. It appears to be corporate stocks but not in a brokerage account from what I can tell. My mother was a Minnesota resident with a home in Arizona which was where she lived the last year of her life, although she didn't take the steps to change state residence (driver's license, paying state tax in AZ).
That may be more information than you need but I'm trying to cover as much as I can.
LCS claims they are "contracted" by companies to find owners of unclaimed assets. Aren't those companies also required to make the information public?
Thanks for the information.You have some places to look first.I would start here--you can search and file claim if it here.These are unclaimed funds in Minnesota that are turned to state and you can claim them.http://mn.gov/commerce/topics/Unclaimed-Property/Information-For-Claimants/Here is the one for Arizona, again you can try here for free.http://www.azunclaimed.gov/All states have these so if you think there may be another state or two try them too.It costs you nothing and this is where they get their names and information about assets.
All the other states, these are the free ones that these guys are accessing.You can do this yourself and save your money.
Thanks for letting me assist you today.I wish you the best recovering this yourself.
I had already checked the unclaimed asset sites of Minnesota and Arizona, as well as any others I could think of at the first website that lets you check multiple states. For the last 40 years my mother lived in Minnesota with the winter home in AZ. So, the property should be "located" in one of those states, correct?
