5. ClaimDog … Lets you Search to see if a Business owes You Money. The result might surprise you
The makers of this app foresees a future when, according to stats, over $60 billion of “unclaimed property” or “missing money” in the United States, is returned to its rightful owner(s). claimdog’s mission is to increase the awareness and transparency around this issue.
Claimdog lets you search to see if a business owes you money. Unclaimed property is created when a business owes an individual or organization money, but wasn’t able to get it to them successfully. For example, say you forget to cash a check — where does that money go? State governments require that a business must, by law, turn it over to them after a period of time has passed. Uncashed checks, stock dividends, checks sent to old addresses, abandoned bank accounts or PayPal accounts, and inheritances are all common sources of these unclaimed properties.
The numbers are staggering — there is over $60 billion owed. In California alone, approximately 32.5 million individuals / organizations are owed. We don’t know the exact figure, but across the US, between 1 in 5 and 1 in 10 people have money owed to them. So try it out and we’d love to hear your feedback!
