Someone was apparently sending funds to my P.O. box in CA from OH
I received a certified letter saying funds were seized from a post office in OHThey were addressed to my P.O. Box in CAI received one letter by mail and a duplicate via certified letter.I did not claim the funds. I didn’t respond to the letter at all. The letter asked for a response by 12/11.Will I receive any more letters or is the matter now considered closed because I did not file a claim by the deadline?
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 6 months ago

Did you sign for the receipt of the certified letter? Did the letter say that the funds where your funds to claim?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
