Thirty-two billion dollars is waiting, just waiting for you. That’s right. BILLION. With a ‘B’. Acording to the states… that’s how much money is lying unclaimed, tucked away in warehouses, gathering dust until people like you and me raise their hand to say, ‘that’s mine’.
Good Morning America has been on a mission to reunite everyday people with this money. And so far, more than $400-thousand has been put into the correct hands.
Today, the largest single check will be given to a Kansas City, Missouri woman. $6.1 MILLION dollars. Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently, her ancestors purchased an obscure stock years and years ago. That stock has clearly increased in value, though it was never passed down the appropriate channels. Until now. (She would like to remain anonymous)
Let’s talk about this for a minute. And then I would love to hear your thoughts.
