Missourians Warned of Unclaimed Property Scam

March 29, 2016

Missourians are being targeted by an “unclaimed property” scam letter claiming to be from the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA). The letter instructs the recipient to pay a fee to receive “unclaimed property.” The Missouri State Treasurer, Clint Zweifel, is warning Missourians of the scam and reminding individuals that they can check for unclaimed property any time on the Missouri State Treasurer’s Office website to begin the claims process free of charge.

Individuals can also check for unclaimed property outside of Missouri at National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators. The site provides links to other states where you can search free of charge.

If you believe you are a victim of the scam letter, you can contact the Missouri Attorney General’s Consumer Protection hotline at 800-392-8222 or visit the website to file a complaint.
